Thankful for 72 years of life and being a conduit of God’s truth!


On the eve of my 72nd birthday, my heart is full of thanksgiving for knowing God in the power of His Spirit for 62 1/2 years! This wonderful Acts 2 experience of salvation came to my family in 1925 (93 years).

God is the same yesterday, today and forever! I’m influencing the 5th generation to know God through His Word and Spirit.

Our purpose in life is to glorify God in our body and spirit which belong to God – 1 Cor. 6: 19 – 20. God must be an integral part of everything we do in life.

Knowing God through a salvation experience does not guarantee a ‘happy life’ with no problems. Jesus said we would have troubles in this world, but be encouraged because He overcame the world through the death on the cross and the power of God’s resurrection.

As I reflect over my 72 years of life, we’ve experienced many joys and adversities – life/death, spiritual warfare, adversities from the devil and a few from humans. But through it all, God has been faithful giving courage and strength – looking unto Him who is the author and finisher of my faith and life!

I challenge first generation believers to know and trust God. No matter what our life’s circumstances, if we totally surrender to God we can walk in victory even in the middle of adversity.

All the devil has to offer is evil. Oh yes, there can be pleasure in sin for a season, but seasons always come to an end. In God’s timing, every knee shall bow before Him and confess He is Lord!

I’m thankful for the 50+ years of teaching God’s truth. I’m thankful for being a conduit of His Truth to help hurting hearts through counseling (nationwide (636) 448-0121) for 25+ years.

I’m thankful for my faithful (ordained minister) husband who supports me 1000% in the ministry God has given to me. I’m thankful for children and their spouses and grands who love God.

I have so much more that I want to do to spread God’s truth to the whole world! At 72, I’m excited about the future God has prepared for me for His glory!
