VV Baptism Testimonies

Lisa Brandt

My parents taught me the importance of God through my childhood years.  I was baptized as a baby.  For many years, I walked by sight and not by faith.  I started to reject God from about the age of 17 to 23. 

When I met my husband in 1999, his family re-introduced me to a new relationship and to the Seeker’s Bible.  I was devoted to reading it every night. When I completed it, I accepted Jesus Christ into my life in 2000. I prayed to Him alone in my bedroom.  I wish I could say as of that moment I changed my life completely.  Even though I was a much better person, I was still not attending church on a regular basis or putting God first. 

About 4 years ago, my friend asked me to join TLBS.  This is when I was completely transformed from the inside out.  I consider her my “world changer.”  I have been attending TLBS and HDC for 4 years now.  I am truly happy and content with placing God first in my life.  The strength He provides me can only be God sent! I love God with a full heart.  I desire to live for Him and set a positive example for my 5 kids and my husband.  I trust that God will always forgive my sins and will keep me on the path to meet my heavenly Father in heaven.

I am proud to say that I live by faith and not by sight. I would like to end my testimony with my favorite bible verse.  “For I know the plans I have for you” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” Jeremiah 29:11
