    Wow! Your courage and grit is apparent! I am so happy you chose to be strong and push through your storm so others can continue to be inspired by your rainbows! ❤

  2. Wendy Wallace

    Wow, Gerald. I could feel the positive mindset through reading your story. We don’t always understand God’s plan. But if we’re faithful to what He asks of us, He will open doors for us that we cannot imagine. I’m sorry for your struggles. It would’ve been easy to give up. But I’m so thankful you didn’t.

  3. Val Smith

    Oh my, what faith Gerald to hang on in there during such tragic circumstances.
    Encourages me to keep pressing into God and know more of his heart.
    Thank you for sharing Gerald.
    Wonderful to hear God transformed and restored you!

  4. Jean Rogers

    Your story is a real blessing for everyone. You experienced first hand how God is always faithful. Thank you for your commitment to think of others even when you were hurting with your own personal difficulties.
    May God continue to bless you as you encourage others along their life journeys.

    Gerald! Your story was just what I needed to hear today. Some think it’s strange, but Job is one of my favorite books in the Bible. Thank you for sharing your story.

  7. Staci Diffendaffer

    What a hard thing to go through. It’s amazing to see how God has turned everything around. I can see how you were firmly planted in knowing your true identity in God. Truly an inspiring story!

  8. Stacey Siekman

    What a fantastic testimony to the power of God! Your love for the Lord showed in every single step of the way! I can’t imagine what you must have been feeling during all of this–especially with it being so public. What I do know is that God was present in it all. HE used all the pieces for HIS good! You stayed faithful and HE answered in HIS glorious ways!
    Thank you for sharing!!
