Somewhere in my youth, I remember being taught in Sunday School to use the talents God has given you. I try to do this and help wherever I see a need.
Family – education
My call story – helping those whoa re lonely and grieving. Just listing or whatever and anywhere else I see a need.
I was fishing with my husband. It was early in the morning. I was conflicted about whether we should try for a third child. I had already caught 4 fish and prayed – Lord, if I’m supposed to have another child, let me catch another fish. We fished for 4 more hours and I never caught another fish. But I wasn’t satisfied with that as an answer so I prayed for another, more specific sign. The next day, I went into a gas station with my 2 kids. A man I did not know came over to me, told me I had beautiful children and that 2 was the perfect number. He even told a story about being in church watching a woman with 3 kids and how she needed another hand. Then, I realized that 2 is the perfect number of kids. Jen Beier
