Work all day, party all night. Day after day, month after month. Then, I thought, there had to be more to life than this. I donít want do to this any more. I want more out of life. Whatís missing?

I was 26 years old, living what I thought was a normal life. I would go to work, and then I would go out every night to party with my husband. My husband was an alcoholic. It didnít seem to bother me much until I had decided I didnít want to live that life anymore. I felt there had to be more to life than this.

One day, a lady came into the office where I worked and handed me a New Testament Bible. Since I never had a Bible, I was glad to get it.

I was brought up in a Catholic Church, and I faithfully went to church every Sunday. However, I really didnít have a deep understanding of who Jesus was. I started to read the Bible, and it was as if I understood every word. It was like Jesus was speaking to me. I couldnít put it down. I would read it every chance I could.

I noticed that during this time, I started to change. My attitude started changing, and my husband started changing. My husband told me he didnít want to drink anymore. With that news, I wanted to know more and more about God.

In September of 1984, my husband, while he was drunk, went to a small church and asked the pastor to pray for him. On that very night, he was delivered from alcoholism. I knew then how real God was, and I knew Jesus had to be a part of my life. On Thanksgiving Day in 1984, while watching a Christian station, I prayed the sinnerís prayer with the preacher and gave my life to the Lord.

God has not stopped blessing me and changing me since! Glory!!! Do you want more out of life? Do you want Eternal Life?
