Not Who I Used to Be

July 13, 2023

I grew up in New York. I attended an awesome church, Smithtown Gospel Tabernacle (“SGT”). I recall many things from that church. Sunday School, Pastor Bob and his awesome wife, Sue, their amazing kids, the youth group, my friends, and how can I ever forget…

that my mom would take us to church in. To top it off, she would pull right upfront.  

I was sooooo embarrassed!!

I thrived in that church. At five, I remember holding tightly to a picture of Jesus in Sunday School. I recall how much I felt loved by Him from hearing the teachings from my Sunday School teacher. 

Jesus loved me, this I knew! 

I loved Jesus with all my heart. I couldn’t wait for Sunday. I wanted to hear more about Jesus and get to know Him. Never knew love like that. I never said a sinners prayer, I just knew I let Jesus save me.

 Belief is all I needed.

I did not grow up in a Christian home. My mom sent us to VBS one summer. A friend of moms, in overeaters anonymous told her about it. I loved VBS so much I begged my mom and dad to let me go to that church.  

It was a place I felt loved, safe and most of all it was quiet!!

My house was a tad crazy!!
