God is Sovereign. He is undoubtedly in control of every situation. And as my pastor says, “Obedience is a Christian’s safety net”. When we are obedient to everything the Lord has called us to do, then we can rest assured that He sees the big picture and is guiding us into everything He has called us to for His glory and for our own good.

You could not have told us even 6 months ago that we would be in the position we are in now. We have had life changing event after life changing event over the last several years, but increasingly the last few months.

My husband’s desire to become a US citizen and his conviction to get us off all government assistance was the beginning. His dream of owning a house was another challenge that we took on and accomplished. Then he wanted to put himself through school and learn a trade: HVAC. After that, he had a dream to start his own business which he did in February and has been tremendously successful. 

Equally, our decision to step out in a new ministry of “politics” was a large step of faith a year ago. We stepped down from all the ministries we were comfortable in and had excelled in from worship ministry, to home fellowship leaders, and leading other various ministries. We had no idea what we were doing, but we attended many rallies, protests, committee meetings, and visited many office holding officials and talked with many people from all walks of lives about their convictions and concerns. The connects we made along the way were God ordained and the lessons we learned were and still are bigger then what we can wrap our minds around.

This year of 2020 seems to be the most accelerated year of our lives. We welcomed our 7th child, Willow, into the family, became self employed, are selling our home and moved into our church owned coffee house to manage it. 

Now, the Lord has led my husband to step into what he believes the Lord has been preparing him for his whole life. 

He is running for MN Senate. 

In our country and our state, humanity is in complete upheaval. My heart breaks that the freedoms and peace and security I taught my children about last fall is in such deep jeopardy. I am broken that Americans are no longer uniting after their common heritage, a heritage that is chosen and not passed down: being an American.

Americans are not black, white or brown. 

Americans are free.

They are hard working.

They respect everyone because they all created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

When America was founded, the historian Tocqueville mentioned that only in America are even the lowly waiters called “sir”.

Pray for my husband. 

Pray for our family.

The Holy Spirit is moving in His people and He wants to do a great work. The enemy and his satanic forces are also moving in his. There is a great battle ahead, but we are fighting from victory already and our conviction is to stand for the God given freedoms we have been bestowed to in this remarkable country, or die trying. America is the world’s hope. It is the first and last country of it’s kind.
