The Privilege to Raise Our Three Children with the Truth of God’s Word
I was raised in a large family, and my parents were very loving and giving people. From a very young age, my siblings and I were taught the value of being interested in others and helping out in any way we could. Having had this great foundation, when our family got involved in The Way Ministry, the Word I received helped me see the love and compassion we can exhibit in our lives, like Jesus Christ and others we see in God’s Word. As a young person and an adult, these examples showed me that I could step out of my comfort zone and not only extend this love to people I knew but to others that I had just met. God’s Word enables us to be bold and fearless in our concern for others.
I was sitting in the waiting room of a doctor’s office with one of my young children when I saw a gentleman in great pain and coughing rather loudly. As the other patients moved away from him and he was sitting all alone, I realized I had a decision to make. I could sit there and ignore him, or I could get involved and pray for him. As we prayed together and he visibly became more comfortable, I couldn’t help but think about how thankful I was for God and our wonderful ministry!
One of my greatest joys has been the privilege to raise our three children with the truth of God’s Word that we learned in The Way Ministry. These truths have enabled them to stand strong with believing and have great love in their lives as well.
The Witness of the Family
I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.
The Way Ministry has been an integral part of my life since I was nineteen years old. I am now almost sixty. Throughout these forty years, I have served in many capacities, married, raised a family, and I now have believing grandchildren. There are many, many incidents where God healed, delivered, saved, and just taught me so I could grow. But the greatest blessing, aside from salvation and eternal life, is the witness of the family that my husband and I have raised to love God and His Word. As I reflect, I see the strength and love of God that my children manifest. They have taken what was taught and run further and harder than we could. In addition, we all enjoy health and peace. It is the knowledge of the Word which has been taught by The Way Ministry that has had this mighty impact on my life and that of my family. Without this ministry, we could not have been so blessed. For this I am most thankful.
