About the Book

I thought I knew him.  I thought I was filled with his Holy Spirit.  After all, I had been raised in a pentacostal church for over 23 years.   I had served faithfully on every committee you can think of.  I was even ordained at the young age of 18, and it was after all this, “that I thought I knew him”. 


In the spring of 1992, I was coming home from another boring Sunday church service.  My heart was broken, I actually felt worse on the drive home than I did on the drive there.  Tears streaming down my face I could not understand why I did not feel renewed.  After all is this not why we go to church?  As I pulled the car in the front yard, it seemed as if I was a time bomb just waiting to explode.  When all of a sudden with one question from my oldest son sent me into a rage.  All of my frustrations from that Sunday service, came pouring out of me.  Words not fit for the ears of sailors on a pirate’s ship, let alone the innocent ears of young children that had been raised in church all of their lives.

To see the surprised look on their faces was more than I could bear.  You see at that time in my life I had 5 children.  My oldest three children were 14,13,12  and my younger two were 6 and 4 years of age.  Never before had they ever heard me use such lanquage.  Profanity; oh that kind of language, if you can call it that was not apart of my vocabulary.   I have always dispised people who felt the need to express themselves in such a way.  People who vocabulary was so limited until they could not express themselves without making you feel bad, and here I was “sister hollier than thou” using profanity.  This was a shock even to me.  But it was at that moment that I realized that I no longer knew God.  Can you imagine how I must have felt? 


Shaken like Sampson after Delilah had manipulated him into telling her where his strength lies.  When she called out to him and said; Sampson the Phillistines be upon thee.  Can you just imagine?
