His Grace Is Sufficient
Ten years ago, if someone would have told LaTilda Owens that she would be used by God to show others how to trust Him and unapologetically show up in every circumstance, she would have laughed. Though she believed in her purpose and understood that God could do the impossible, never did she imagine that He would birth a ministry out of her during one of her lowest moments.
In January of 2016, she entered the biggest faith walk of her life. She was diagnosed with Stage 5 kidney disease, and she was pregnant. It was as if she had been kicked in the gut with this news. Should she terminate the pregnancy or trust God to give her the desires of her heart? LaTilda chose the latter. Her daughter Charleigh Grace was born, and she began the tough journey of waiting on God’s “YES”.
Waiting on a “YES” from God wasn’t an easy feat. There were moments when her body didn’t want to cooperate with what her mind aspired to do. LaTilda suffered through moments of uncertainty and fatigue. There were hospital stays and seasons where dialysis took over her life. Yet, every day, she made a conscious decision to “trust God” and rely on the undeniable power of “His Grace is Sufficient.” This disease didn’t stop her from being the best wife and mother that she could for her family. Whatever she lacked in strength, God provided in support from her family and friends. Her faith didn’t waver.
It was while in the valley that LaTilda gained a better understanding of who she was and what she was called to do. She had a background in accounting. Before her diagnosis, she was a business consultant, operations manager and chief fiscal and budget analyst. While going through dialysis, LaTilda launched her business LHO Business Solutions. While waiting on God for a new kidney, she helped individuals start their businesses. Her company was able to provide accounting, human resources, IT and cyber security services. She prided herself in showing the faithfulness of God through every business encounter.
Though she was doing amazing work, God said “there’s more.” It was time to share her story of faith. Had she received a new kidney? No. That didn’t mean that God wasn’t up to something phenomenal in her life. LaTilda not receiving a new kidney didn’t mean that her journey wouldn’t give hope to someone suffering through their own tough time. This waiting period taught her so much that she knew she had to share it with the world. In 2020, she gave birth to the SAVED BY GRACE MOVEMENT and started to write her book.
n her book, LaTilda gives the reader an intimate look into her life and reveals how statistics and medical professional input have nothing on the will of God. She is a true testament that with FAITH and the power of grace, all things are possible.
