Everyone is on a spiritual journey, whether they acknowledge it or not.
Everyone, at one point in life, hits a roadblock of suffering and pain. When that happens, a choice appears: to allow hardship to make you bitter or to allow it to make you better. Mary Kay came to such a junction the moment she discovered her vibrant nine-year-old daughter, Katie, had been diagnosed with cancer. Would Mary Kay allow this disease to destroy her family and her faith, or would she use this tragedy to rise and seek God for answers?
Truth enlightened their journey. Peace was found in the center of chaos. Joy overflowed amid sadness. Discovering life—while fighting death—opened their eyes to purpose. What was that purpose? To use their “dash” for God’s glory. Each of us is given specific days on earth: the day of our birth, the day of our death, and the “dash” of the days in between. As the mother-and-daughter duo continue to endure this uphill battle, in faith, they use their “dash” to know God and to make Him known, which allows miracles and adventures to unfold.
