my sister suggested I look up the story of Gloria Polo.
For those of you looking for God, this is the most moving story I have ever heard.
She was struck by lightning. Came back to life. A miraculous story that had me in tears from start to finish. This was a woman who was peocuppied with vanity and appearances. She had a miracle pregancy, but the epiphanies she talks about may be of help to many of my friends on here. Please watch it all. It is extremely moving.
My 16yr old had a little heart to heart with me last week about how she knows that when she decides to have sex she will be able to come to me and tell me about her feelings and experiences. GULP! Got me a bit worried TBH but I tried to get her to see that waiting until she is of legal age is advisable. Talked bout STDs etc and importance of being in loving relationship. Asked her to watch Gloria Polo.She chose to read 50page article.Cried a lot.Hope that she will come n talk to me bout sex again soon.
I would never force my beliefs on anyone but this woman's testimony has really affected me profoundly. I am blown away by what it is doing to me and those around me. Finding out about this disease and getting into recovery- and now this- have given me the means to move forward in life. Only God has all the answers for me. Gloria's story of faulty parental teaching, the harm we cause ourselves and others...all my q's being answered by her and by certain posts on this board.thanx for helping me to grow!
I'm reading this bit by bit and everytime i pick it up i get a profound feeling that is challenging me inspiring me and scaring me all at the same time. I think i may become an advocate like you too but i'll let you know once i've finished it as i'm about two thirds through at the mo. Thank you for sharing this!
