When Lacy was young, she went to church out of obligation. In adulthood, she attended to be surrounded by joy. As she watched others worship and witnessed their love for the Lord, she became captivated; however, she thought that this sacred relationship was unattainable for her. Church was for “those people,” not someone with such a broken past. Lacy carried many burdens with her whenever she walked through church doors. After experiencing divorce, struggling through single motherhood, and ending a pregnancy, she believed that God had forgotten about her. And if He had given up on her, she felt she had no choice but to forget about Him.
