1. Jolene, I just wanted to say I really appreciated what you and your husband had to say in this video. You know this subject is near and dear to my heart as well. I shared it on my FB page and with my private UnEmployed Faith support group. I just know many women will be blessed by the truth spoken in this video.

    It’s funny – now that unemployment is behind us, I often struggle to recall the pain and suffering we felt during those tough years. I should rephrase that. I remember the pain and the suffering. I don’t remember the feeling. Sort of like childbirth. The pain of labor is excruciating, but then that beautiful miracle is in your arms and you can’t even remember the pain you went through to get the blessing. Such is the unemployment story for me and my husband. God brought so much beauty (and an even stronger marriage now) out of our pain that it’s almost hard to remember it. And I know now that it was necessary for me to be where I’m at now in my faith and in the kingdom work I’m doing. 🙂

    1. Thanks Rosann. Yes, you and I have walked similar paths. And yes, the unemployment season can feel like the pain of childbirth and then you forget about it. Although since I’m married to a self-employed man, I visit this season often! 🙂 God is always faithful no matter what we go through. He uses the trials to strengthen us and draw us closer to Him. He’s got a purpose for the pain. Thanks for sharing this with your gals. I pray it ministers to them.
