This Is My Story


April 1, 2005
BRENDA WATKINS
I was born and raised in loving and caring home 

Times were hard for our family in those days and both of my parents worked. My mother held two jobs while also attending school. For that reason, my older sister, Gale did most of the raising of my other sister, Sharon and me. She taught me about Jesus, and to this day is my mentor in the faith. I still run to her frequently for spiritual guidance. I remember when we were small, she got us up early on Sunday morning to get us all dressed up.  Then we would walk a mile to church. When summer came, it was the same thing for vacation bible school. It was in VBS that I finally gave my heart to God and was baptized.  

As a born again believer, I have not always been obedient to his Word. At different times in my life, I have been sidetracked into worldliness, but I have never let go of Him, and what is better, He has never let go of me! Gale used to tell me that no matter where I was or what I was doing, I would never be alone, and that I could talk to Jesus anytime I wanted to.  I havenít stopped talking to Him since, and God has always held me faithfully in His hands.

 I am still growing and learning about my Savior today.  I thank God every day for the love of my pastor and my church family who help me to grow and give me strength.

 I love you ALL!
