A Joy Inside| September 1, 2022

My Song| January 1, 2013
The story behind my poem is very special to me because the Lord asked me to write it. I'm from the Amish culture, and as the Lord opened my eyes to receive Him as my Savior, I now want to share my testimony with others. He has changed my perspective and made a new piece of pottery out of me. Though I was broken, now Jesus can shine through my being, and I can tell the world of His love and what He has done for me.

Freedom From The Past| November 1, 2008
(1) I was walking in the valley of darkness; Fear and hatred overtook me; I was in my own world of selfishness; Believing the lies the Enemy told me. (2) Feeling lonely, rejected, hurt, and confused; No one could I trust anymore; Always feeling unloved and used; Turning away when you knocked on my door.
