Hi, my name Sandy Turner. I am originally from North Carolina, I lived there for 36 years; South Carolina for 2 years. In 2002, I moved to Kentucky, this is home.
I was looking for a place to volunteer, that I could serve the Lord and be a part of the team. I tried a few places but nothing worked out. Then one night my church was at the WDFB Fall Share-A-Thon. I was listening and thought, that would really be a neat place to volunteer. I didn't know if there was anything I could do at a radio station, but I had to see. I came out to talk with everyone. As soon as I walked through the door I knew this is where I wanted to be. I have been volunteering at WDFB for almost three years now, I'm not only a part of a team, but I became part of a family. I know this is where I'm supposed to be.
I can volunteer because of my disability, which is Cerebral Palsy. I didn't start to try to walk until after the age of two. After that I couldn't stand or walk without holding on to furniture. Walking is still a problem, I have to use crutches now. CP affects people in different ways, some can't walk, talk or even communicate. I am very blessed, I can talk and understand just fine; the CP just affects my walking.
I had three surgeries for my CP over the years, the first at age three, the second at age eight and the third at age sixteen. I was in a cast from my hips to my toes each time. We always did them in the summer so my schooling wasn't affected. I went to public school. I graduated from high school and went to one year of college. I was then and still am, a very determined person.
I was saved when I was eight in a Baptist church that I went to until my senior year in high school. My mom always made sure I was in church. It was just mom and me, as she was a single parent.
My mom passed away when I was 19. I have been on my own (with Jesus) since then. The Lord has always taken care of me.
I like to talk one on one with people, enjoy making cards, having cakes made for people, going to church (Herrington Lake Pentecostal Church where Larry Holbrook is my pastor), going out to eat and spending time with friends.
My responsibilities here at WDFB are very important to me and include putting the Family Altar prayer requests on the internet and praying as I put them on. It is such an honor to pray for people. Other responsibilities include some programming, editing sermons, Share-A-Thon DVDs and promos. Lois & I share the responsibility of keeping most of the daily programs updated. Needless to say I never run out of things to do.
The ministry of WDFB has become a huge part of my life. I truly have become a part of the family here. I am truly thankful for that. It has given me a way to serve my Lord that I never dreamed of. I have made so many wonderful friends by being here.
There are many things that make me smile. I enjoy seeing the beauty of the flowers in the Spring & Summer and the leaves in the Fall on the Knobs. It shows the beauty of the Lord.
