But when I truly Seeked, I Found God

I was raised and baptized in a Mormon church, but the mother who brought my family to Jesus Christ had died of cancer. Our family drifted away from the church and my dad lost his job, our house went on foreclosure, our new house was broken into and robbed, and my parents wedding ring was stolen. One day out of the blue I decided to start reading the Bible. I had a desire to finally let go of my fear of Hell.

Blessings really do come from teardrops


I am a semi-retired speech teacher from Joplin Missouri. You may have heard about Joplin recently when the F5 Multi Vortex Tornado ripped through our town.

It’s still weird driving through Joplin. You can’t drive through the south part of town, from the west to the east side, without a sombre reminder of the tornado. Where once stood busy neighbourhoods with large shade trees, now resemble desolate wastelands.
