I have 3 adopted kids with mild to moderate disabilities. They are attending an amazing school that’s a true blessing, a true gift to all the 150 students, each one with disabilities. On many occasions after dropping off my children at school, I will pass Calgary Access buses lined up in front of the school delivering children in wheel chairs and varying needs with School Staff greeting and assisting with open arms. Each student requires supports in one way or another and l tear up with an overwhelming joy at how much God loves all his children, with or without disabilities. Blameless children He truly blesses and cares for, through a school that supports, cares, teaches, protects, nurtures, a school that showers each child with His love. Each staff member are His hands, His smile, His heart.
I pray that every child, no matter what their abilities are, knows His love and that they are loved.

12 years ago, I gave birth to my miracle babies. They were born 3 1/2 months early and weighed almost 1.5 lbs each. The doctors told us that they only had a 50% chance of survival. They stayed at the NICU for 4 months where they had multiple surgeries (eyes, heart, stomach, etc). During those times, we were also struggling financially but God was with us the whole time. Now, our twins are healthy, strong and very smart. You wouldn’t even know that they were premature babies. To God be the glory!
The Martin Family
I have a miracle about our cat. Her name is Charlee, she had ran off for over 50 days. Someone found her in their backyard, we got a call from the veterinarians on Thanksgiving eve. She was skinny but very snuggly. We hope she is very healthy. We want to thank God and Jesus for answering our prayers and thanks to the woman who found our cat!
I got saved in March of this year. With the world living in fear of Covid, it really got me depressed and scared. Nobody had any answers – nobody could tell me things were going to be ‘ok.’ My mom encouraged me to pick up my Bible that was collecting dust and read it – so I did. Within 3 days I gave my life to God and have found comfort, peace & rest in Him. I live my life for Him everyday and always pray that he will ‘Lead me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.’ God Bless.
I used to be a pretty big country music fan. Then one day I heard should’ve been me by Citizen Way, and I totally flipped!!! I deleted every country song I had and started from scratch with Christian music! Now when I listen to the radio, it’s on shine fm.
A few years back I was feeling like I was unloved or always the problem for people. I am a teenager and that’s usually when most of the extreme ups and downs happen in life and so I felt like I should just gather up my things and run away, never to come back. I felt so ashamed because of all my sins and regrets, I felt like I should feel like I was loved and blessed with this wonderful family and all these different things we had, but I just wanted to stay in this place of self-pity. At that time I was folding clothes and while I was thinking of these things something caught my eye: The words ‘You belong here’. I was kind of shocked to see that and I wouldn’t have if I hadn’t folded that shirt the way I had, for the words were on the shoulder of the shirt. But being so caught up in my own emotions I thought little of it and continued folding. Then the words popped up again (we had two of the same shirt) I definitely knew that this was no coincidence and realized that it wasn’t the shirt that was saying those words, it was God, encouraging me to keep going forward, to keep running the race, to keep loving and serving even when life seemed unfair. Peace and awe came to my soul at that very minute, and so I continue on!
I was driving home from shopping for groceries on a sunny morning back in June of this year. I was listening to Shine FM like I always do, and heard a song that I hadn’t heard before! It made such a huge impact on me, that I looked it up as soon as I got home, and literally could not stop listening to it and singing it for the rest of the day, cementing the words and message in my heart! I had no idea this song was God-sent, until that very same night when my husband and I were awakened at 2:30 am by a phone call….the kind you never want to get. My brother called from the hospital in Abbotsford where he and my mom were waiting to hear from the doctors who were trying to revive my father who had been rushed to the hospital in an ambulance, unresponsive, after suffering a deadly heart attack. As I laid in bed trying to process the information I had just heard….suddenly the words to that song, the one I had listened to all day, (Peace Be Still by Hope Darst) came to me, in the painful silence, as if God Himself were whispering those very words to me…..”Peace, be still, You are here so it is well….even when my eyes can’t see, I will trust the voice that speaks Peace over me….” I was truly overwhelmed by this very tangible reminder and gift of God’s presence to me in the midst of my storm.
