Christian artist Natalie Grant donated $5,000 to a mother and her family during her ‘Dare To Be’ Tour after learning the mother had taken in a friend’s children after the father killed the mother.
Natalie shared the story of Stephanie Meeker on FB,
“This story. This moment. Oh my word, what a privilege to honor Stephanie Meeker last night. Stephanie helped her best friend get out of a dangerous and abusive marriage. But unfortunately, the husband came back into the home, and murdered his wife, while their four children were asleep in their beds. Amidst the shock, horror and grief, Stephanie and her husband stepped in and took those four children on as their own,” the singer wrote on Facebook.
“The financial burden, not to mention, just the psychological and emotional trauma of those precious children, has been a lot for this dear family. Stephanie can no longer work so she can care for her family and handle all of the court related matters for the kids. As they live on one income, friends and their church have stepped in to help them survive,” she continued.
Although the people of God have already been such a blessing to the Meeker family, Grant and her team felt moved to further “ease the financial burden just a bit” more.
“It was a privilege to bless Stephanie with a check for $5000! But knowing this entire situation has meant that Stephanie and her husband have had no time for themselves, we knew we needed to do more. Because of the generosity of the women in Philadelphia, we are sending Stephanie and her husband on an all expense paid vacation to the Florida Keys. The best part: Stephanie had just told her friend this morning that she really wished she could go to Florida with her husband,” Grant celebrated.”
The Christian singer ended her post by declaring, “God is so faithful!!!”
