Now for the fun part πŸ™‚

Here are the questions Melissa asked…

1. How did you come to know and trust Jesus with your life?

Melissa, I thought real hard on how to answer this one, as my story is so woven in many posts. I will say that I was saved at a young age and made a bunch of mistakes. It was the end of my marriage, with Erin and Brandon’s mom, that I rededicated my life to the Lord. What a life changing experience that night was πŸ™‚

2. How has God’s Word, the Bible, impacted your life?

One, it keeps me sane. Two, daily reading keeps me understanding more and more of the weirdest and greatest love story EVER! Three, it has taught me more than I could possible ever write down.

3. How has knowing Jesus changed your life?


4. How is God using the gifts He has given you?

One of my gifts, though I had to learn it, is being able to listen and not just hear their words. And by doing so God has given me the privilege of helping men and women find freedom from their struggle with pornography.

5. When has your faith in Christ helped you through something difficult?

My parents divorce was a biggie as was my own divorce decades later.

6. How has the Lord brought about something good from a time of trial in your life?

He brought me true friends from my struggle with freedom from pornography and my divorce. Friends that have stood by me through thick and thin.

7. What helps keep your faith growing?

Honestly…my everyday struggles require it grows stronger than the struggle I am dealing with.

8. What is your favorite Bible story, character or verse?

My favorite Bible story is of the woman caught in adultery. I even wrote a post about it. You can read it here if you would like to. My favorite character is David. My favorite verse…

9. Why is that special to you?

James 5:16 is my life verse. If it was not for confessing my faults to others I would still be trapped in an addiction to porn. Be accountable!

10. What is your purpose for writing and blogging?

The purpose of my blog is to share my own struggles, what I went through…to an extent and pointing to God as the means to freedom. Here of late I’ve just been sharing about life in general.

11. What do you think you will say to Jesus when you get to heaven?

Oh my gosh Melissa!! Really?!?! 😁

Two words….thank you!
