A Little Girl on Barbados Hearing the Gospel from Her Mother
Deborah’s great-grandmother recalls her mother preaching the gospel to her on the island of Barbados. She writes:
“Some of my Mothers favorite verses were:
Perfect love casteth out fear.
Godliness with contentment is great gain.
Having food and raiment therewith be content.
Let the words of my mouth, and the mediation of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight, Oh Lord, my strength and my redeemer.
As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.
How well I remember how she used to sit and tell us children of God’s simple plan of salvation!”
