Lead singer of the band Flyleaf, Lacey Mosley,
tells her amazing story of grace and healing
Mosley, born in Texas, 1981, grew up in a
fatherless household with 5 siblings, leading to a tumultuous life of
drugs, anger and depression. When a fight she had with her mother led
to the police being called, teenaged Mosley was forced to move out and
live with her grandparents in Mississippi.
Completely cut off from her old life, she
hit rock bottom, beginning plans for suicide. Mosley's grandmother saw
the girl's distress and pleaded for her to attend church. That first
church service changed Mosley's life forever.

I always like to
start out by making sure everyone knows that I'm one of those GRITS
girls....Girls Raised In The South… and I am telling
you that for a reason. Even though I've lost most of my accent, and
believe me I have, because when I first moved to Oklahoma, people would
say things like “let me hear you say so and so again. Then they'd
practically roll in the floor laughing when I said whatever. So
even though I've lost most of my accent, I still use different terms
for things than some of my Oklahoma friends do. For
example, they go out and start their cars; I crank mine. They go to the
grocery store and find a parking place, I find a park. They go into the
grocery store and get a shopping cart; I get a buggy! By the way, just for my own information,
how many of you get a buggy?
Rick Derringer's testimony
As written by Rick Derringer
I went to Catholic school through the
eighth grade. They taught me many good things. They told me I could go
to the confessional and ask for forgiveness. Most often the priest
would tell me to say six "Our Fathers" and six "Hail Marys" for the
repentance of my sins. But he didn't stress that I shouldn't sin in the
first place, and he didn't encourage me to say thank you to the Lord!
In 1962, I began secular public high school
and started a "garage band" called The McCoys. That's also the year I
started thinking less about the Lord.
As a Fatah Fighter and sniper,
Taysir Abu Saada (Tass) learned to hate Jews. When he left the Middle
East to come to America, he hated serving the predominantly Jewish
patrons at the French restaurant he managed. But that changed the day
