I’m Doreen Lecheler. It’s an honor to be part of the Believe.com community. I’m a believer, and this is why.
In my early 20’s I had it all by the world’s standards. I was a professional model who was working print and runway everywhere from Paris to New York to Tokyo. On the outside, everything looked quite glamorous, but on the inside, I was falling apart. I was needy, insecure and completely self-loathing.
At 24, I had an abortion. I hated myself for it, and I was pretty sure God hated me, too. But then something miraculous happened. It happened in a way that I can only call completely God inspired. I found the Lord through an organization called Models for Christ. I left the industry a year later, went on to get my graduate degree, got married, had a child and life once again seemed perfect.
But it wasn’t.
I was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer when I was 48. I wasn’t expected to live, but through the grace of God, I was completely and 100% healed.
You can listen to my testimony here, as well as check out my monthly Believe.com articles here.
I’m so excited to be part of the Believe.com community.
I am Doreen Lecheler. I am a Christian. And I’m a Believer.
