“I am constantly in awe of God’s amazing grace — how He can take the shattered pieces of a broken life and make them whole. You see, He did that for me.
My name is Chelsea, and I am honored to personally represent God’s goodness and grace in the pages of the Designed for Life 2016 brochure… because I am a miracle!
I was not raised in a home where God’s love was demonstrated. In fact, it was just the opposite. I grew up without a mother and father and bounced around from home to home, basically homeless. I was the product of drug abuse and prostitution . . .
“My life was one big mess. I was a mean, selfish person whom everyone did their best to avoid. I had no friends and didn’t care – at least that’s what I told myself.
Then, last year, I was invited to Designed for Life. Why I went, I will never know. I did not understand what I was there for. Although I had heard about God and even decided to try and follow Him, I was not where I needed to be in my relationship with Him. To me, serving God felt like a chore, like a list of do’s and don’ts that I would never be able to live up to.
