"Now I Know,
that I Know,
that I Know"

Early on
Being brought up as Roman Catholic and having practiced this religion more than half of my life, I believed that Roman Catholicism was #1 and the only true religion. As a Catholic, I always had a great fear of dying and going to Hell.
Although as Catholics, we were taught to work our way, pay our way, and do good works toward earning Heaven, we were taught that no one could know for sure that they were going to go directly to Heaven!!! The Catholic priest(s) (and doctrine) taught us that "no one could know for sure they were going directly to Heaven because anyone saying they knew for sure was guilty of the grievously wicked 'sin of presumption'".
As Catholics, we were not allowed to attend service at a Baptist Church or any non-Catholic church or to read non-Catholic tracts. Being a good Catholic meant not reading any "religious" material unless the word "Imprimatur" us officially imprinted on the literature.


I got saved when I was 51 years old (May 29, 1976) - two days after my physical birthday. At first it seemed difficult to understand the simple message of salvation. I did not know that it is/was so easy and simple to be saved and accept the Lord as my Saviour. Finally realizing that my good works could never be "good enough" or sufficient to "earn Heaven", I felt FREED; because now I can see; I'm not blind anymore. Praise the Lord!!! Now that I am born-again, Bible-believing Christian, I believe the Lord was preparing my family and me to be saved and follow and serve Him.
When m daughter, Vicky, witnessed to me, I was in much anguish over a tragedy in the family. I had pain in my chest and down my arm - I thought I was having a heart attack as she explained the Gospel (1 Cor 15:3-4) - how Jesus Christ is God and that He was there to take it all away and that He loved me and had shed His own precious blood, had died in my place for my sins. At first I didn't believe her, but knowing I had no where to turn, I cried out to the Lord to help me. Praise the Lord!!! - He did. He took that pain away. I quit crying, and a peace came over me because I knew I had a Saviour who truly cared about me.


Since Salvation
So for the past 30 years, through tragedy, much pain, sorrow and heartache (especially the loss of my husband, my oldest son, and my great-grandson), I know my Lord has seen me through it all.


Soul Winning
Throughout the past 30 years, I've been a soul winner. I am not afraid to witness to anyone. When I meet people, I give them tracts, and I ask questions such as: "Are you saved; do you know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour?" Praise the Lord!!! I have been used of the Lord to lead many to be saved and brought to the Lord.

I've made sure they have a Bible, try to disciple them so they know what the Lord expects of them: become part of a Christ-centered, Bible Believing, Independent, Fundamental, Soul Winning, local Baptist Church that uses the KJV only. I try to teach them to read the Bible, get Baptized, to pray, to witness, to tell others how to get saved, to care and have a broken heart for those souls who are on their way to Hell.

I pray I'm a testimony to anyone who knows I'm a Christian now, an I intend to follow my Lord 'til He comes and takes me Home with Him. I try to obey His commandments to go, to tell, and to bring the lost in, so they will not go to Hell. I pray daily for my family, friends, and neighbors (and even my enemies.)

Ever since I got saved and came out of Catholicism, I see fire around people who are lost. The Lord urges us to talk to them. I'm afraid that unsaved person will go on their way and might get killed or die and end up in that horrible eternal fire (Hell). I always carry tracts, and I pass them out any where and every where. I mail them in all bills and greeting cards (birthday, anniversary, get well cards, etc.).  I have witnessed to all my side of the family, and all we could on my husband's side too. I've given them all Bibles (sadly, I doubt they read them). I've invited them to numerous functions at our church as well as to come hear my son, Glenn, preach (he's an evangelist) and to hear his Bluegrass Gospel band. I also sent them his tapes and CD's (sadly, I doubt they've even listened to them).

Many on both sides of the family finally accepted the Lord on their death beds (literally just prior to dying). Praise the Lord!!! I will keep praying for the others and ill keep telling them about my Lord. I love my family (immediate, extended, and "adopted") and I don't want any of them to go to Hell (nor my enemies).


The Bible
A few months after I was saved, I stopped reading that false Catholic version because the word "Penance" replaced the correct word - "Repent". I turned to the authorized King James Bible, which is the only Bible I read because I know that the KJV is the only Bible for us as English speaking people.

I believe in reading my Bible daily and praying over my list of everyone - my pastor, other pastors, missionaries, and their families, our your people, such folks and my others. I'm happy to say "I've read my King James Bible 34 times - and I don't care what the Catholic priest said about us never be able to understand the Bible apart from the Catholic Church interpreting it for us.

I led a Catholic lady (who was near death) to the Lord, and she accepted the King James Bible from me. I urge all that have accepted the Lord as their Saviour to read His Word daily!!!

My favorite verse is John 3:16. It is carved on my husband's and my shared tombstone. I love God's Holy Word, the Bible. I have just recently taken a challenge given by my preacher son, Glenn, and have read through the entire Bible in three months. I am so hungry for the Truth - the Word of God. My son, Glenn, advised me to always open the Bible so the individual(s) can see by themselves that my source is the Bible and so that the person would know "thus saith the Lord" not "thus saith Jennie." I've memorized many Scripture verses, and have searched for answers to many things that come up and have always made sure I'd show people the Word of God in the Bible.


I KNOW that I now have joy in my heart and I'm a happy, content person. I KNOW for sure I'm not alone, that the Lord is always with me, and that He will be back and take me to Heaven someday soon.


Are you born again?
"Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." (John 3:3) I pray if anyone who is not sure of salvation who is reading my testimony will:
- Admit you are a sinner (Rom 3:23)
- Believe Jesus died on the cross taking your place, shedding His blood for you as the one and only perfect and sinless payment for your sin (Rom 6:23) knowing you can do nothing good enough to earn Heaven; (Eph 2:8,9)
- Confess Him as your Lord and Savior. (Rom 10:9,10,13)
Praise the Lord!!! Amen.
