December 9th 2019, ‘Teen Mom’ Star Mackenzie McKee lost her mother Angie Douthit to a two year battle with cancer.
Today a post was shared to her Facebook wall:
“Imitate me, as I also imitate Christ.”
1 Corinthians 11:1
“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8
On Monday, December 9 at 11:37pm, Angie finished her race. Her last days were spent lovingly surrounded by family and friends as they prayed, sang, and shared funny Angie stories.
Angie found out about her cancer in January 2018. She wanted to keep everyone informed of what was going on so she made a social media post. The next day she made another. And then another. And what started as an easy way to convey information turned into wildfire of hope that spread over the world. She wasn’t able to sleep an entire night so she would wake up around 3am to write her posts. We watched her get up everyday in the darkest hours of the night to spread the brightest light that she knew of, her Savior Jesus Christ. There were times when she wrote her posts through pain and confusion. There were times at the end when she couldn’t type and would ask her daughters to type for her but she would not give up spreading the gospel message of hope. In nearly two years, she never missed her daily post…tomorrow she will.
But this is where you pick up the baton and run like she did mighty warrior. You can choose this day to be like Angie and use your social media engagements to make a difference rather than disaster, to spread love and not hate, and to always be kind.
We know many people around the world read these posts so drop your city and country name in the comments so we can see where you are!

Mackenzie then shared the following message:
[I don’t know] anyone who left earth with such an impact,
Your entire life you never wasted a chance to let the world know God’s love. When we would try to brag on what an amazing person you are you would respond with “it’s not me, it’s God”
Could you imagine this world if we all lived like Angie Douthit.
She always said “it’s easy, we were put on earth to share Gods love.” And boy did she. 700 daily post for you guys to read daily, hundreds of speaking engagements even when she could barely walk or speak, she simply trusted That God would speak through her.
Momma, I did not deserve you… But you loved me so unconditionally. You were the glue that held me together. The one who always believed in me. Idk what I will do without you but I hope this goes by fast so I can hurry and come be with you.
You passed a torch down to us and I will not fail you. I will live for Christ and love like him like you always taught me. I will make you proud momma.
