In early December, I asked God to use me in his work. This was the first time I did so with any conviction. The next day, I met Jennifer, a 29-year-old mother of two. Jennifer shared her story, told me of her illness, and of her fear that she may be celebrating her last Christmas. Moments later the idea had returned and Let There Be Mom was born again in my head.
I have repeatedly checked this assignment with God and repeatedly, He has confirmed it with me. It was with Him by my side and Jennifer on my mind that I began this journey in January 2007.
I hope that Let There Be Mom touches many lives. Whether you are a healthy parent, or one battling an illness, we are all only here for a short time. Moms, Dads, treasure the moments you have, pass on traditions, and make a record of what you can, because one day, they won’t be able to ask you for your famous double chocolate, peanut butter, chunk cookie recipe.
