Elizabeth Smart Shares Her Story of Faith in Spite of Suffering

Elizabeth-Smart-Faith

Hey ladies, our faith is often tested as we each journey through life. And one of the most difficult times for even devoted Christians to remain faithful to our God is when something really bad happens. Many Christians have turned their back on their faith after tragedy has struck.

But then there are those Christians who hold on fast to their faith, even in the face of the most horrific circumstances.

This week’s Caught Being Godly story is about a young woman who endured and survived a horrific ordeal. Elizabeth Smart was 14 when she was kidnapped from her home. And for nine months she was abused beyond all imagination. It was certainly an experience that could have caused her to question God. But instead of feeling forsaken, she held onto the Truth that God loved her. And her faith prevailed.

Her faith not only helped her remain strong during her ordeal, but even afterward as she began the healing process. And today it continues to grow strong as she uses her experience to help in her endeavor to prevent predatory crimes.

Ladies, have you ever struggled in your faith during times of suffering?

    Her story moves me so much! I always feel horrible about abuse stories like this, they keep me up at night. I know God is always there, but awful situations like these still chill me to the bones..

    IK I’m risking a debate on here, but…. while I definitely agree that clinging to JESUS during times of distress can help you, and definitely agree w/ what Ms. Smart’s doing to help kids in crises like her own…. isn’t she a Mormon??

      Yes she is. A common misconception about Mormons is that Mormons aren’t Christian when the name of the church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Mormons are called Mormons because of the belief in The Book of Mormon which is another testament of Jesus Christ. I am Mormon and I find Elizabeth Smart’s story so faith building and I love Project Inspired because I am able to share my faith in Christ and God with other faithful and beautiful Daughters of God.
