Yesterday, Mandy Kelly (writer at Worshipful Living), along with her husband, daughter (pictured above) and baby boy, died in a terrible house fire. Mandy was our Good Morning Girls Leadership Coordinator and my friend since 2011.
I am heartbroken. Mandy loved God and others with every ounce of energy she had. She shined brightly for Jesus with boldness and courage! She helped me here with Good Morning Girls and was always there for me with anything I needed, day or night. Her enthusiasm to serve inspired me to keep going on days when I was weary. She listened and loved me and was not just a helper – but a true, loyal friend.
She is with Jesus now. I can’t wait to see that girls smile in heaven again. We have a great hope from our great God and that is what she always lived for.
Please keep her two children (Bekah and Jared) who have lost their parents and 2 siblings – in prayer.????????????

Mandy is forever in our hearts and her fingerprints are left all over this ministry. I am so thankful for the legacy of a life – well lived – that she has left for us. My heart is grieved but not without hope. I know one day we will be reunited in heaven – until then – Mandy is greatly missed.
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep.
~1 Thessalonians 4:13,14
