Please I know I am young so do not judge me until you have read my story...I've never turned to the Lord for anything before this. My Nanny, (my grandma), has been there for me since I was a baby and more like a mother to me. In September of 08 we found out she has pancreatic cancer and it had moved to her liver. I was highly upset at this and I questioned the Lord for letting this happen to her. But she was a strong person and she would over come this, or so we thought. In November, she started going to church and she got saved. She told my mom that she would stand at the gates and wait for us all to come. Also in November my whole family got saved. In December I went to stay the night with my boyfriend, and yes we had sex, our first time. I was 16 and he was 17. In January I stared feeling a little sick every now and then. My nanny told my mama she was having someones morning sickness and she thought I was pregnant. Mama didn't believe her and told her there was no way I could be, but she was wrong. I never had morning sickness before this. My Nanny went home to be with the Lord January 19th at 10:15pm. I was so depressed and thought about killing myself, there was noway I could go on. The morning of January 20th, the day I was suppose to stay my period, I woke up throwing up! I told my boyfriend what had happened and he blamed it on nerves. The day we received friends, which was the 21st, I took a pregnancy test and sure enough POSITIVE!! I was going to be Mama, and I couldn't kill myself now because I had a miracle living inside of me now. And it wouldn't have been fair for me to take the life of this baby!! I told my Mama and she was more happy then upset, but she felt guilty because I was only 16. I was 5 weeks on the dot when I went for an ultrasound.. In the waiting room to go back, Mama was on her phone playing the word game and it showed up EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. I had a rough pregnancy but the Lord never left me. I stayed in the hospital from August 4th untill I had him on the 21st of August. I was 34 weeks and 6 days. They told me that he would only be 4 pounds and 6 ouces, and he might have to stay in the NICU the day before the induced me, but he came out weighing 5 pounds 2ounces. He had no problems breathing. I had two roundsof steriods a week earlier for his lungs. Two days later he came home. He was completly heathly with NO problems, PRAISE THE LORD!!!!! He is now a month old. Thanks for reading

Praise God, I don't think you know how powerful a tool you can be for the Lord. Congrats on your baby, and as young as you are, I know Christians my age (37) that can't speak of the Glory of God as well as you did. Stay encouraged, stay focused and remember to keep God in everything. I served as the director of a childcare program for teenage mothers last year and it just started again this October, and I am blessed to work with this population. You all have so much to offer when you show others that you can still succeed. God Bless you.

Sweetie, that's a wonderful account and praise God for His goodness! And your little miracle! :) And don't you worry. God looks at your heart and He's the only one who truly matters. Know it's easier to hear it than believe it, but you get into the Word. He'll show you so many people who have "pasts" and God moved through them in tremendous ways!

Hold on to His hope and that baby and love Him.

Who are we to judge? I know I can not fix my mouth to judge anyone after all the stuff I've done.

But Thanks be to God, Thanks be to God. Thank Him everyday for GRACE AND MERCY.

Just listen to your tesimony, members of your family are saved, your grandmother is in a way better placebecause she gave her life to Christ, so now you know she is no longer suffering, you have a beautiful and healthy baby, and you are here in your right state of mind. Girl, there's nothing shameful about you!!!!



Be Blessed

Thank you so much for sharing your testimony! God is so good!!!

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven:

a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,

a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,

a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,

a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,

a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,

a time to love and a time to hate,
a time for war and a time for peace.

How could I judge you? Now I have not gone through what you have gone through, but that does not make me any less a sinner Saved by God's Grace. I do not have to tell you that you will have many challenges alone the way, you already know that.



Jeremiah 29:11 - 'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the LORD, ' plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'



Remember that God will NEVER LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU!

Congratulations on your healthy son.

I thank God that He has saved you. Yes you are young, but God will still use you.

1Ti 4:12 Don‘t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.

So you've had a rough start, but God is with you and has brought you through & will continue to do so if you let Him. Now however it is a greater responsibility as He has place one of His little ones into your care. I pray that you will lean on Him for guidance and trust him to lead you & teach. I pray that you will enjoy your walk with Jesus, Bless you Erica in Jesus precious name.
