In my younger years of life my heritage; such as my family of origin did not have a negative or positive aspect with my relationship with God. My family did not really talk to me about our religion but, I knew we were Christians due to some of the spiritual figures and bibles placed around my house. I would rarely go to church with my family except on holiday’s such as; Easter and Mother’s Day. My family never baptized me or made sure that I was saved. I believe my location and my elementary school friends played a greater role with my developing relationship with God than, my family of origin in younger years of age.
Instead of facing life after death with excitement for Heaven it was faced with fear. I remember church services with screaming, running, and fear. Then as a teenager our family attended a Pentecostal Church. Attending the Pentecostal Church was not much different than the Apostolic Church. They had the same belief in life after death.
Her unquenchable thirst for speaking with the redeemer, the creator all alone is expressed in “Some Keep the Sabbath Going to Church”. She does not like to go to church with all rather she wants to be all alone with Christ in orchard. There, Bobolink, a singing bird is a chorister, orchard- a Altar and God- a Preacher. She likes to converse with Him and worship Him without any hindrance. But most of her critics commented on this poem about her escape from church services and the end of her church- going.
Early abuse and neglect left me unprepared for life. Still suffering from traumatic experiences from childhood, I failed in college. It was during college that I accepted Christ into my life; I longed for what was offered: “a personal relationship” with Him. After failing at college, I worked as a janitor for quite a few years. During this time as a janitor, I was lost and searched desperately for answers to understand life.

Ever since I first learned to think beyond what my parents taught me, I pondered the question of life. I believed my parents, in that God created all living things and that Jesus Christ died for my sins. Still, I did not want to blindly follow my parents’ belief when I bore the gift of logic. For a time, I lost myself, my purpose, in pursuit of the truth. Then came a night when my life changed.
Over the summer, I visited my father’s side of the family after not seeing them in years. As an adult, I started to learn things about my family that was too inappropriate to know as a child. While I was discovering new things about my family, I found out that the some of my father’s side of the family were Jehovah Witnesses. During the whole visit, they repeatedly were trying to persuade me into becoming a Jehovah’s Witness. Even after saying that I was not interested, they proceeded to continue to try to convert me.

When the altar call came at Children’s Church (which I rarely attended) that Sunday I made that commitment. My relationship with my family is forever growing. I have two brothers and a sister whom are biologically related to me.
