I praise God for such an amazing interview. Lauren shares her story so openly and she’s very transparent. And this is what young ladies need to see. She’s such a fine example of what it means to see yourself as God see you. I believe God has a specific plan and purpose for each of us and He has placed skills, talents, potential and greatness inside to do what we thought we never could. And most definitely, we can rise above our past because we’re not defined by it. As we look to Jesus and maintain unshakeable faith in Him, we can move forward and be a vessel for Him to work thru. And I agree with Sherri McLean that young women need positive role models. Undoubtedly, that’s what Lauren is. Thanks Erin for a thorough and intriguing interview.
It’s nice to hear women of faith discuss issues impacting young women today. It’s important for young women to have positive role models. What a great inspiration Lauren Scruggs is! She is a very open and honest young lady and I enjoyed so much listening to her. Your connection to God was so refreshing. Erin, you did such a wonderful job leading the conversation!
