The Lord Jesus Christ tells us through the apostle Paul that the measure of a successful ministry in this Dispensation of Grace is written down in 2 Timothy 2:2 And the things that thou hast heard of me (The doctrine that Paul gives us) among many witness, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. We here at 14th Street Ministries are committed to this ministry in 2 Timothy 2:2. The goal is to commit the doctrine to faithful men, and these faithful men will teach and commit the doctrine to other faithful men. So, the message of grace will continue to go out in our area and around the world.

I grew up blessed with parents who instilled in us a love of Christ and the ability to attend church and a Christian school. As I recall back, I recall that every day I felt I had to repent in order to stay saved. This was exhausting.

I went to Bible College in 1988, and it was during one of the Chapel services where they were teaching being sanctified, and the works we needed to do to keep our salvation. It was mentally exhausting because I felt it difficult to keep track of if I thought something bad during the day, or did something that was sinful.

During that service, the Holy Spirit spoke to me and reminded me that my Savior Jesus Christ died on the Cross for all my sins and I already had believed and had faith that Christ died for me, so I was reminded that it was for ALL my sins.

That is when life changed for me as the stress and struggle to ‘stay saved’ was gone and I finally felt the freedom that Grace gives me.

The Cross that cost my Lord His life, Has absolutely given me mine!

As a young child, I was taken to church by a Christian family and later I started riding the church van each Sunday. I remember distinctly thinking that I wanted to be a part of this way of life and admired many families in the church in which I attended. I truly felt the love of Christ even at this young age.

During a children’s church message about the death of Jesus on the cross, I felt the Lord speak to me about being a sinner. The teacher read the verses in Romans that we all have sinned, and we all fall short of the glory of God. I knew that I needed to ask Jesus to forgive me that day and I went to the front to pray for forgiveness and to receive the gift of salvation. I was seven years old. Not too long after that my parents were witnessed to and a man from the church had a burden for their souls as well. My parents came to know the Lord as their Savior when I was 8.

I always had a deep desire to follow the Lord Jesus Christ in my life and had a burden for the lost. I felt the Lord leading me to read my Bible and to witness. As I attended a private Christian school in my high school years, my knowledge of the Word grew. I attended Bible College after high school earning a bachelor’s in psychology with a minor in Christian Education Studies.

I have been married for 29 years and we have seven children. I was a stay-at-home mother who homeschooled most of them through high school. We have one teenager home who will soon turn 18. Over the years I have been involved in many ministries and programs within the church. I returned to the ‘workforce’ after 20 years and now work for the public local school department as a substitute teacher’s aide and full-time school clinic nurse’s aide.

Keeping the Word of God fresh in your mind and soul, studying its vibrant truths, and sharing the Gospel message is a never-ending opportunity for the believer. I am thankful for the privilege to share God’s Word with the radio program and pray that the Lord blesses His word to the hearts of the listeners.
