Here's a bit of her journey to faith in Christ.
I've been walking closely with the Lord for the past 25 years now even though I first asked Him into my life 20 years before that. It took those 20 years for me to realize that the enemy knew exactly what it took to keep me from that relationship. It was my love of traveling. Every time I rededicated my life to the Lord (that happened a few times) that shifty devil dangled an opportunity for me to move.
The first opportunity for travel was to Las Vegas when I was 24 and I ended up right back into the world. The second time was after I moved to Florida. After living there for 11 yrs I found an amazing church, rededicated myself then a month later the opportunity to move to Lake Tahoe arose which of course I jumped at. Unfortunately, every time I made a move I never plugged into a solid church. I did search this time but never really connected.
It was in Tahoe that my casino coworkers (He is everywhere) were instrumental in bringing me back to the Lord and I never looked back. He had me hook, line and sinker. It was then that the light flipped on for me, the enemy was using my wanderlust to distract me once again with travel because I was given the opportunity to work on a 5-star cruise ship for an 8-month cruise around the world. Once I turned it down for our relationship amazing things started happening, not right away but I found myself walking up the gangway on the Anastasis (Mercy Ships). The Lord gave me back my love for traveling only this time it was serving Him. We can never out-give Him. I served with Mercy Ships for a total of 7-years.
I moved a lot since my 20's many more than I've shared here. I've been a Real Estate agent, a Personal Insurance Broker, an Office Manager, a croupier, and a waitress. Life has been interesting but I'm so thrilled to have a true purpose back in my life, in service for my Lord.
So that's a very condensed version of my last 40-years. I can't wait to meet you all very soon.
Blessing today and always,
