Cradle My Heart Today | Chelsea’s story 3-30-17
Chelsea Patterson celebrates each birthday with two women in mind.
She shared her story recently at gospelcoalition.com:
Born out of wedlock to a poor teenager in Eastern Europe, Chelsea says, “The terrified young woman who gave me life is my hero. She made a courageous choice to be my mother, even if it meant she could only remain in the role for a few days. The only tie she will ever have to me is her blood and her genes.”
She also pays tribute to her equally heroic mother, who Chelsea says, “Stepped into my life and made me her permanent daughter.”
The loving choices these women made will affect her life forever.
Chelsea’s passion is to abolish abortion, yes, but by wielding love and compassion, capturing the hearts and minds of individuals all around us.
Angry rhetoric drives others away; judgment defeats our purpose. When we speak the truth in love we leave room for God’s persuasive grace.
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. John 13: 34-35
