Everything was so dark. My social life was a zero, I had two close friends. At home, I slept, ate, drank, watched T.V. and talked on the phone in my room.  Once I went into my room I never left, unless I was leaving the house.  One night while I was asleep I dreamed I was watching a lady just standing there as she sang the most beautiful church song you ever wanted to hear.  As I listened tears streamed down my face. All of a sudden she stopped, turned, and looked at me, and said" Michelle, I know things are pretty bad right now, but if you will just hold on, God is going to turn everything around.
At the age of 16 my hunger for God was growing more and more.  This must be where the answers are at.  I started attending my family church.  This is where everybody went as far back as my great, great grandparents (on my mom's side).  My hunger for God was growing. I would walk a half mile to church on Sundays for weeks.  Although I felt nothing happening different in my life I continued to go there and pray to the Lord.  After a while there was a tug in my heart. I knew I needed to get baptized.  There was a burning in my heart to do so. I couldn't figure out why and no one could explain to me.  All I knew I was a very important step. I was so excited. I remember stepping into that water and the deacon said" Michelle upon confession of your faith I now baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. I went under and came up wet and MAD! I was mad at everybody and God. My life did a complete turn around. I was worse than before.  Problems, just piled on top of each other. This went on for several years.
In Oct 1990, at the age of 20, I saw my second miracle…my son, Willie, (10 months) had just got out the hospital. I stood there in my home preparing to get his medicine.  I looked up and said, Lord! I'm sick of living like this.  I don't want this type of life any more. I know things are so much better with you.  If I could just find me a church that I could go to (not the kind that I went to before because I didn't help me.) I will walk every Sunday. I know things are better with you. I picked up my purse walked outside my door and this guy by the name of Bro. David Walker ran up to me and said, "sister, sister, we are having a youth revival tonight, would you like to come?" So shocked I said " church I'll be there! How far is it?" He said "don't worry my wife and I will came and get you."  I went to church that night and a gentleman named Bro. Carl preached on chains and how his life had been shackled by the devil.  And that it took the Lord to set him free. At the end of the message he did an altar call. I went up expecting to shake his hand. But he said "no sister this is where we talk to God." I stood there at the altar with tears streaming down my face. I was overwhelmed by the peace that I felt. After I finished praying he walked  back up to me and said "sister you have been BAPTIZED?"  I said "yes". He said  "in the name of Jesus" He said, "I don't know what you're talking about. He said "let me see you your Bible" ( He used the one I had gotten from the family church) He showed me Matthew 28:19 and said read
It read" go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost". I looked at him and he said is there an "s" behind the name. "No" He said, "Father, son and Holy Ghost are just titles, not the name.  Jesus said I come in my Father's name. And if you have seen me you have seen the father the father, so what's the father's name?" " Jesus" I said.  "Jesus is known as the Son, so you know that the name is Jesus. Jesus says I will send the comforter back in my name, which is the Holy Ghost so you know that's Jesus". Sister do you understand what this is saying. " No" I said (because this was not what I
