It's not often that I unleash my inner Anne of Green Gables and say that I've found a Kindred Spirit, and even less often that I would say so about someone I don't even know...someone out in the world wide blogosphere. But there is one out there and her name is Chantelle. Post after post after post that she writes, I find my own feelings, struggles and passions written in the most compelling, beautiful ways. I want to be her if I ever grow up.
I don't know how in the world I first found her, but I remember vividly the first time that she shook me to the core of my being. It was in a video where she in a very simple, brief way cut painfully through a lie that I had believed about the world without ever knowing it. That lie or set of lies I should say, was about HIV/AIDS. You name the lie about that disease, and I probably held it as a dogma.....but it was dogma from the Pit. And it shames and angers me every time I think about it. I'm so thankful that God used her to defeat the Enemy's hold on that portion of my mind.
This is my shout-out to a woman who changes lives: Thank you, Chantelle!
