Jessy Bennett

Emily Payne is a Whitesville native and graduate of St Mary's and Trinity High School.  Emily talks about how her faith has always been a part of her life, but it was more centered on herself and what she wanted/needed.

It wasn't until she became pregnant that she truly began to pray for someone other than herself. They discovered during pregnancy that her daughter's heart was not forming properly and she would need surgery shortly after birth to repair her heart.

The birth of her daughter brought more complications and health issue--along with more worry and fear.   But Emily and her husband had an amazing support system of family and friends who were there with may prayers for healing and words of comfort. During her daughter's heart surgery, Emily recalls feeling a sense of peace that and knowing that God was in control of this situation. So they prayed and handed it over to him.

Emily shares her experiences of learning to trust in God and how she has grown in her faith over the years.
