Heidi Cruz Recalls Finding God’s Purpose for Ted During a Dark Time, and How It Kept Her Going

It’s always amazing how God can use the dark times in our life to reveal His plans for us in ways that sustain and motivate us for years to come. 



Ted Cruz is one of the most polarizing figures in Washington DC. A beacon of conservatism and sold biblical values for many, he’s often portrayed as one of the evilest of Republicans by the left.

Always close by his side is his loving and supportive wife Heidi, who, during Cruz’s 2016 Presidential run, was scrutinized almost as closely as her husband was for her high-powered financial career.

Far from the pregnant-and-barefoot demure traditional wife most people imagine such a conservative political as Cruz might have, Heidi is the Harvard-educated breadwinner for the Cruz family, something that she hasn’t always managed to fuse together seamlessly with her husband’s political career.

In Ted’s early days in politics, Heidi recently shared in an interview with The Atlantic, there was a time when his recent appointment to as the Texas Solicitor General left the newly married couple in separate cities.

At the time Heidi was working for the National Security Council, so she remained in Washington DC as he settled in Houston.

Two years later, however, she agreed to move back to Texas to be closer to Ted and take a financial position there with Merrill Lynch, a career transition that Heidi ended up finding very challenging.

After a significant emotional struggle, she finally ended up signing up for a Catholic retreat so she could cope with her depression and grief over giving up a job she’d loved.

It was then that she met a counselor who gave her a message that would encourage her many years later when she and Ted had the spotlight of the nation on them.

The counselor, an 80-year-old Haitian woman, Heidi explained, “sat me down and she looked at me and she goes, ‘I can tell you have an amazing husband. And you both will have an impact on this country.’ She said, ‘God is going to use you, not Ted — not just Ted. You’re part of this team for a reason. God’s gonna use you to do something beyond yourself. You just let God take you to Texas, you let him take you wherever. Because there’s something bigger than you now.’”

Working with this counselor helped Heidi to keep going and to settle into her new life and her new path.

Years later, when she and Ted were on their way to announce his 2016 bid for the presidency, she was journaling her calories when she came across notes from these counseling sessions.

Realizing she’d gone from mourning her own difficult career change to being on her way to launch her husband’s presidential run, Heidi says, I just started crying.”

It’s always amazing how God can use the dark times in our life to reveal His plans for us in ways that sustain and motivate us for years to come.

12-Year-Old Hailed as Hero After Saving His Friends Life After Disturbing Snapchat Posts

We certainly hope there are many more young people like Gabe out there willing to reach out and intervene when their friends are in trouble




Most of the time, when we think of preteens using Snapchat, we think of all the scary things that can happen online. Bullying, predatory behavior, pornography. It’s a scary cyber world out there. But oddly enough, when one 12-year-old with a good heart and sharp instincts managed to use Snapchat to get his friend the help she needed in the nick of time, by responding quickly right when he noticed something was amiss. Yahoo News reports: Gabe Rongier had been chatting with his friend, who he met on the social media app through a mutual friend, when he noticed a drastic change in the girl’s emotions. According to CBS Pittsburgh, the girl shared a disturbing post that read she “wouldn’t be here tomorrow.” Want daily pop culture news delivered to your inbox? for Yahoo’s newsletter. Gabe, not knowing how to alert the authorities in Texas about the girl possibly being a danger to herself, called the suicide hotline. “I called the suicidal prevention services and it linked me to Officer Chandler [in Texas,]” Gabe told the outlet. “He went to her house, checked up on her. The next day he called me and said, ‘She’s fine. It’s real.’” Gabe’s parents, Fred and Lori, were informed by investigators that they used geotracking to locate the girl and that they arrived in time to intervene with any plans she may have had. “Of course, I’m very proud of him, but I really hope that other young people his age might see the story and also be inspired to also take action to help somebody in need just like Gabe did,” Lori said. Fred added, “When he went to bed, I always kiss him and, I’ve been telling him since that day, ‘You’re my little hero.’” Officer Chandler also sent Gabe, who wants…

Huge Fire Tears Through Church…You Won’t Believe Went Unscathed

Firefighters were absolutely shocked when they finally got inside the razed church.




Truly and utterly, there are some time in which the truth is far stranger than any conjured fiction. Here in America, we seem to love these stories and the mysteries behind them.  We’re obsessed with unsolved true crime, the paranormal, and all things hypothetical…including bizarre notions about the ancient Egyptians galavanting around with extraterrestrials. Is this simply escapism run amok?  Perhaps, but we have been drawn to the impossible and improbable throughout the entirety of human history. That is why the story of a church fire in West Virginia is so compelling. Firefighters in West Virginia surveying the damage from an inferno that had gutted a church over the weekend were astounded when they discovered that a bevy of Bibles and crosses had somehow survived the conflagration unscathed. The remarkable find was reportedly made early Sunday morning after the Coal City Fire Department helped to battle a blaze that had engulfed the Freedom Ministries Church in the community of Greenview. Upon entering the building, the team of rescue workers was stunned to see that every Bible inside the church had apparently made it through the harrowing ordeal undamaged. Posting pictures of the amazing sight to Facebook, the department noted that the fire had, at one point, been so hot that they were actually forced to pull personnel from the building for their safety. The temperatures were so extreme, they explained, that everything inside should have been reduced to ashes. Firefighters also remarked that none of the crosses inside the church itself were damaged by fire either, adding to the mystery.
