Honoring My Parents.

" Honor your Father and your Mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12

My Dad - Alfredo or Fred or Grandpa/Popps!

I can remember when I was a little girl and waiting for my daddy to come home from work. That was my favorite part of the day, days then seemed like weeks. When he would come home we had a ritual, I would help him take off his work boots, I would unlace every single whole. I knew that my Dad worked really hard for all of us, and that was the least I can do, besides listening.

I also remember when I was the only girl for a short while before my little sisters came and my oldest was away in Texas. I have to say I really was a Daddy's girl. He would take me shopping and buy me whatever I wanted of course my Mom hated that, but I loved it.

I can say that my Father is a Hero. When we were younger we lived in Ontario, Ca and on a busy street one afternoon on a Sat we were playing in the living room and all of a sudden we here a loud "BOMB!!!!" I look out the window and there was an accident right in front of our house. There was a small truck over turned with smoke coming out. It was scary......but what stuck with me was that my Dad was the first one to put on his work boots and jet outside to help. He always gave when needed. That's what I love about him. I still remember that Hero look in his eyes to go out and try to save the people from that truck that was almost on fire.

I remember feeling scared for him, thinking that he would get hurt. I prayed for him and I saw him from a distance help a littl boy get out of the truck, but he tried and tried so desperatly to get the driver out, they accutally needed to use the jaws of life to get the driver out. But I remember my Dad using all that he had to try to get that person out. He was trying to save their life and to me he has always been my Hero.

Dad you always gave me good advice especially in marriage, buying a home and just with life in general. I know I may not have seemed like I took it but I did and it will always stick with me. You and Mom have always been there for me when I needed you. Thank you training me up and teaching me all that you knew and thank you for trying your best!!!

I know that I was not an easy teenager growing up. I want to ask for forgiveness for all the bad things and hard times that I put you threw. All the running away and ditching school. I am truely and deeply sorry for all of that. I was really dumb about my choices I made. Thank you for protecting me, even though I didn't see it at the time, I see it now. I totally understand now why you where so hard on me. I know now that it wasn't because you wanted me to have a horrible life, but because you loved & cared for me and for my life and you were trying so desperatly (as I would do the same with my girls) to keep from all the evil things in the world. So I ask that if you would please forgive me for not making the right choices as a teenager?

I will forever love you Dad!!! Dad also know that Jesus Loves you and he is knocking at the door to your heart. Will you answer?

Love you Daddy!!

Love Adrienne (aka: Pepita)

My Momma - Irma

Mom, I can remember all the wonderful things you did for us kids, I don't know how you did it (by the grace of God, I'm sure)? You showed me how to cook, how to clean, how to take care of those kids, because you had lots of them, 8 to be exact.

I remember when you taught me how to make tamales, tortillas and other good mexican dishes. Those stuck with me. I remember how you used to put my hair in piggy tales, that well I didn't like, but now that I look at the pictures...I looked pretty cute. So thanks for that, oh and thank you for buying me all those beautiful dresses. I used to love to wear dresses and dress up and play with dolls.

My mom is my Hero too. Raising us kids on a budget was not easy. It was tough, we had alot of tough times together, but you always got us threw them and I praise you for that. I remember the time when it was Christmas and we were so poor but you still managed to get us gifts and I thought you were always amazing for that. You never seized to amaze me!!

Mom, I too would like to ask you for forgiveness for all the tough times I put you through. I really did not make the right choices and I thank you for keeping your feet down. For standing up for what you believe in, for not giving in to me and for not giving up on me. You showed me you loved me, even though I thought you hated me (that was Satan, I know now). I understand now why you raised me the way you did, it was out of Love and I just want to thank you and honor you for doing that and sticking to it. It paid off I hope and pray.

I love you Mamma!!!
Love your daughter in Christ Jesus!!

I am so blessed and honored to have the 2 of you as my parents, the Lord knew what he was doing by hooking us up together. I wouldn't have asked for any other parents, you guys did an awesome job with what you had and I love you greatly for that. Thank you for sticking in through the good times and the bad. See I didn't turn out so bad did I?

I love you Dad & Mom

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

What me and my Family Believe

What We Believe
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be spiritual! Therefore we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be inspirational! Therefore we give a great place to music in our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our services, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshipped.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be fruitful! Therefore we look for His love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshipping Him.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
