Samantha, 30 years old

Name: Samantha, 30 years old
Submitted by: A friend
Location: Crystal Lake, IL
What's going on?: Sam is recently married and her father in law just passed a few months ago. It has been tough on the family. In addition, she has been in and out of jobs for the past few months and isn't sure what's next for her. She knows God has given her many talents to work with kids, but she keeps applying/getting jobs and then they don't work out. I know she's disheartened and I want to remind her who she is!
What do you love most about this girl?:  Sam has a huge heart and has a passion for bringing kids closer to Christ. She coaches soccer, has started small groups with young women, and used to be a teacher. She is supportive, funny, loves baseball and music, and is just struggling to find her path right now. She is thoughtful and loving and makes great connections with people.
Anything else you want to tell us? She loves God and is trying to discern what His plan is for her. I know it can't be easy so I want to encourage her that she's right where she needs to be and to keep her spirits up!

She is thoughtful, always writing handwritten notes to family and friends and sending us drawings and pictures of her kids in the mail. She is generous, supportive and a fantastic mom. I just want her to know how amazing she is and that even in these circumstances, she's being the best mom and that she is worthy and loved.
Anything else you want to tell us? She is faith based and I want to remind her that God is with her and giving her peace and strength!

Brooke, 27 years old

Name: Brooke, 27 years old
Submitted by:  Herself
Location: Grand Rapids. MI
What's going on?: , I struggle with depression and social anxiety. I am an introverted extrovert and suffer from chronic pain as well. I was in a car accident that took away my love for staying active daily due to the pain. Because I have pain every day, it took my ability away to do the things I love. Living with the pain everyday has made my depression worse and has caused me to lose the confidence I took so long to finally get. My motivation and determination have been hindered due to this and I feel lost in life. Encouragement would be needed.
What do you love most about this girl?: I’m compassionate about life and my job, working with children. I strive to support others and be a positive light in other’s lives and spread positivity wherever I go!

Submitted by: Her roommate
Location: Mt Berry, GA
What's going on?: She’s an amazing and strong girl who loves God and would really appreciate people praying for her. Earlier this year she began suffering from serious migraines on a frequent basis and she also discovered she is allergic to gluten as well as many other things that make her life harder. Most of her friends, and her boyfriend, are a year older than her and so they will be graduating and she’ll be more or less alone for a year at school and she’s really worried about that.
What do you love most about this girl?: She is so wonderful and caring and selfless. She is an amazing singer and she’s going to become a fantastic PA one day. She is beautiful and strong and she is always there for anyone who needs it, she has been a great comfort to me as I’ve gone through hard times. She’s so smart and loved.
Anything else you want to tell us? She would really appreciate knowing that people are praying for her and she loves Jesus.

She has a wonderful husband who loves and supports her, but hearing from others would definitely be an extra boost.

Anything else you want to tell us? This girl is a support for so many people and I want her to feel that love and support too.
