Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Fathers house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that were I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know and the way ye know. John 14:1-4 (King James Version)

A Journey with Jesus is a collection of poems inspired by God for the journey to know Him more. It was April 1972, two weeks before Easter that my father died. My world crumbled…..I knew there had to be a deeper faith. My journey began as I intentionally sought to know Him through Bible study and in reading His Word. The following Easter, I realized with deeper understanding, that Jesus’ death was God’s unmerited gift to me. I understood the paradox of death….. A terrible loss but also, a gift. The death of Jesus brought the gift of eternal life; my dad’s death led me on a journey to understand the magnitude of God’s great gift. My journey with Jesus began in 1972 and continues today. I believe that as you read these poems in your own quiet time, you too, can hear the voice of the “Good Shepherd” and become that little lamb who loves the shepherd.

Adapted from Journey of Decision, a Way of the Cross for adults, this children's Way engages children by having them actively participate. Fourteen readers represent characters from the passion of Jesus. Suggestions are given at the outset for props or symbolic costumes that achieve a two-fold purpose: they draw children into the story, thus helping them follow along. As in the original Journey on which this children's adaptation is based, the text combines the traditional with the innovative. It asks children to journey with Jesus not just during this Way of the Cross but during every day of their lives.

A Biographical Sketch about the Author Loyce Agnew McCullough was born in West Memphis, AR December 24, 1942. Her parents were Odell and Fredericka Agnew. She grew up in Jonesboro, AR and attended Booker T. Washington High School there. She graduated #4 in her class. Loyce gave her life to Christ at age 11 as her mother taught her that she must be born again. She began to seriously study Gods Word at age 16 and discovered that the LORD would be her teacher in every subject in school. As a result of making that discover she began making the honor roll. Loyce went to Philander Smith College, in Little Rock, AR where she met Dorsey McCullough, a minister in training. Loyce later went to Shorter College, North Little Rock, AR, Wilberforce University, Wilberforce, OH, and returned to Philander Smith College after getting married to Rev. Dorsey McCullough. They both graduated together after their first three children were born: Victor, Micah and Louisa (twins). Later, she graduated from the University of Washington with a Masters degree in education. In the state of Washington, she had three more children: Frederick, Dorceia, and Milton. She worked with her husband, as he served a pastor of seven churches within African Methodism. She served as Young Peoples Director of the Kansas-Nebraska Conference Branch W.M.S, where over 70 people gave their lives to Jesus. She also became Conference Branch President for the Kansas-Nebraska Conference and the Puget Sound Conference. She served later as the Fifth Episcopal District chairperson over the Scholarship Committee. Many young people received scholarships for the enhancement of their education Loyce has also taught in the following school districts in the following cities: Seattle, WA, Bremerton, WA, Wichita, KS, and in Portland, OR. She has also tutored many children in the various churches where her husband, Rev. Dorsey McCullough was appointed pastor, especially at Brookins AME Church, Oakland, CA and Ebenezer AME Church in Stockton, CA. Sis. Loyce worked with the Rev. Dr. Dorsey McCullough, the founder, pastor and teacher of New Directions Christian Fellowship (Interdenominational) Church, in Stockton, CA. She has many roles as first lady: Christian Educator, Sunday School Teacher, Missionary Supervisor, writer of brochures, tracts, etc. In September 2007, Sis. Loyce was given a dream by her heavenly father. She dreamed that she was preaching all over this particular church. She was so stunned that she did not even share this with her husband. That Friday night, they went to celebrate Pastor and Mrs. Parkers Anniversary at Wells of Living Water Community Church. The church was filled with divine love. Near the close of the service the Mistress of Ceremony asked her to sing a solo. (This lady didnt even know whether or not Sis. Loyce could sing.) The Spirit of God led her to sing He Looked Beyond My Faults and Saw My Need. The church got on fire and would not stop singing this song. She began ministering to the people, but doesnt remember what she said. To her, this whole experience was Gods calling her to preach and to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. She had never experienced such anointing before. This was indeed a wonderful, spiritual event in her life. In November, 2008, Loyce was ordained as a preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. After her husband went home to be with the Lord, (June 17, 2010) she became the pastor of their newly founded church.
