Tabetha’s Story

Posted on by Laura Green

Tabetha was a typical student in our ministry a few years ago. I recently had the opportunity to catch up with her and see what path life has taken. In high school, Tabetha found herself pregnant at 17. She thought her life was over. But she was encouraged to check out the Parent Life (Teen Moms) program at her school. There she met YFC staff who not only taught her how to be a mom but they listened to Tabetha and loved her like she had never really experienced. Intrigued by their honesty and love for her she continued to be a regular in the Parent Life meetings and even came to the Bible Study that was offered. But she also made it clear to everyone that she was not interested in any of “this God stuff.” Weeks and months passed and her relationship with our team deepened. God began to work in her heart. It took over two years but Tabetha finally realized her need for Jesus. She accepted His offer of forgiveness and life changed dramatically. Tabetha says she would have never finished school without the YFC/Parent Life staff.  She has no idea where life would have taken her. But she can now see God’s blessing in her life. Tabetha is now married, has two beautiful girls and a career that looks promising.  “It all began to change when I walked through the doors of Parent Life.”
