I am a Wiser! I am stronger! I am thankful!
I am Farrah Hodgson, a 37 year-old woman and single mother of 5 children – ages 19, 17, 10, 7 and 5. I did not plan for any of my children as they were all conceived out of wedlock, but I believe everything happens for a reason. I dropped out of high school when I was 16 which led to being around the wrong people, engaging in promiscuous behavior, partying, and getting into trouble because of all the extra time on my hands.
I was in an abusive relationship with the father of my first two children.
This experience intoxicated my life and I obtained multiple destructive characteristics in the process. As the years went by, I was in and out of bad relationships and continuously making bad decisions. At age 28, I knew I wanted a change. I got involved with church because I wanted to cleanse myself from all the negative behaviors instilled in me over the years.
I was unable to forgive all 3 of my children’s fathers until I understood God’s will for my life. God showed me many things - most importantly unconditional love and stability. God became the father to me that I never had as well as to my children. As I gain self-worth and practice obedience, I apply it to both my life as well as my children’s lives. My walk with Christ has endured many trials but it has nonetheless strengthened me, helped me to gain many positive characteristics and to experience a great turn around in my life at this point in 2016.
Farrah Hodgson is an author of many books including, Pain 2 Passion, Baggage To Blessings, Confessions of a Single Mother, and Sweet Success Sisters.
