Nothing Went as Planned, Yet She Thrives | Alaina Mayes | Ep. 104 Kindled Podcast | Truth and Grace, Boldly

    • Christianity

You're going to love my friend Alaina. 
She is smart, beautiful and a great mother of three. But more than all that, she is resilient because she is anchored in a God who has and is redeeming her and her story. 
Most might have been tempted to title this episode by the things that the world might say marks and even scars Alaina's life - infertility, infidelity, divorce, single mother of three, working mom.
But when you place your identity in a source outside yourself and your circumstances, those things lose their power to make you anything - for better or worse. These things that have happened to her have not defined her. They have not made her who she is, but rather have been the catalyst for her to lean harder into her savior.
And her attitude is not just a show - it's a choice she's made. Her commitment to her girls is not an obligation, it's the delight of her life. Her resilience is not just a show for Instagram, it's something she is modeling in her real life. 
Nothing went as planned, yet she thrives.
