Truly Inspiring . . .


On Wednesday I watched Oprah. Today I am a different person.

Stephanie Clark-Nielson, a fellow blogger who can be found here, was a guest on Oprah's show along with her husband Christian. For those of you who haven't heard of Nie Nie or have never visited her blog please go visit it now to read about her remarkable and miraculous journey that she's been on since last August when she, Christian and their pilot/friend were in a horrific plane crash.

You can also go to Oprah.com to see an incredible video of a young mother who has been having a difficult time finding joy in being a stay-at-home mom and how spending a day with Nie Nie and her family has changed that for her.
This truly was a life-changing show for me.


Amazing Grace at its finest.



Many blessings ~ Wendy

Thank you for sharing. I hope to catch this when it finally comes on over here. We're months behind with Oprah, and I am not a regular viewer... I can't believe it's been over a year already. She's amazing.

I saw that, which is unusal since I don't usually watch Oprah. I was blessed by her story! It certainly helps me to refocus my priorities and puts a whole lot of stuff in perspective.

Oh NieNie! I have followed her recovery blog and she is such a hero isn't she? So is her husband and family.Their Faith and Love of The Lord is so amazing.
I think she's even more beautiful than before.

I would so love to be able to see that episode. Here in Australia we can watch on Foxtel but it is older episodes. I have no idea when it will air here? I have followed her story through CJane over the last year. An amazing family....

Hi Wendy,
Oh....I'm up in our mountain cabin a few hours north of where I live taking in the beautiful fall colors. I have not heard the story you featured but could almost feel "the spirit" of what's there start melting my heart. I'm going to check it out, with a big box of tissues, when I get home. These types of people, who take the worst and turn it into something that inspires in life-changing ways are truly God's messengers.

Thanks for stopping by and for posting such inspiration!
