About Me
Hello everyone!!! My name is erica, I am 24 years young. The lord has blessed me with a wonderful husband, Keith, and 4 wonderful little boys Blake who is 6, Eric who is 4, Zachary who is 2, and Christopher who is 6 months.
I am a stay at home mom and my husband is currently serving our country as a Navy Seabee.
My Testimony
My relationship with god has been somewhat of a rocky one. He has always been there for me and i have mostly been trying to find some other place to run... I grew up with a very abusive father and a mother who in my opinion was just "numb" trying to make it day by day in my fathers clutches...Growing up I heard alot about God and his glory from my GrandFather, and His Sister (Aunt Ann) but the more god would try to work through me and our family satan would work through our father and everything would get so messed up again...When i was 13 my parents were divorced and my life started to spiral out of control I started drinking and using drugs (just weed at that point), and then in search of love it was sex! It started 2 days before my 14th birthday with a 19 year old..then as i got older so did the men..by the time I was 15 i had been with more men than years i had been alive and only a handful of them were to young to buy alcohol...
i had ran away from home and was sleeping under a bridge when a 20 year old man found me and took me to his home from age 15 to 17 he hid me away from my parents and the police.. I thought wow he must realy love me.. I mean sure he hits me sometimes and he can be mean but he took care of me when no one else would... In those 2 years on the run, We managed to convince a big group of friends and family that i was a 18 year old girl named Lynn, by then i had become a heavy drinker and my drug use became my life and Crystal meth was becoming my best friend...then 3 months before my 17th birthday i found out i was pregnant.. I was so happy!!I thought "ths is it" God is giving me someone to love that will love me back.. I stopped drinking and drugs and everything and foccused on my baby, on my 17th birthday I turned myself over to the police and went to stay with my mother, I started going back to school and i promised God I was gonna get my life back on track...after talking with my babies father we had decided we were gonna get married and straighten our lifes out.. On our wedding day in a courthouse with the family that still talked to me he told me that he was only doing this beacause i left him no choice and why i didn't leave right then i don't know..But at the age of 17 my first son was born and so was I.. God had loaned me this perfect child and it was my responsibilitie to protect him and teach him.. I told my then husband that i wanted to start going to church and living our life according to Gods plan. Of course there was no way that his son or wife was going anywhere near "those kind of people" to make a long story short it took a couple more beatings and one final brush with death before god gave me the strength to leave him for good.. at that point I had a 2 year old and a baby in my belly.. I was still so lost and very far from god when Keith found me.. Now most 20 year old men would see a 19 year old girl with a 2 year old and another one on the way and would run in the other direction... Not him!! We were married 2 weeks after the birth of our second son and has been here ever since. We both knew about god and had kinda went to church here and there... but we didnt think much of it... see I didnt want to lose him by pushing religion on him ( not after what i had seen it do to men in my past) and he was thinking the same thing... then 2 years ago we moved to a new town and we got a phone call from the local pastor..Keith went to go talk with him and before he left he had made a joke about not wanting to go... he got home 2 hours later and i could tell by the look on his face that our life was going to change (for the better) two months later at a church funtion we were saved and for the first time in my life the huge burden i had carried on my shoulders was lifted and i felt free!!! I felt what true love is supposed to be and I am addicted...we are struggling daily as new christains ,parents, etc. but with the lord on our side we can make it over any mountain and through every valley
