Short Creek Community

I remember the days when the Short Creek community was flourishing. We wanted to live our lives and beliefs in peace.

We were told by everyone we trusted to fear the outside world. We were told they were the enemy. People outside of the community wanted to destroy us and break up our families. It was because of “religious persecution.”

We should have stood against those who sat in front of us, telling us these things. They are the ones that overshadowed our community and destroyed our families.

Now who are the ones opening their hearts unconditionally, welcoming us into their lives, taking us in as their own? Adopting our children when their own parents turn their backs on them? They are the ones who do not judge. It’s those people who are trying to help us glue our families back together as much as possible.

It’s beautiful to see people, women, men, standing up for what they believe in, no matter what it might be. Women for the first time in that community standing up, earning their own power and voice! The very definition of strength. You Rock On!

I can never be grateful enough, or ever repay the unconditional love of new friends and families, the communities that welcome us, supporting me and my family, showing us what the true love of Christ is.

feeling thankful.
