About Me – Prostitute or harlot, whatever you want to call me, I’m a sinner – plain and simple. But my sinful past is redeemed by the grace of God. Amid the idolatrous Canaanites in Jericho, I believe in the one true God. Therefore I am a new creation!
Blog Excerpt –
Opportunity was knocking. Two spies from Israel stood on my doorstep.The time had come to put my devout faith to the test.
I had a choice. I could turn the spies over to the king’s men or hide them. Without a second thought, I directed the pursuers to the roads that lead to the ford of the Jordan, away from the spies hidden on the roof of my home in Jericho. The lies flowed easily off my tongue. I betrayed my country, but I was loyal to God.
God repaid my loyalty by sparing my family when Israel brought the walls of Jericho down. As I leave Jericho behind, I leave my former profession behind as well. In Israel, I will continue to put my faith to work in honor of the Almighty God, who is my shepherd leading me back into the fold.
