A Little MORE Chutzpah
by Joanne Sher

For those curious, here is some more info on my Embarrassed challenge entry "A Little Chutzpah."

First of all - the original story is generally true - a few details were changed, but it is mostly accurate. The character names are my and my husband's middle names - Davey is the actual name of my brother.

I ended up telling Davey at dinner that first night. He was generally indifferent to it. His response, to paraphrase was "as long as you're happy, it's fine." He also told me he had absolutely no interest in organized religion. I tried to get him to at least look into it, and I sent him home with a copy of the OT. As far as I know, he never read it. Davey basically suggested that I tell dad exactly how I'd told him.

I did end up calling my dad the next day or maybe the day after that, and gave him a somewhat abbreviated version of my "Davey speech" - nerves, you know! He was absolutely shocked, and generally devastated. He didn't really ask any tough questions - at least none I couldn't answer, an most of them were more about "technical" aspects (for instance, he asked if I had any "ceremony" that made me a Christian - I believe he was thinking baptism). We barely spoke for a year, and though our relationship is better now, we never discuss our beliefs beyond general mention of what holiday we celebrate.

If you have more questions, just ask and I'll edit this for ya! :)

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

The challenge article is good, but now that I know it was your own story - it's fascinating. I think people relate to a story so much more when they know the MC, and like her too of course. :) Thank you. You have found your Messiach, and He has found you.

This is fascinating Joanne. I remember when I was a new Christian a woman came to youth group and shared her testimony and presented a seder ceremony with us. Her testimony was very close to yours. Thank you for sharing your story with us.
