This Woman Shaves Off Her Hair In Order To Feel In Control Of Her Life Again!
Since she was 17, Becky’s hair began to fall out due to a strange medical condition. Soon after the first incident, Becky was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata, which is a condition in which the human body’s immune system starts to target hair follicles as if they were bacteria.
For many years to come, she took extreme measures to hide her bald spots, including taking painful shots every 3 weeks for 9 years that would help with the condition. Now, Becky is determined to take charge of her life again and feel comfortable in her own skin.
This story serves as a reminder of times in which God’s people needed to be courageous. Back when they were afraid of the events to come when having escaped Egypt with life, the Israelites were told to be courageous and have trust in God:
“Be determined and courageous. Do not be afraid of them. Your God, the Lord himself, will be with you. He will not fail you or abandon you.” —Deuteronomy 31:6
