A New Life – Financially and Emotionally

Tracey is a successful author and motivational speaker with a six-figure salary.

But  there was a time when she was a stressed out single mom barely making ends meet.  

“I was at a very very desperate place in my life. I had to claw my way back to the top.”

Tracey’s life hit bottom after she suffered two tragic events in the same year. First, she lost her four year old daughter to leukemia and then, her marriage dissolved. Almost overnight, she became the sole caretaker of her young sons.  

Tracy says, “So I am thinking, how  am I going to take care of myself and two babies? They need food, they need clothes.”

Tracey was a government worker whose $24,000 salary barely paid the rent.  No matter how hard she tried, she couldn’t cover all her family’s expenses.

“Finances, I couldn’t think about anything else but finances, says Tracey.  I felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders.”

As a child, Tracey found peace and stability at church.  In her current distress, that is where she returned,  and  she began to pray for help.

She remembers praying,  “God, how can you help us  This is real, we need help. I do not know how I’m going to take care of my kids. I need more money. During that time I started reading my word. That’s  when I locked into the scripture from Malachi 3:10 on tithing. I didn’t start out giving 10% in the beginning. I was just trying it out - testing God to see what He would do."

Within weeks, Tracey says she saw changes.

“When I started giving 10%, I’m going to tell you like, I was getting promotions back to back.”

So Tracey increased her giving.

“I felt like by me tithing, God was showing me, not only am I going to bless your finances, I’m going to bless your family. If there was a need financially, I would pray to God and say, God, 'I know you have us.'”

In the next 12 years, Tracey received 11 more promotions and her annual salary quatrupled.  She also received something that couldn’t be measured in dollars, less worry and stress.

“Now that’s incredible. That’s nothing but God. He put me in a place of comfort, a place of peace. My kids and I did so many fun things together. “
Along the way, Tracey was able to buy a home. And, she met and married Raymond. She also joined The 700 Club.

Tracy says, “All I can do is give back because God has done so much for me. CBN is out there helping the lives of the destitute, the poor, the needy. I just feel like CBN is one of the best places to sow that seed.”

Today, Tracey is a busy author and speaker whose greatest joy is hanging out with her family and telling others how they can be blessed like she is.

“Tithing is a way to lock into God, to connect with Him, to trust him with every area of your life. He works unexpectedly. You don’t even know or believe or can’t even  imagine where the money is going to come from, but He says, 'Try me, test me' and when you do that, your mind is going to be blown. That’s just how that works.”
