Mark June, Little June.

It was almost three years ago when and I was in a bad place, I was recently (3 months officially) divorced, my ex wife had been cheating so I filed when I found out though we had been separated for quite some time. Through extremely hard work and carful savings I had saved hundreds of thousands of dollars which was now all gone due to my Ex. I was single, angry and broke.

I was running away from home for Christmas and was staying in Colorado at a friends house where I was introduced to a mutual female friend (Rachel) with instructions to "leave her alone" which was my full intent, I had no desire to even be around Women at that point. My friends whom I was staying with had told me about Rachel before, "hard working, good looking, Christian", good virtues which I found to be true but again I was not interested.

I stayed with my friends for a couple weeks and Rachel would come over on and off, for whatever reason (God probably) Rachel and I were very attracted to each other and clicked very well. We started taking walks together, talking, etc. I felt extremely conflicted or inadequate, she was the Virgin Christian woman, I was the divorced (recently), broke (also recently) man who was in serious doubt about God. For who knows what reason (God probably) I messaged Mark June through Trapperman, as a man pursuing God daily I wanted his thoughts on a potential relationship with Rachel, subconsciously I think I was looking for reassurance of my initial thoughts which were to stay out of a relationship and leave this Godly Woman alone.

Mr June must of taken some carful thought before responding, he offered encouragement to pursue a respectful relationship which both surprised and delighted me. I could of course go on but at this point a picture speaks to the rest of the rest of the story. The picture below is of Rachel and my baby girl Juniper, aka "June Bug" or "Baby June".

I've been extremely blessed since reaching out to Mr June and meeting Rachel. Work has been good and I was able to afford a double wide, a septic, well, electricity, driveway, etc. We have a house, some savings and a family. I'm very thankful to Mr June, he did more than he knows. For those who made it to the end I thank you for reading through and would remind you on Tman there are some amazing individuals who are extremely helpful if reached out to privately. If you need help, encouragement or maybe even someone to just listen to you're issues there is someone here for you, reach out to them.

Very inspirational, no doubt the Lord had a hand in your outcome....Mark June is a very good man, I've not seen eye to eye with him on some points of doctrine and even told him he was full of it once in a P.M. which I now regret... But since then have seen the Lord work through him in his threads and posts here on T-Man.

More than just a great trapper, in fact much more, and you see the results of his counsel.

P.S. Juniper is beautiful, y'all are blessed!

Great story and thinks for sharing. Beautiful baby girl and your correct on all acounts. God is amazing and T man has a great group of members. I received offers to come help with anything we needed from people I have never met or communicated with before from half way across the country when my daughter was shot. You just don't find people like that very often and the % of people of that caliber here is exceptionally high and a very rare and valuable asset to the world.

God always has a plan even when it hurts and we can't see the future good that's just on the other side. You were at your lowest point yet now worst day with your Godly bride and daughter it's better than your best times with your ex and times when you thought you were on top of the world.

Sure is nice to hear of something good happening once in awhile!
I notice you have forgotten to give yourself any credit in this success story, and you are deserving of some.

I agree, Mark is a good man. We should all be carful in how we interact with each other, it's easy to forget we're on the same side sometimes, especially online.

I'm honestly not sure how I got through the whole situation, it was incredibly difficult. Credit goes to God and those who talked me back from the cliff during that time. I learned who my friends were that is for sure. My Ex not only cheated and stole all of my money she also spread a lot of lies, it was extremely difficult for me to see "friends" and neighbors many of whom Ide helped without asking anything in return turn against me on the words of a mentally unstable alcoholic.


Thank you all for the kind words, appreciate it.

God has blessed you in so many ways. I too have found friendship and counsel from another tman member. With a strong will to be good and do good glorious things can come to fruition. Your little June-bug is one of those things. God bless and take care.

Beautiful baby! Very happy for you! Mark is an inspiration used by God. I'm sure he was praying for you big time. Jesus never gives up on us no matter how dire the situation.

What a great ending and what God and Pray can do. I'm glad you reached out for help and that is the hardest part for man to do. You are a very lucky blessed individual.

Thanks for sharing your story with us.
