About the Author: Betty J Banks

It's been a long journey with many trials and tests, but through it all I've learned to put my faith in the Lord.  I was born in 1943, I am a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother.  I retired in 1999, after a career in communications-technology.  I have been a student of the Bible for twenty years.  I started writing poetry about a year ago.. My mission is to encourage everyone who will listen to study the Bible and to spread God's

word.  My poems can be used as learning tools in the way that Jesus used parables.  I was raised in a charismatic Church, I sang in the choir, I was lead singer in a group called: 'the gospel echoes.'  I left my roots and had many battles with Satan, he tried his best to destroy me.  I realized at age thirty-nine that the Lord never left me.  I have been serving Him every since.
