I was raised in the Church at the age of 7 when my mom gave her life over to Jesus. I remember seeing people wave their hands in the air, and praise God and flags of Israel waving all over the church setting. Then at the age of 16, I was filled with the Holy Spirit and I began missionary work at 19. I decided in my heart that I would follow God. I went through some ups and downs, but Jesus has always protected me and kept me on the right path and He has been a light for me all of my life.
In the Spring of 2020, I met the father of my baby who I didn’t know had a hidden anger issue and a track record of broken relationships. Not only was he a womanizer but he also had a criminal record that he hid from me. He was verbally and physically violent with me when I was pregnant and afterwards during my post-partum, he strangled me. He was also an adulterer and got a woman pregnant right after I had given birth to my son. I felt the Holy Spirit leading me out of that relationship as it was dragging me down and keeping me away from the presence of God and from spiritual growth. When I decided to leave him, and took my four-month old baby to a family shelter nearby, he found out where I was and he decided to plot on my life and called CPS and made false allegations about my mental health and had them take my son away from me by two police officers and the CPS social worker. I went into a deep depression. Immediately the court set up counseling, domestic violence courses, parenting classes and I found Post-Partum Mama’s on Facebook. The court extended my improvement period to January 20, 2023 in order to reinstate my custody. I am a good mother and I believe that I have been persecuted for my faith. I also believe that God will give me the victory in the name of Jesus! I have been doing everything the court needs me to do and has mandated me to do. I am praying for a miraculous turn around and for God to favor my son and I and my entire blood family and that Jesus would speak a better Word over me because He always will! May my son be returned to me in the name of Jesus, and may God secure my destiny and that of my family in Christ and of my son in Jesus’ name, amen!
God has used Post-Partum Mamas tremendously in my life and as a result, my peace has returned to me for the wonderful fellowship, accountability and sisterhood that the group provides. The sense of ease in which the group flows, and the very evident and tangible love of God that is vividly expressed through all of the mamas here! My mental health in terms of anxiety and depression has decreased substantially, all glory to God!
Post-Partum Mamas has also helped me in terms of finances. With the help of Olivia Sheridan and the rest of the leadership team, I was able to go fly out to West Virginia to see my son in October of 2022 and again with PPM, I will be able to see him once again in January 2023 and spend some very valuable time with him that I know both him and I will cherish for years to come.
I hope to see the day that Post-Partum Mamas begins to launch globally so that the help that our group receives will be able to be spread abroad for many more to benefit from! Including the low income housing program that I believe Olivia Sheridan initiated and has a dream of. My prayer is that she continues to receive the proper funding to help as many mamas as possible. All moms deserve to be loved, treated with respect and held in high honor and have access to receive financial assistance to provide for their family and have housing services facilitated to them year-round. It is not only a benefit but a great blessing from God.
What the Enemy meant for evil, God will turn around for my good – just like the book of Genesis tells of. Just like Joseph was betrayed by his family members, I was betrayed but then he was promoted and I know that God will promote me in His perfect time and deliver me from all of these trials and give me the ultimate victory. My son has a strong calling, he is almost 2 years of age at the moment and I know that like his mother, he will do great things for the Lord and for His glory!
