If Christians act with integrity, “God
will bless us,” says Ward. “Leading some-
one to the Lord,” he adds, “might be the
blessing – not the money.” FT

How do you do it?” It’s the ;rst question that comes to mind when you meet Natalina Macleod, who cheerfully juggles the complexities of her life as a wife, mother of two, and marketing manager at Power to Change, one of the largest Christian non-pro;t organizations in Canada. “I quote to myself every morning, ‘Another day. Let’s go for it’,” she says with a laugh. They’re words you would expect o hear from a professional with 13 years of marketing know-how under her belt, three of those running her own business. But that mantra is less the daily pep talk of a consummate multi-tasker, and more the thankful prayer of a woman who never takes a single day for granted. Her ;rst-born Nolan had pulmonary stenosis and went into surgery within an hour of his birth. “The only thing I could o was pray and wipe his mouth from all the tubes. If that doesn’t make you grow up at 25 years old, I don’t know hat will.” A second blow hit when her second son, Markus, developed a rare form of cancer. “He had a four percent chance of living, and they basically gave me a videotape on how to grieve your
child.” To everyone’s surprise, Markus
pulled through: “I went from watching a
grieving video to praising God.” But the
trials weren’t over. In that same year,
Natalina contracted a cancer of her own.
“If it wasn’t for Jesus, we would never
have made it out.”
It’s her relationship with Jesus that
continues to ground Natalina and give
her strength. Looking back on those
terrible times, she’s able to see how
much she learned about faith, sacri;ce,
and surrender. “Now I know that the little
things [I face everyday] I have no control
over, so I sacri;ce them to God.” And
she wishes other people would come to
know what she knows: that God is the
only one who can give us the courage
and hope to make it through.
