Little Jill

Little Jill was raised

by parents who were atheists.

When Jill was 3 years old her father

killed her mother in a drunken rage and

turned the gun upon himself.


This was all done in the presence of Jill.

Jill was shifted through the foster

care system and wound up with a

Church going family. The first Sunday

that Jill was in her nursery class the

teacher held up a picture of the savior

and asked the three, four and five year

olds if they knew who was in the picture.


Little Jill raised her hand and the

Sunday school teacher called on her.

"That's Jesus" stated Little Jill.

The Sunday School teacher knew that

this was Jill's first time in Church and

knew that Jill's dead parents had been atheists.

So she was surprised and questioned Jill:


"How do you know that my dear?"

asked the kindly teacher.

"Because he was the man that held me

in His arms the night my Daddy killed

my Mommy," answered sweet little Jill.
