God’s Grace

God has shown me so much grace, even though I’m undeserving, and because of that I want to be the salt; just as God calls us to be. I would love for you to join me on the adventures of my life as I learn to be a military wife while struggling with cystic fibrosis.

In 1994 my parents found out they were expecting. Nine months later, I was born blue and purple, and not breathing. I was immediately life-flighted to a better hospital. My parents were told I wouldn’t survive through the flight, but God had other plans. After three months in the NICU, I was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF).

CF is a life-threatening illness that affects the lungs and pancreas. CF causes our lungs to develop infections while our pancreas doesn’t digest food properly. People with CF spend hours a day just doing treatments. Despite the many treatments and infections, I lived a healthy (considering) and happy childhood.

God shown my family grace, even though we are sinners and undeserving. Twenty years later, He is still showing us grace. Come back here February 4th for more of my testimony. 

Xoxo – Em

  1. Em! I remember shortly after you were born, praying for you in our little church at Gum Springs Baptist church. Even though I didn’t know you or your parents at the time. However later in life, GOD did provide an opportunity for me to get to know you and your wonderful family. You were placed in GOD’S hands from day 1. I will always remember the road trips to football games. You are forever in my thoughts and prayers. Love you Mrs. Emily Shellman#
