Life Lounge – Mother of Perseverance

My life is very ordinary – how do I bring out God’s merciful love in my busy life? This was a question that plagued Ailey, a mother of two boys with ADHD. Her life was filled with challenges, but she understood her duty to lead her sons on the right path to God, bringing them to church and instilling a strong awareness of God’s presence. Once while driving lost, her younger son guided her back onto the correct route. When her older son became rebellious, she learned of a private military school that formed him into a disciplined young man. And when he struggled with his learning disability while applying for university, the kindness of an admissions secretary saw him through. God performs His will through the vicissitudes of life.
