She married young and has since spent her efforts in nursing and hospice care loving and helping others.

Jordan's story is one of courage, faith, and the power of following the call of God, even if it means letting go of everything she's ever had or known.We are confident Jordan will inspire you! And stay tuned as Aligned Mommas follows Jordan and her family's journey ahead. May God bless and keep you Jordan and your family! May God work mightily through you!"And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am!

    36:12
    Join Samantha and Nikki as they continue their interview with Seth and Maddie Menne. You'll leave smiling, feeling inspired and encouraged to be more and do more while breath still remains in you! We are all called to a specific purpose and all are called to love others. Our hope is that next time you are tapped or feel the tug to say yes to God, that you say YES!Or, perhaps you don't know the Lord or have been walking away for some time, remember He is there with arms wide open, waiting for you to come home! Go! Go running back home!So he told them this parable: “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance."
