About Me

Hello everybody! My name is Tiffany. I was born in Tallahassee, FL. I had a torn life. My parents had run off and eloped at a Kenny Rogers concert. My parents accidentally got pregnant with me. When I came into the picture it didn’t help matters. They try to stay together. It was just too bad of environment with all the physical violence that was going on. I can remember some of those nights. I was only about 2 1/2 or 3 years old. Shortly after that my parents got divorced and my mom and I moved in with my grandparents. My mom had a  lot of problems she tried the best she could. My grandpa was a Baptist preacher. I at a very early age learned how to take care of myself. I was very independent I didn’t need help from anybody. I learned to do things, that some women will not do. I wanted to do everything on my own. My grandma was a teacher  at a Christian school. My mom never did go to church or anything. She always sent me with my grandparents. She also didn’t want me to experience life and all the temptations so she sent me to school with my grandma. My mom was always trying to be my friend instead of the mother I needed her to be. I was always the responsible one in the relationship. I always took care of her. She worked and then came home. She stayed in the bed a lot and was severely depressed. She had a lot of anger and rage built up. Over all she wasn’t a happy person and didn’t enjoy her life. She met a man at the daycare she was working at when I was 4 years old. He had been married before and had 2 children, a boy and a girl ,both were older than me. They begin to date and dated for  8 years. When I was 12 years old they got married. We then moved. I started a different Christian school in which my grandma was a teacher at. I wasn’t living my life, like I should have been. I had always watched movies that a Christian shouldn’t be watching and listening to secular music (most was very bad). I started to smoke cigarettes a little. I was lying and sneaking out the house and going places where nobody would have ever know I was at if something would have happened.I was out stealing.I begin to drink alcohol. Then on my 15th Birthday, I was tired of filling empty and alone so I decided to have sex. I lost my virginity to a guy that was way older than me. Later on down the road when we weren’t together, he ended up raping me in my own house. In which my mother didn’t believe me because she like him and thought he was a nice guy. So then, I began to have sex and drink all the time. I was given a gun once by a boyfriend that I had. My parents didn’t even know that I had it in my closet. I would go and sit in my closet with that gun and think about pulling the trigger and ending my life. I didn’t date the best type of guys. Then in October 2000, I was laying down in bed one night and I prayed to God and asked Him to show me the name of the man I was going to marry on a book (just his first name) and that when I met him I would instantly know it.  That very night God answered my prayer,even though He was in no way obligated to because I was a sinner. He showed me the name ANTHONY written on a scroll/type book and God’s hands were holding it. So, there was hope in me that drove me to live and seek happiness. A friend of mine knew this guy and she liked him but she knew that he only liked her as a friend. Well one day she calls me on three-way and it’s her and that guy and his name is ANTHONY. We talked several times him and I. Then in November we met for the first time at a High School Football game. The moment I laid eyes on him I knew that he was the one God had showed me. So, we started dating. Surprisingly enough we didn’t even kiss until we had been dating for about 2 months. Then soon after we began to have sex. He was  not the kind of boy you really bring home to mama and daddy but I did and they didn’t like him. He was bad news and always in trouble with the law. He was in a gang (in whom I want mention on here). He was selling and doing drugs and drinking. He was cocky and a lady’s man. But still, I knew he was the one and I was so in love with him. He was in love with me. He asked me to marry him after we had been dating a year. We hit a few patches that we split up for a couple of weeks, but we always got back together. Then when I was 16, I was out with him at his house, we were laying in bed cuddling and talking and we talked about starting a family and if we were ready to have a baby and we agreed that we were. My family didn’t want us to get married they absolutely hated him. So, we started trying to conceive a child. It was not long after my 17th Birthday that I found out that I was pregnant. I knew I was pregnant before the signs were there. I told my fiance at the time and he was so happy. We both were. I managed to keep it a secret for 3 months. Then we decided that we wanted to move up the wedding date and that this would be a good enough reason for my parents to allow it. So we told them and they signed the papers for us to get married. We got married on April 2, 2002. It wasn’t until after we got married that I really knew just how into the drugs and gang life my now husband was. We went through some stuff, especially on the gang side of things. I mean cause now me and our baby were involved and were being put in danger at every turn.My husbands set king and dq came and stayed with us awhile. Then the set king asked my husband if he would like to take over and become set king so he could retire. It was at this point that my husband decided not pursue the gang life no more and told him no. His set king then told him that he could retire his colors and it not be held again him, so he did just that. In September 2002 we had some friends over and they had been drinking , I didn’t I was pregnant still. Well I will tell you that we had a physical violent relationship when we got angry. He had some much rage and hate in him. Well we had got into an argument and drug me down the street by my hair. Then he walked off and told me to go get a beer from upstairs in the apartment, so I went up and my friend came to check on me. About that time his friend come up yelling that my husband has cut his hand. I said a few choice words at the time and didn’t think too much about it. My husband was a cutter and I thought maybe he just cut a little too deep or something. I get downstairs and there is blood all down the stairs and on the glass door. I walk outside and he is covered in blood I throw down the beer and we get in the car. He had punched a plated glass window and it cut him when he was pulling out his hand( he use to always punch glass and this had never happened before). He was bleeding to death and he was in sin and he was calm and didn’t ask for God. He didn’t even believe in God. On the way to the hospital, which was like maybe 2 or 3 blocks from our apartment, all he said was I’m dying and I love you and tell our son that I love him and I’m sorry. At the hospital they said if we would have gotten there a minute later he would have been dead. It had cut his wrist from side to side and to and through some of the bone. It cut all the tendons and nerves. We had our first son on November 23,2002.  About three months later, my husband had overdosed on drugs and was laying in bed. This time he was conscious, he said I am dying. He was turning gray. About that time He said he heard God tell him this is your last chance son either serve me or don’t . He told God I haven’t ever heard you until now but I will choose to serve you. My husband was having a heart attack until he accepted Jesus Christ in his heart right then. He went to his brother who was a preacher and he prayed us through it. We went to the hospital to check it out. My husband felt like he was having a heart attack for 3 days , God was just reminding him. We both had gotten saved and we started to go to a little country pentecostal church. We got baptized and dedicated our son to God. We sought after the baptism of the Holy Ghost but didn’t receive it. We had started to notice weird things at our house. Locked doors would be unlocked and cracked open enough for someone to get through. Got messages on the answering machine that didn’t register and didn’t click on or off and had noises that weren’t from the world and then a demonic tongue came over and delivered a message to us. It was creepy we didn’t know nothing about the spiritual world and all. Then one night I heard someone who wasn’t there in our house and we saw the demon that use to live inside my husband. My husband had been demon possessed. He had 2 main demons before God took them out of him. We were complacent Christians. We decided that we wanted another child. On December 20, 2004 , we had our second son. Three months later we had been going through some problems and all. The devil knew this and knew that we weren’t where we should have been in our Christian walk and threw up temptation. You see I had an unfaithful/lust spirit before I got saved. He put someone there in my path and I fell right into it. I left my husband and we were separated for about 1 year. During this year I hit rock bottom. I had started smoking pot, doing cocaine, and popping ecstasy pills on top of drinking non-stop.I knew I had done wrong and was still doing wrong. I knew God and that He loved me. I missed my husband and my family. I had wanted to kill myself so many times during that year. I keep a knife on me so if I wanted to I could. But, God would never allow it every time I would try I would just break down crying and cry out to Him. My husband and I did get back together. We loved each other more than before. We still weren’t living right when we got back together. We got pregnant about 4 months after we got back together.  We were shocked we had not been planning on having another baby at that time, we were going to wait. About the time we had our daughter, we decided to give our lives back over to God, we had been feeling Him pulling at our hearts.On May 4.2007 the Lord blessed us with our daughter. We were saved and living what we thought was a Christian life until one night God put a spark in us that had never been there before. We went to Opp, Alabama and heard this prophet talk. It was then that we began to be on fire for God. We were called to another church then the one we were at. Soon after about a month or two, my husband and I received the baptism of the Holy Ghost. We have gotten deeper and deeper in love with God. We have grown so much spiritually. God has given my husband and I a ministry as well. It is a street ministry. It’s called Born Again Ministries. We have been used mighty so far in God. We have helped deliver some people out of bondage from unclean spirits. We have cast out devils, help heal people on the spot of sickness and disease. We have led some to Christ Jesus. This was pretty much my testimony and I shortened it up and just highlighted. But if you are going through something and need to talk please email me and I will get back with you and I will pray for you. God Bless!

      We as believers must seek after the baptism of the holy ghost. It is a must to our daily walk and makes it a bit easier to resist things and recognize things. I will pray that you receive it. God Bless.

      It is not an easy journey and we can backslide an fall on our faces. There are times when it seems like our prayers are not answered it usually means that either what we are praying isn’t meant to be at that time or we are being tested. I will pray for you and strength.
