Change of Heart: The Follow Up to the Facebook Challenge

Have you ever had a moment where you were just blown away by something God did? Something so unexpected yet incredible that you knew it was only Him?

I recently shared my story about a Facebook challenge that forced me to reexamine my relationship with my daughter’s dad. (CLICK HERE to check out The Facebook Challenge I Wanted to Ignore)

For weeks, I hesitated to complete the challenge.

Will he pick up my call and will it even make a difference?

What if I’m opening up myself to be hurt again?

Despite my efforts to shake off the challenge, I knew it was something I had to do.

The Facebook Challenge I Wanted to Ignore

It was a simple challenge on a friend’s page:

“Single mothers, call your children’s father and share with them one thing you appreciate about him as a father.”

I chuckled, sensing this wasn’t going to end well.

I knew my friend had good intentions. Being a single dad of three boys himself, he simply wanted to spark a healthy conversation to try to boost the image of fathers.

The responses however were not good.
