My name is Rebecca Theriaque. I’m your new Legacy Partner Manager, and I wanted to share a bit of my story with you as we get to know each other.
As a child, my life was tumultuous. My parents divorced when I was young, and my family lived below poverty level. When I was a teenager, family friends took me in and introduced me to the Lord. But as a young adult, I walked far from Him.
Yet through a series of losses (ovarian cancer and resulting treatments; loss of my mother, grandfather, and uncle) and blessing (the birth of my son!), God’s plans have always exceeded my own.
Devastated after the deaths in my family, I sat in the very last pew of a church, gazing at the tall Colonial windows. Crying, I muttered to my friend that this place oddly felt like home. With a giant smile, he laughed. “That’s God telling you where you belong.”
The following year, I resubmitted my life to Christ. For the first time in my life, I found my true home … and a peace I’d never experienced.
His kindness deserves to be told, to be replayed in the lives of family and community. I began to find new ways to dedicate my life to His service. I started working in nonprofit, and this year, felt God leading me to FamilyLife.
My own story of family struggles and becoming a mother myself compels me to love others and help them strengthen their relationships at home. And in my new role working with our Legacy Partners, I want to hear your story, too.
Will you share with me what God’s done for you? How has FamilyLife been a part of your journey with God?
