Covering Testimony: Donna McLeod

Name: Donna McLeodAge: 45Location: Chesapeake, VirginiaStarted Covering: May 2014

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

I am the wife of one wonderful man, mother to three gorgeous children. I did not grow up in the church, but approximately 7 months before I married, the Lord saved me! Fast forward to now– I’ve been married for 22 years, I have a BS in Nursing and a MS in Education, but walked away from the outside workforce to raise our children. I’m now a full-time home keeping/homeschool educating momma.

I lead two dance ministries at our church. This to me has the similar challenges as head coverings. In dance, you have to work hard to minister through movement of your body, without letting your body become the focus of what people see. With head covering, you do not want the focus to be on the covering- style/fashion.

I enjoy sewing, gardening and expanding my cooking skills. I am a reformed, big mouthed black female working hard to serve the Lord. :-) Read more

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

Hello, my name is April Cassidy. I am a very happily married wife and mother of 2 children, a part time pharmacist, a blogger at www.peacefulwife.com and an aspiring author. I accepted Christ as my Savior and Lord when I was 5 years old, when my Daddy led me to Christ.

2) Where do you attend church? Tell us a little bit about it.

We attend First Baptist Church of Columbia, SC. It is a LARGE church with an average attendance of over 2000 people. Our pastor seeks to teach from a very biblical perspective and uphold the Word of God. We have incredible diversity there. It is a downtown church, so we have people from all over the city and suburbs who worship with us. We also have a Burmese church, a Hispanic church, a special ed ministry, a deaf ministry, a ministry for the homeless, as well as strong ministries for every age group. We have been members there for 8 years now. Before that, we attended a Southern Baptist church in our town where my husband’s father was the pastor for 21 years. Read more

Covering Testimony: Crystal Moyer

Name: Crystal MoyerAge: 24Location: Bedminster, PAStarted Covering: January 2014

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

Hi, my name is Crystal Moyer! The Lord has been so gracious to me in my short 24 years, and I have seen Him work so intimately in my life that I cannot help but praise Him! I have grown up in the church, but not always a church that preaches from the Bible and so that has been frustrating and caused me to seek a church that firmly stands on the Word as  their source of Authority. I currently work as a social worker with adults who struggle with chronic mental illnesses. I am also engaged to a wonderful man of God, Christopher and we are in a long distance relationship until I will move to Texas in the fall of 2014. My heart and mind have been transformed through Christ and His work in my life both through Scripture and through Christopher and his leading of Bible studies. I enjoy theatre and have been heavily involved in both high school and college in performances and wish to get involved some time in the future. I also enjoy singing and lifting praises to our God both in public worship and private prayer times. Christopher and I are a mixed couple (he is black and I am white) and we have gotten some strong resistance from family members about this. However, through the Lord working in their hearts, things have become much more civil. I am amazed at the man God has given me to marry and I look forward to the day we will be married! The Gospel is at the core of our relationship and we seek to literally live out the picture of Christ and His Church through our marriage. We have learned a lot and have much more to learn about what that truly means. Read more

Covering Testimony: Alison Chapman

Name: Alison ChapmanAge: 44Location: Oxford, UKStarted Covering: 2010

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

My name is Alison and I come from a missionary background, growing up as a child in the Seychelles in the early 70s. I have known the Lord from an early age but perhaps with more head knowledge rather than heart. I really encountered the love of the Lord whilst training at bible college in my late 20s. That’s where the Lord radically changed me and developed within me a desire for truth and to know Him in a deeper way and to make Him known.  I have been challenged by the cost of following Jesus in everyday life and I seek to love Him wholeheartedly and somehow share the good news of Jesus. I have especially enjoyed various work opportunities overseas including time spent in Israel, a nation that the Lord has put on my heart.  I married at the age of 41, after what seemed like an arduous, sometimes painful and long wait, to a prayerful and righteous man that God had been preparing me for.  I have learned much from my husband and I have joy and appreciation in being his wife.

Covering Testimony: Michelle Yowler

Name: Michelle YowlerAge: 45Location: Allen Park, MichiganStarted Covering: Oct 2013

1) Introduce yourself to our readers.

I was baptized and confirmed at Mount Hope Lutheran Church & School. My family was know for having a EC membership, which means we attended church on Easter and Christmas, if that. After confirmation at the age of 13, like so many other Lutheran kids, I wandered away from the church. I always keep my faith in God; however, I didn’t go to church on a regular basis. I would go to any church just to get the experience, because I’ve always been fascinated with different cultures and religions. While others dreaded Sociology class in high school, I loved it. After high school, I went in Air Force where I meet and married my husband. We’ve been married for twenty-six years and have a twenty-two year old daughter. After having my daughter, I started attending church regularly and sent my daughter to Christian schools were I became very active in church service again. I currently work as a secretary for the church and school I grew up in and where my daughter attended school from preschool – 8th grade. Read more
