My friend, Sarah Palin!

I Love Sarah Palin!  I was able to meet her and have a memorable conversation with her at the Republican Governor's event that Johnny and I attended with the Perdues back in February.  I left her thinking what a likeable, smart, impressive, cute, extremely friendly lady she was!  When I returned from Washington, I was so impressed with her that I did some research on my own and was still intrigued by her.  When the announcement was made that she would be the running mate, I literally screamed!!!!  I am hitting the campaign trail!!!  Great choice, Senator McCain!   She is a devoted Christian and very much pro-life.  It is disappointing to find out that her 17 year old daughter, Bristol, is pregnant.  As we know, these untimely things happen even in Christian homes.  We really need to more even more fervently pray for the Palin Family during this time and wait and see what the Lord is going to do in and through their family who definitely has the ear of the world at this time!

While Bristol is in fact pregnant, I too have been there and had the peace in knowing God knew better than I. Griffin was an absolute gift from the Lord. And me getting pregnant was a blessing. It changed my life dramatically. I wouldn't trade the stares and whispers I received for anything in this world. As you know, I got married to Phillip and we know have three beautiful children. God is in the midst of it all.
It was wonderful to see you on Wednesday. Annalee loved you! (She told me so)

In our finite minds it is difficult to think of good coming from an unfortunate situation...like being pregnant at 17.
However, the Lord has planned our steps and ALL things are for HIS glory!
I could never have imagined the blessings that would come into our lives as a result of my sin...getting pregnant at 17.
He has used the whole situation for His glory for 12 years now! My experience has open doors for me to tell others about Christ and to help others who are hurting and in similar situations.

Bristol's sin has been shouted from the rooftops...as mine was...and this will be used by God in a way that we cannot even fathom.

All things work together for good to those who are called according to HIS purpose... :)

And had that not happened I would not have married my wonderful Josiah and we would not have our fabulous 5 boyz! :)

Come on Mrs. Janet let's hit the campaign trail!!! I have practically been a Palin stalker since her first speech. I didn't know anything about her before McCain picked her but I have followed her and researched like crazy since then! :) It's so awesome to see her stand on her foundation in Christ and lead so effectively and contagiously. I am super jealous you've gotten to meet her... maybe one day! :)
Love you!
