It's difficult to know what to say, here, because I'm not all that comfortable talking about myself. I am the executive director of a prison ministry. I am passionate about my work, and I can talk about that all day long. But talking/writing about who I am just seems wrong. Still, the caption says they want at least 50 words. . . So, let's see. . . I'm a widow, a mother, and a grandma. I like the mountains and LOVE the ocean. I have a great life - but sometimes I wish there was someone to share it with. **edit**OK, then, after looking around the site a bit and reading through the community forums perhaps an update to my profile is in order. Specifically in reference to my walk with Our Lord. I was born into a Protestant family, and raised as one of five siblings who all (eventually) became ordained ministers within Charismatic/Pentecostal churches. From 1988 - 2000, my late husband and I worked together in Outreach Ministries according to Christ's mandate in Matthew 25:36-40. Our 'philosophy' of ministry was to work alongside other members of the Body of Christ to bring His love, wholeness, and provision to those who need Him. We worked across denominational lines as though they did not exist. Our reason? In John 17, where Jesus prayed for His body to be one, as He and the Father are One. We could not imagine that Jesus would pray a prayer that He did not expect to be answered! I mean, if anyone ever prayed faith-filled prayers. . . wouldn't He?In 2005 Our Lord began drawing me into a deep study of Catholicism, and eventually brought me to embrace a far deeper level of faith in Him than I had ever known was possible. As a result, I entered the Catholic Church through the RCIA program in 2007 and am now a fully practicing Catholic. Yet, I also remain active in the small Assembly of God congregation that is pastored by my late husband's best friend. I don't believe that unity lies within leaving one faith-tradition and 'converting' to another, but rather in embracing Truth where ever it is taught and working together to dispel what is falsehood. Both my pastor and my priest know and approve of my commitment to live as connective tissue within the Body of Christ. It isn't an 'easy walk, ' as I often find myself in the 'cross hairs' of Catholic-Christians and Non-Catholic-Christians alike. The church choices offered in the profile-building area of this site are a bit limiting. Had the option been available, I would have selected:Charismatic/Pentecostal/Catholic. Please note, I am not a paying member of this site. I may or may not become one in the future.
