Imagine yourself as Elizabeth, the cousin of Mary, as she prepares for the birth of her son. You and your husband have been visited by the angel Gabriel, your husband has been rendered mute, and you know that the rest of your relatives won’t be happy that you’re naming your child, “John.” What does it feel like to stand up for what God calls you to in your community? What is it like to feel God’s blessing and to see your husband unmuted? How do you imagine a big future for your little one, for your family, and for the world?
