My Testimony...

My name is Yasmin and I am a New Stay at Home Mom and Wife.  Above all I am a Christian woman and my prayer is to grow closer to God and let my life speak of His wonderful mercy and grace.  I was far from perfect before Christ saved me.  As a teenager I was lost in this world doing worldly things.  As a wife I wrecked my marriage and tore down our home.  As a woman I was a short-tempered, sarcastic, gossiping, insecure person who was in search of something.  Before I came to Christ I tried many different religions, but none left me feeling fulfilled - I was always looking for the next one.

Then early one morning as I was getting ready for work, I heard a woman on TV talking about Jesus.  Her voice and her experience just really called out to me and I began watching Joyce Myers almost every morning - I couldn't get enough of what she was talking about.  After a few weeks, I repeated the sinners prayer with her and confessed Jesus as my Lord and Savior.  I found a Bible based church and went the following Sunday.  When I walked into the church the Praise & Worship team was singing Amazing Grace (a song I had heard many times throughout the years)… but that morning it felt as if God were speaking to me, telling me that I was a lost wretch… but He found me and He would give me sweet sweet grace.  I couldn't stop crying - I was home in God.
That was about 3.5 years ago and since then I've been just learning and growing in the Word of the Lord.  My marriage has been restored, my two girls and I have been baptized, my husband recently committed his life to Jesus as well, and God has called me to quite my job and stay home with our four children to become a homemaker.

I've been in the HR Industry for about 10 years, working my way up from assistant to system administrator.  My last position focused heavily on analyzing data and presenting my findings to the HR Leadership team as well as executives in the company.  It was a very analytical position and I enjoyed that part of it.  But after our fourth child, I felt such a heavy calling on my heart to stay home with my children that I just couldn't shake it.  This is where God wants me to be and I know this because my husband agreed to let me quit my job!  Now, my husband had been out of work for almost two years and had just found a job a few months before I came to him wanting to leave my own job. So he was very  nervous about the situation, but God put the same feeling on his heart as well!

I am passionate about my home life and try very hard to fulfill God's calling on my life.  I also try to stay active in my church and help out as much as I can. I'm still trying to find my way around this new homemaker role, but I know we will be alright because God is with us!

I pray you would join my journey and share your own experiences, passions, questions, and wisdom with me.

In Christ,
