Children are a blessing!


I hope my example will encourage women who, like me, might be pregnant and left to their own devices, not knowing how to manage. This child is my greatest happiness in life.

Children are a blessing!

My life was full of problems. I wasn’t leading the life that I should have been leading: first a wedding blessed by the Church, then a sexual life together. I thought that those things I was seeing in all the films and colorful magazines were normal, and that it was okay to live like that. When things didn’t work out in my personal life, I blamed everything on God. Now I know that it was Jesus himself who was fighting for me to change my ways and get my life together.

Almost twenty years ago, I met a guy. I thought that we’d be together forever, and so I started sleeping with him. Then, when I found out I was pregnant, he encouraged me to get an abortion. I didn’t want to agree to it, so I kicked him out of the apartment, and our relationship fell apart. A short time later, I had an accident at work. My hair got caught in one of the machines, and it ripped it out along with part of my scalp. I looked horrible. At the time, the doctors recommended a hair graft, but only if I would consent to an abortion. Even under those circumstances, I refused.

Everything that was happening to me pushed me further away from the Church, and my resistance to God was constantly growing. Then, my mother asked me to go with her on a pilgrimage to Licheń and Częstochowa (in Poland). I agreed. I was three months pregnant, and I asked St Mary for health for the child, and perhaps just a little regrowth of my hair.

At that time, my father took me to the house of my ex-boyfriend’s family, hoping to persuade him to take care of me and our unborn baby, but he refused to concede. Besides that, his family expected that our baby would be born with some disease or mental incapacity because of my accident. However, nothing of the sort came about, and my daughter entered the world completely healthy. What’s more, before she was born, my hair grew back, despite the damage to the skin caused by the accident.

I never once regretted my decision to bring my daughter to term. I hope my example will encourage women who, like me, might be pregnant and left to their own devices, not knowing how to manage. This child is my greatest happiness in life. Looking at the way she’s growing and developing gave me and still gives me the greatest joy! My daughter is now eighteen years old, is studying well, and will soon take her high school final exams.

A few years ago, I met a priest who was an exorcist. I made my confession to him and he prayed over me for liberation from evil habits.He told me that in my situation, I had to break off all sexual relationships and begin living a chaste life. Thanks to Jesus and Mary, I was able to commit myself to his admonition, and ever since, I have been living a chaste life.

Now I know that when something is not working out for me, it’s actually something that’s good for me. God sometimes leads me down a different, indirect path to protect me from something evil

Aware of my own mistakes, I wanted to protect my daughter from doing the same. But it turned out to be difficult to convince her of the Church’s teachings. Unfortunately, I hadn’t given her a very good example in my own life. I had been involved with a number of different men. Once I was even involved with an atheist. As a result, my daughter didn’t have a very good example in her own mother, and she didn’t see me praying.

That exorcist priest recommended the magazine Love One Another! to us. At the beginning, my daughter treated it like one more Catholic magazine to leaf through quickly. After a while, however, she got so attracted to reading the magazine that now we have to make sure to buy every issue, and we read it from cover to cover. I find something through which Christ speaks to me personally in every issue.

I don’t have a husband, and I lead a chaste life. It was partially my choice. If I had remained pure, I could have had a husband. But I wanted something different: I wanted to do things my own way, although people warned me that it was not the right way. I’m so happy that my daughter appreciates the treasure of pre-marital purity. She reads the pages dedicated to the Movement of Pure Hearts in Love One Another! regularly and is thoroughly convinced to preserve her virginity for her marriage.

By writing this testimony, I wanted to tell everyone: trust Jesus!When something doesn’t work out, we have to come to terms with it, since we don’t know what God’s plan in it is. Before, when I had some problem, I told myself that it was because God wasn’t caring for me, that he wasn’t helping me. Now I know that when something is not working out for me, it’s actually something that’s good for me. God sometimes leads me down a different, indirect path to protect me from something evil.

To anyone who finds themselves in a difficult situation, I repeat: trust in Jesus and His Mother. They will never lead you astray!

The Lord Jesus told St Faustina: “My daughter, write that the greater the misery of a soul, the greater its right to My mercy; urge all souls to trust in the unfathomable abyss of My mercy, because I want to save them all. On the cross, the fountain of My mercy was opened wide by the lance for all souls – no one have I excluded! (St Faustina, Diary, 1182).
