What message would you like readers to take away from your story?

I’m hoping others will see that nothing is impossible when God is involved. The beginning of this story was the death of my mother, the end of my marriage, living out of my car and recovering from a collapsed lung. On their own, it seems terrible, but it shows God has a plan for each of us and can make great things happen out of bad situations. Finally, I hope this run encourages people to make time for God in their daily lives and to pray for not only their own needs, but for everyone around them.
