Stacey’s story was produced by the Evangelical Alliance with the support of

There was no talk of Jesus, there was no talk of a God of love
Nothing like that at all
Just became very regimental and I just wasn't being fulfilled
Hi, I'm Stacey and this is my story
Before I became a Christian, I would have been a very outgoing type of person
I was working from the age of 15 trying to get along with me exams at school but never really any interest there
I was brought up in a non
Christian household
I lost two boys who would be 19 and 18 now
I just struggled with grief
I was just overwhelmed by the loss and I didn't know how to cope with it
I was married at the time and I put a lot of strain on my marriage
Every day was just a struggle
I closed myself off from my family and my friends and just found that I didn't know where to turn, I didn't have the answers to those 'why' questions
Why did this happen to me
What did I do wrong
Was there a way I could fix it
And Jehovah's Witnesses just happened to call on my door and they quoted a scripture from Revelation 21, three and four which said there would be no more pain and suffering in the world, so from that I went to study with them three nights a week and started going to all the meetings
Was baptised but my heart just wasn't in that
I just felt that there was no talk of Jesus, there was no talk of a God of love, nothing like that at all
Just became very regimental and I just wasn't being fulfilled
I decided to leave after an amount of time being there and I took a job, Moms and Tots in a local church and started to attend a meeting there
After three or four meetings, then I felt that I did have a presence of somebody who loved me, who wanted to know me and I became a Christian then through a talk that a guy had given there
Now I'm a more confident person, I'm happy, I feel loved, I feel forgiven
I wasn't the failure that I thought I was
I've found my identity in Jesus now and I've two girls that I just am totally blessed to have
