Grew up in the Methodist church.  My mom was saved when I was in Junior High and began attending First Baptist Church of George West.  I saw people saved and expressing spiritual relief (crying) and wondered what was wrong with them.  Quit going to church after High School.  Began going to church after my children were born and noticed that when we gave money to God’s program, we didn’t have a financial bind.  In 1986, while at a friend’s apartment, we were discussing “spiritual things.”  My friend left the room and I in a state of confusion looked out the window up to the sky and said “I can no longer run this show, You have to do it.”  No one lead me to the Lord that day and no one lead me in a “sinner’s prayer.”  I surrendered my will to the Lord.  I do not know the date in 1986 that I did this, but it was a life transforming event.  After this, God placed me in the educational ministry of five churches I have been a member.  I now serve as the Minister of Education at The Bridge.
