FEARFUL KITTEN: The Rosemary Barnes Testimony: Part 1 of 4
Pastor Rosemary Barnes was an adopted child. God gave her a wonderful set of Christian parents, but as she grew into her teenage years and then into adulthood, her longing for affection and attention from males placed her into a life-style that was pulling her further and further into spiritual compromise.
