In an interview with local station WHNS, Owens said more about the woman who raised her and how she impacted her faith.
“She always pushed me to be my best self and always encouraged me in my faith,” she told WHNS. “She’s the reason that I have such a strong faith. She was the example of how to be a Godly woman and how to love people intentionally.”
I have no doubt that her mom’s example as well as her faith in Christ will keep pushing Lydia ahead as she enters college at Anderson University this fall, where she plans to major in elementary education. Hopefully one day she can also encourage her future students that no matter what, they too are made in the image of God and are enough.
