I was born March 25, 1943, followed by Stanley Thomas on July 2, 1944, then Jeremiah Jr. on August 18, 1948, to Jeremiah and Ada Lee Schock. I am grateful for a Mother who taught me how to give, and so grateful for a Savior, who taught me how to live. I accepted Jesus at 13, I remember Mom saying, if there is something you want to do, do it now, tomorrow may never come. That faith and philosophy has carried me through life. Mom’s words, as I would tell her something good that had happened were. “See honey, that angel is still on your shoulder. I have watched him work things out for you that would never work for anyone else.” I am more blessed than anyone I know. God made me an encourager and a prayer warrior. Today my only prayer for me is: Lord, help me be what I should be for You, so I can be what I need to be for others.
