Greetings in Christ! I really don't have much time right now to fill this out, so I am taking a part of what I wrote up to put in the "Jesus Is The Way" newsletter??My name is Kelly. I live in Tolono and go to Fountain of Life Family Fellowship. My uncle, Pastor Ken Young, started the church when I was in grade school. I was faithful to go?okay?my parents made me go until I was in high school at which time I moved out and led a life that was completely contradictory to what I had been taught! From 17-20 I had my life headed in a complete downward spiral. Looking back it amazes me how quickly my life went from good, to complete devastation! I got hooked in with the "party crowd" and lived a life that quickly turned me into another person. Thank God my family (both blood and church family) never washed their hands of me! I remember one night I was lying in bed crying and I had a vision of my Pastor praying for me. He was on his knees, in tears, desperately praying for me. Then right after that I saw my former Youth Leaders praying together. They were locked hand in hand, agreeing in prayer for my restoration. Again, right after that I say another man, a friend of my pastors who is quite evangelical and bold, praying?more like demanding that what was keeping me bound would be loosed and that I would come back to following the Lord. I cried myself to sleep that night. Then just a few days later, I picked up my baby and was driving home from the sitters. I hated who I had become! I think I cried for about a week?then one Saturday morning my phone rang. There was a man who said "Kelly". I said "yes". He said, "How are you". I said, "I don't know, who is this". He wouldn't answer! He was taunting me! Bing a young single mom it scared me so I hung up and went to my sister's house! When I got home I received a call from my pastor?come to find out the caller was a good family friend! He lives out of state but was in town and wanted to see me! We talked for a while on the phone and he asked if I'd come to church and sit by him so we could catch up. I said "NO WAY"! I only lived about 5 blocks from where he was staying?but he insisted that he was TOO busy to come down and that if I wanted to see him I'd have to see him at church. I never did answer him but I thought about it over and over Saturday night. I got up on Sunday morning and took a shower, still not sure if I'd venture back into church again. After all?what would everyone think? They didn't really want me there, did they? Well?church started at 9:30 and I slipped in the door at 9:29 and got a seat real quick! I didn't want to give anyone a chance to talk to me, you know! I had already decided that I wasn't going to sing the songs or listen to the pastor preach?I just wanted to hang out with my old friend! Announcements were read, then the praise and worship time came. I remember actually FEELING the love and forgiveness of God. It was almost like He was pouring it out before I had "officially" asked for it! Next thing I know Pastor has an alter call. Here I am?crying, holding onto my baby, not sure if I was worthy of going up and accepting the forgiveness and love that the Lord had readily available. The next part is kind of a blur?because I don't remember passing my baby to someone else to hold, nor do I remember walking down the aisle to get to the alter! But, somehow I got there and was embraced by my Pastor and his wife. We cried, hugged, prayed, and we hugged and cried some more! I walked away from that alter a completely different person! Since that day, May 31, 1998, I have lived my life to glorify the Father! I'll be the first to say that I've messed up numerous times on my journey?but I'll also be the first to tell you that I run to the Father when I do and get it under the blood! I know the difference the Lord can make, so I make it a priority to study the word and preach what the Holy Spirit gives me so that others can hear, and know, our Father?a Mighty God who can set them free from the laws of sin and death! I'm truly excited about what the Lord is doing in my life! I preach in the local county jail, teach Sunday School, coach soccer, am my daughters room mom, and so much more! TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY!!! --the Marines in the picture are my brothers! --Also, my free trial period is over. . . so if you'd like to talk more, please send me a note! :)
