The author of the new book Bomb Pops, Blow Dryers, & Butterfly Kisses, opens her heart to Simple Grace about how the Lord helped her through her darkest time
Angelia Waite never could have imagined that the most tragic and heartbreaking time in her life could lead to some of the most beautiful blessings. “Experiencing the drowning of my 3½-year-old son caused God to be revealed in a deeper, more tangible way in my life,” she reveals.
“There was an intimacy that occurred that day in May that would continue for the following 18 months and has never been duplicated. Not only did I experience His love at a depth that I never knew existed, I also received a greater understanding of the faithfulness of God.”
It was during this time, Angelia says, that she also began to see God all around her. “People from all walks of life suddenly looked like, spoke like and acted like Him unlike I had ever experienced,” she describes. “I was confident that God was always near and that He had my heart in His hands.”
