Pam Tebow offers hope to those facing challenges

The original title of the following piece was "Pam Tebow offers hope to women facing challenges," but seeing that every week has been been fraught with its own drama for the Gator nation this season, we thought it might be nice to see what word's of wisdom Tebow's mom has to offer others in need.

Talking to more than 800 women gathered at Idlewild Baptist Church in Lutz for an October outreach event, Tebow told them how finding hope in God’s Word has become a way of life for her.

As the mother of five and grandmother of two, Tebow has had many opportunities to trust God amidst fear and pain.

Recalling life as a young mother and missionary in the war-torn Philippines in the mid-1980s, Tebow said gunshots often rang out as she and her children said their bedtime prayers. In 1992, a freak accident left her with head trauma and permanent nerve damage.

“I had my own concussion,” Tebow quipped. Still, in spite of all of the hardships, Tebow said her faith continues to grow.

Defining hope as the confident expectation that God will come through, Tebow said she has learned to count on God in every circumstance of life.

The full story is here, but we'd like to leave you with this one last tid bit:

Telling a story of a five-year-old boy who recently asked his mother for God’s telephone number, Tebow said the mother told him that God does not have a phone number. The boy persisted, however, and said, “I see it written under (Tim) Tebow’s eyes every week when he plays a game,” referring to the Scripture Tim writes on his eye black.

If only.
