Bio

Dearest Friend,

I call myself a “quirky Christian” in that most other Christians don’t usually get me, and this is why…

I was re-born in 1982 in my mid 20’s while careening through life trying to stay away from alcohol. Though I was in AA for two years, I couldn’t get a loving God like AA told me I needed to. Then one day, by accident, I plowed into Jesus. If you want to know how quirky, you might want to read my testimony in the ‘Testimonies’ section on one of the pages above.

For posts I write things that God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit have laid on my heart…. or spoken to me in my ear. Up to now I’ve never had anyone critique my writing so this is a totally new experience for me – and a scary one.  But I talked to my pastor about being frustrated because I had no one to share my journey with and he suggested I try this – the dreaded blog!

How quirky am I? I’m someone who came from an atheist family under the hard hand of an alcoholic, mentally ill father (I’m also alcoholic -sober- and have bipolar disorder). If you couldn’t see it, hear it, touch, taste, or smell it, it didn’t exist. Religious people  were just plain stupid.

Love was a myth. It didn’t exist in my family. In fact, until I met Jesus, I’d never tasted the delicious warmth of Love. When I first met Him, Jesus took me and enfolded me in His huge loving arms. I’ve been riding high ever since that night. Suddenly staying sober became easy. Love is truly a great healing power.

Everyone has a journey they are walking on, with stories from it to tell. These stories are one’s I’ve written mostly to catalog my journey to overcome the damage done to me growing up in this family.  I pray that the words God has placed on my heart to share with you, will bring peace, inspiration, and encouragement to your life.

**Peace & All Feloreaw  to our Great & Mighty God**

Feloreaw

A word God gave me when my pastor said he wished he had a word to use in place of  ‘fear’ …… as in …..

“Fear God”

[Heah!  quirky right?]

It is a combination of 4 words.

FE = Fear               LO = Love              RE = Reverence/Respect          AW – Awe

  3. Robin Claire, this is so beautiful and powerful. I am glad you found something that you can immerse yourself in that makes you feel good, helps you learn and grow, and also helps you fight the demons that will always be chasing you in the form of your past of alcoholism. Kudos to you for having the courage to make your thoughts public, and I hope it helps you reinforce your faith.

  4. Hi Crystal,
    I LOVE your name!! Were you born with that name? I wish I had such a wonderful reminder of my “True Love” too. Thank you for responding to my Who Am I? page. It’s always neat to hear others respond to me as a person.
    Love to you in Christ

  9. Greetings from Australia,
    I’ve been a christian for many long years. A life in Christ is a journey filled with tribulation and sorrow but tempered with peace, joy and above all humility and love. I would rather live one more day confessing that Christ is my Lord and Saviour, the Son of God that came into the world as a manifestation of his amazing love to redeem mankind, than live a lifetime crowned with the meaningless riches and titles of this world.
    God bless you………”A fellow Son of God” 🙂
