At 18 weeks, Maria was told her son’s kidneys and lungs would not develop properly enough to live outside the womb. She shares the story of deciding to carry the baby to term, overcoming her fears and finding peace.
At the age of 35, Maria Furlough’s feeling insecure about what everyone else thinks is finally busted. All the worrying, the insecurity, in confidence, fear, and the tiny lies that once consumed her – those things are gone. And it feels good. Once upon a time she was a woman who sat fearful, crippled by insecurities and only tiptoeing into the call that God had upon her life. Then Gideon came, and God used that little baby to change her from the inside out.
Today Maria is a wife, a mother of five, the team lead of women’s ministry at Lake Forest Church in Huntersville, North Carolina, and author of the book Breaking the Fear Cycle. She has been writing and teaching Bible studies for 14 years and you can find her at www.mariafurlough.com.
