Firstly, THANK YOU, Blossom and David for spilling your very emotional story onto pages with conviction, hopes, and prayers that others will find their way back from a dark tunnel towards healed hearts. Honesty and transparency is the window into healing broken hearts.
Secondly, Josh and Ally, I am SO proud of you guys for the way you've articulated your feelings during a time that was indeed devastating for you and yet you've proven that forgiveness has the power to mend beyond our wildest imaginations. There is no shame in sharing and standing on the front lines for your parents and the Turner name. I truly admire you all.
As one of Blossom's sister's (sixth in line to the throne, LOL!), I had both the sorrow and the joy of walking this road with their family. I spent countless hours crying, walking and listening to my sister as she was swept away into deep sadness over the events that unfolded before her and David. But over time I watched, and literally traveled, thousands of miles with them as they wound their way back through the valley and up the mountain as they forgave, prayed and pursued God's heart for their marriage.
Just recently I had the honor of listening to Blossom as she shared her story to a women's group at her first public speaking engagement. It was amazing! And I am proud to be her sister. I am proud that she can speak out against the deepest betrayal and yet the most profound healing all in the same story. This is a work of the Lord and truly a modern day miracle. God is so good!
To anyone who is struggling with this story and perhaps feeling shamed because of your name being linked to it, I would say, "link arms with David, Blossom, Josh and Ally for even a day and you would be so deeply moved by their story and unconditional love that I can guarantee you'd change your heart/mind".
NEVER stop telling your story, Blossom. I know it takes great courage for all of you to share but you ARE impacting lives for Jesus...and that's what matters MOST!
