A Birth Mom’s Story – 20 Years Later

For You From The Word

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him.
(Jeremiah 17:7)

For You To Think About

Lee Ezzell

Lee Ezzell

Lee Ezell accepted Christ at a 1961 Billy Graham crusade. Shortly afterwards, she escaped her abusive upbringing in Philadelphia and made her way to California for a fresh start.

Then a work colleague raped her, and Lee became pregnant.

Her circumstances were a deep test for Lee’s fledging faith. Family members and friends urged her to terminate her pregnancy. But the scriptures confronted Lee with God’s ability to create and sustain life, and she couldn’t bring herself to abort the baby. Instead, she placed her child for adoption, trusting God completely that He had a plan.

More than 20 years later, Lee’s phone rang. Her birth daughter introduced herself. “I want you to know you are a grandmother,” said the young woman, telling Lee about her marriage and child. And then the young woman presented Christ to Lee.

“Thank you for sharing about the Lord, honey,” said Lee. “But you already led me to a deeper walk with Jesus – when I carried you.”

For You To Pray

Gracious Father,
You promise blessing when we trust You. Help pregnant women trust You with their babies’ lives. Lead them to a deeper walk with You. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
