Journey


Who wouldn’t do what we did? When your child is sick what parent wouldn’t go to the ends of the earth to find the best medical care despite the cost? That was our journey 2 1/2 years ago. An emergency appendectomy was just the beginning of the long very expensive series of symptoms that lead to a diagnosis of Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH). After praising Jesus that it was treatable we were transferred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. So thankful for St. Jude’s we started raising money because we knew how much we’d spent before transferring there and thankful that St. Jude’s accepts only what our insurance paid. I’d still get the Explanation of Benefits from our insurance company but we’d never get a bill from St. Jude’s.
 Almost a year ago we were praying for a way to pay the mountain of medical bills we faced in the six months searching for a diagnosis in three different children’s hospitals in three different states. God answered our prayers. A sweet friend talked to me about ItWorks! She’s a southern momma like me though a bit younger. We had faith and family in common. 

 I’d heard about ItWorks once before on a flight from Orlando four months before our medical journey. Honestly, I thought it sounded too good to be true. The girl sitting next to me on that flight was building her dream home in Missouri after a fire and had just taken her family to Disney. I was so closed minded. I mean I had a Ph.D. a good job and no debt (other than our mortgage). Well God soften my heart. I can’t tell what a blessing ItWorks has been for my family. The products have changed our lives and our health. The friendships are more than I ever dreamed. Feeling so alone during these trials I prayed that God would surround me with Godly women. So I’m thinking I will get a few prayer partners in my tiny town. Well you our God is a BIG GOD! He surrounded me with Godly women from around the Globe 🌏. I have prayer warriors around the world! 🙌🏻

So as a shy introvert today I share a bit more of my heart feeling lead by the Lord. 
So friends I’d love to pray with you and help you anyway I can. My prayer from Day 1 with ItWorks has been to help people spiritually, physically, and financially for His Glory 🙌🏻
💗,

Julie
