My name is Terri Wells. I grew up in Penfield, Pennsylvania. I will save my story of my personal walk with Jesus to share with you from the pulpit. But I will share that I did not grow up in a church going family. Both of my parents have passed on. I have one unmarried brother, who I pray for daily. I have not walked a perfect path in this life, I praise Jesus for hanging on to me and not letting me go, even when I was trying to make my own way without him. I have two sons, Keith Crawford and Jason Crawford from my first marriage. Keith is soon to be 45 and married to Lisa. They have two children Madelyn and Kodi. He is a teacher at a State Correctional Prison out east and is a former Marine and Army National Guard Veteran. My other son, Jason is 36 and married to Kim. They have two sons, Cullen and Liam and reside in Wiesbaden, Germany. He is on year 18 for the 82nd Airborne Paratroopers in the Army. Ron, my husband and I met in 2004. We married in 2006. He is my best friend. Ron has a daughter Alicia Moore. She is married to Pat and resides in NuMine with their two sons, Peyton and Tanner. Ron also has an adult special needs son, Nathan Wells who resides in a group home in Black Lick. We will have Nathan with us sometimes, because we bring him home for weekend visits through out the year.

I Pray “My heart will always be open, my ears will always listen, my arms will always hug and I pray my words will let you find your way or help you with your walk with Christ.” Amen
