Mary, Did You Really Know?

Updated: Feb 19, 2021

I’m honored to be a guest blogger on Becky Beresford’s “Brave Women” series. During this holy season, one of the bravest women I know - Mary, the mother of Jesus - saw the fruition of her “yes” to God. I feel a special connection to Mary, so I wrote her a letter:


Dear Mary,

Your exalted story plays like a lovely loop in the background of my life, complete with music, lights, and a little chaos. I feel I know you better with each pass. But one Christmas Day boosted that link. We both gave birth on the same day. Well, yours was probably a different day, they say, but I had my first child on the day we celebrate, Christmas Day. Okay, maybe we aren’t that similar, but we both had a baby boy.

Nevertheless, I’m struck by your bravery facing this life-changing occasion.

Did you really understand the crazy sequence of events surrounding the birth of your first child? You talked to an angel! Gabriel, no less. Did that help?
