Little Trailer

Christian and I became real good friends, and soon after that, we started dating. We only saw each other when Christian drove over 100 miles up from where he was living to see his mother. And he now drove that far to see me as well. A short time went by and we wanted to spend more time together to get to know one another, and I wanted to know more about the true Jesus.
I left my parents house after living there for four months and moved closer to where Christian lived. I moved into a little travel trailer that was on Christians vacant land while he lived at a friends farm house. Christian would come and pick me up in the morning and drop me off at night everyday. It wasn't easy for me to stay in that little trailer. There was no running water, electricity, or propane gas for heating and cooking. There was a bed with a roof and that was about it. Although, those things were not too bad to deal with, it was the dark quiet nights by myself that were difficult. I spent a lot of waking hours weeping and praying. The upside to all of that was that I now had hope for me and my kids through the grace and love of Jesus Christ.
I did a lot of spiritual searching during the few months I lived in that little trailer. I also expressed a lot of anger to God and Christian, because I had been deceived, lied to, and brain washed for all those years living with my parents and Convert. The Mormon way of life is so false. The church gives a persona of wholesome living, but that is just the rose petals covering the thorns.

What an astounding change for you to get away from Mormonism and develop a relationship with Jesus Christ. On the one hand you were living pretty low on the hog, but on the other you were high on life due to the freedom gained by faith in the one, true Jesus Christ. I can't wait to read more.

Thanks for reading dave. I Jesus Christ is what keeps me going. Life does get better. Material things are not important in my life, just keeping my eye towards the goal.

About Me

I spent a lot of time deciding if I should write this blog or not. I'm not a great writer and I'm not going to pretend to be. I need to share what I have learned and I might not make some people happy with what I am saying. This blog is a way for me to release the thoughts and feelings that come with knowing I grew up in the wrong religion. A healing process if you will.

How To Read This Blog

Please start with the month of February 2007 and read backwards. This is the most effective way to understand, in order, why I say what I do.

Handmaidens Creed

1.I believe in God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit as one God without beginning or end.
2.I believe the Bible to be the Holy Inspired word of God with full truth and righteousness. No other writing is.
3.I believe that the work of the Lord comes first. Before any temporal thing or person.
4.I believe that grace is a gift and Christ gives that gift freely to all who believe.
5.I believe that the beauty of a woman is contained inside of her and not by what she looks like on the outside.
6.I believe that marriage is sacred and represents the Godhead on earth; two are one just as three are one.
7.I believe that love is more powerful than any other power. Remember, God is love.
8.I believe that tithing is not a part of God's new covenant, free will offerings are. And that doesn't mean just money.
9.I believe that the Aaronic, Levitical, and Melchizedek priesthoods are abolished and Christs Holy Priesthood whom Christ is the "Great High Priest" is eternal.
10.I believe that every believer is a priest in the "Priesthood of Believers".
11.I believe that when two are one, nobody is to separate the one.

14.I believe that liars make fools out of others and the liar hates the fool.
15.I believe that all believers are in authority to preach the gospel.
16.I believe that the word 'organization' to describe Christs body is evil and has no place with God.
17.I believe the Americas are not the land of Zion and Christ will return to His origonal land-Israel in the Middle East.
18.I believe that God has set out correct ways of worshiping Him, not man.
19.I believe in holding to the truths of the Bible and not mans understanding of it.
20.I believe that the world is full of evil and Satan can easily gain control over the minds of those who do not profess Christ of the Bible to be their only Messiah.
21.I believe that Saints are those who know the real Savior, Jesus Christ, of whom the Bible speaks of; not the jesus of a cult.
