Journaling Reads:

When I was 5 or 6 years old, I told my parents I wanted to ask Jesus into my heart. so, kneeling at our couch (which had a flowered slip cover...a vivid memory to me of that event), I asked Jesus into my heart. I really remember nothing else of that "life-changing" event. BUT...I know that because of that moment in my life, I will live in heaven with Jesus forever when it is time for me to leave this earth.

I have led a "good life"---never had a time in my life when I turned away from God. Yet, there were times in my life when I felt like I had no "great testimony" of "when I became a Christian". God didn't save me from a "great sinful life". BUT...He did save me. Who knows what would have become of me if I hadn't received Jesus at a young age.

I have gone through many trials and there were times when I felt far from God. But, He never moved---HE was always there! I am very thankful that I have not turned away from Him. I am amazed that having lived 50 years as a Christian, there is always something new to learn from God! I am always growing!

God is SO GOOD!
What A Friend I Have in Jesus!
Jesus Loves ME!

"Trust in the Lord with all my heart..." Prov. 3:5

UNDER THE PICTURE:
When my dad was the pastor of his first church in Beaver, OR, I realized my need for a Savior. This picture was taken sometime during the three years we lived in Beaver. It was on this couch that I asked Jesus into my heart. In this picture, I think I was about four years old. I was saved at five or six years old.
