Faith Saver: A Young Girl and Her Dolls Inspired an Entire Town

    “Faith Savers” remind us that there is a God and He has a plan for all of us. They also remind us that even in times of pain and heartache, a light shines for us. We need faith to keep our eyes on God. When we look to God, we realize He is bigger than all those fears and challenges that we face.

    The following story is a perfect example of a person who has amazing faith and who stays strong, even in the midst of adversity.

    Arriel hasn’t given up, even as she deals with her illness. Instead, she wants to find a way to keep her family financially secure and works hard to support them.

    Ladies, a faith saver strengthens a person’s faith, not only in humanity, but particularly in God. Was your faith strengthened by this story? Why?

    1. Sometimes I feel like why do I need keep going? Why must I keep fighting this battle. I’m not strong enough for all this. A 14 year old can’t shoulder all these burdens. BUT (thank God for the Buts) When Jesus carried the cross on His bloody, beaten, bare and bruised back He kept going. I will keep fighting this battle because God gave me the empowerment to do so. These burdens can’t compare to how great my God is. I may have mighty struggles but I have a ALMIGHTY God. Not only that but through Christ I can do all things because he strengthens me. So was my faith strengthened by this story? OF COURSE <3

    2. Just remember that there is ALWAYS someone out there worse off than you.So be greatful,even in the hardest of times. Also remember the words of our Savior:”I am with you ALWAYS,even unto the end of the world.” (Matthew 28:20)

    3. Wow, what a beautiful, optimistic and kind hearted soul Ariel is. She is so brave, and inspires ME to try harder to please God and share His kingdom! God bless her and her family. 🙂 Thanks T.M for such a special story!

    4. These stories are so inspiring! They’re one of my favorite articles that you guys do Some fothe articles just make me wonder if you guys have too much time or your hands, but these honestly do brighten my day. In a world where so much of the news is about tragedy, heartache, and bad stuff, it’s amazing to see when the news is able to actually report on love that some family or town spread with their generosity. Be sure to keep doing these!
