    In my case the person who greatly influenced my life was not my Mother, Grandmother, or any other woman. It happens to be my Dad. When I was six my Mother left. Dad was on his own to raise my three year old brother, myself, and my nine year old sister. Dad made sure we were in church and knew about Christ’s love. Dad has always been my rock. We have been through so much together.

  15. Charissa Sketlon says

    My mother Charity, and my sisters Becky and Sarah. We’ve been through so much together, turning trials into adventures, and turning hardships into growth. We are more then just family, we are the best of friends. I thank God I have them in my life.

    Hi – My name is Sherri Gordon. In May 2011! I became a 2nd stage ovarian cancer survivor with chemo treatments ending last December 2012. It was 18 months of chemo and loosing every hair on my body. I have been a Christian since I was 16 but never knew what a life with God was truly suppose to be until I looked death in the face. Unfortunately I lost my mom to Lung Cancer 22 years ago but there is a very strong Christian woman in my life who I work with that would continually encourage me with God’s love through my cancer and through some personal battles that the devil saw fit to flood me with during the 18 months of chemo. Thank you Cindy Gibbs helping me keep the faith in the God I have loved for so many years.

I truly am Blessed. I never knew people could be this happy in a relationship because we’re so perfect for each other and it’s amazing the incredible depths we’ve reached emotionally and spiritually. I’m very fortunate to have her in my life. Today, being our 1 year anniversary, I would like to say that I LOVE her so much more than yesterday, but nothing compared to tomorrow.
