“I don’t believe I chose my career, but that God chose me for a life of service,” she wrote. “After serving in the U.S. Marines for ten years, I very clearly heard the voice of God calling me out from serving my country and into a life of loving and serving my neighbor. Each and every one is awesome and deserves to know that God loves them just the way they are and that He values them.”
