When I was only 14 years old my mom had to have a biopsy on one of her breast. I was a bit confused at what a biopsy was used to determine. Thus, my mom sat me down and explained it all to me. What I remember most when she talked was the courage in her voice, the strength in her words and the comfort in her touch. It was like I was the one headed for the biopsy because she was so fearless. Fortunately, after the procedure, the results indicated that no cancer was present. However, I asked my mom was she ever afraid. She responded that she was fearless only because she trusts God. My mom is Pink!

No matter our struggles God said in Philippians 4:13, that we are powerful through Him: I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. (KJV)
I praise Your name for Your grace and mercy that You give me daily. Help me to trust You and lean more on You. I know Pink is just a color but what it represents gives me hope. No matter my life struggles, I pray that I never give up. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
As we continue EMPOWERING women through knowledge during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I EMPOWER you to thrive, love, and survive! I EMPOWER you to boldly face your life challenges because we are all Pink!
