On January 17, 1950, an innocent baby girl was brought into our sinful world, unsuspecting and unaware of the generational strongholds she had just inherited.

By the age of 15, she had given birth to–and given up for adoption–her first baby. Trying to fill the void left by a mother who couldn’t provide emotionally and an absent (but abusive) father, this little girl grew into a woman with such incredibly deep scars that only One could heal. Doing her best to survive in this world on her own, and with the best intentions (at least that’s what she felt at the time), she continued down a painful and broken path that would only lead her to her rock bottom, over 20 years after she gave birth to her first baby. In her wake, she left a trail of broken relationships, unwanted pregnancies and a web of deception that threatened to entangle her and everything she loved.

By the time she had reached her rock bottom, her nearly-grown daughters were beginning to follow in her footsteps and her husband had decided to file for divorce. What happened next was something that can only be described as the grace of God.

That little girl’s name was Kathy and her incredible story of redemption is far from ordinary. Like every other human being on the planet, she tried to cover up sins and move on, hoping they would disappear. Proverbs 28:13 says, “Whoever covers up his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy.” (ESV) She, like many of us, learned that the hard way, over and over again. And then she was delivered.
