My Testimony

Those of you who knew me in school or at IBM or ISS may be amazed at how I've changed. I'm not referring to physical appearance. I'm talking about my attitude, happiness, outlook on life, health -- that kind of stuff. I've done many things I'm not proud of. I've even been the date from hell at least once. My biggest life-long problem has been controlling my temper and dealing with anger.

While at the University of Alabama, an ex-girlfriend told me "you sure are an angry young man." That was an eye opener. I struggled to change myself for years but had no success.

Somewhere in the early 2000's I started hanging out with a better crowd. Three men in particular had a great impact on me: Eric Smith, Garry Holton, and Carl Jameson. I met these guys at the Atlanta Street Baptist Church. They pointed me back to Christ. I turned my anger problem over to God by renewing my dedication to Jesus Christ. Since then life has been fantastic.

I thought life was good before, but I never knew how great it could be. I couldn't see what I was missing. I'm much more easy going now; full of peace. I'm much happier.
