My Story

I was raised in a Christian home. My mom’s side of the family consisted of many missionaries. My dad’s side of the family consisted of many farmers. We were in church every given opportunity. I was saved at the age of 7. I became a church pianist around 14 years of age.

I wandered away from the Lord when I was 17 and discovered boys. I moved away from home, still went to school and worked to pay the bills, but kept walking away from the Lord. I had created an idle of boys, sex and pornography, while still going to school and working full time. I finally married.

After re-marrying, I came back to the Lord because my Grandma and Aunts had been praying for me. He rescued me from despair and hopelessness and restored me to worshipping and leading worship. He reconciled me and made me clean and new and rebuilt me. It was not immediate, but as I have put in the work of Bible study and prayer and fasting, God has draen me close to Him. Now I play for Him, serve Him and jusy enjoy time alone with Him in my hectic life. I see His blessings daily and am so very grateful. God is everything!!!! He is perfect!!πŸ˜€β€

  1. Tonya, thanks for sharing.
    I note that you mention that your loved ones were praying for you when you temporarily had wandered away.
    It once again demonstrates the power of intercessory prayer.
    With the experiences I’ve had, it makes me want to pray for the lost, as I was prayed for.
    Truly the Lord restores and ‘rebuilds’ us. Praise His holy name. πŸŒΌπŸ€—
