Mae McDonald turned 95 on Feb. 5 and celebrated her birthday at First Baptist Church, Alabaster, on March 13. Instead of gifts, she asked that donations be made to the Alabama Baptist Children’s Homes & Family Ministries.

Q: What was your childhood like?
A: I grew up in Columbiana, Ala., with my mother and father. [There were] eight children total. I’m the only one left now. I rode to school in a two-horse covered wagon.

Q: How did you come to know the Lord?
A: I joined the church as a child, but I really didn’t know what I was doing. I became a Christian several years later at Fourmile Baptist Church (in Wilsonville and was) baptized in a creek.

Q: How have you been involved in church through the years?
A: I’ve been a part of WMU (Woman’s Missionary Union) and have taught Sunday School at [First,] Alabaster.

Q: What have you gotten from those ministries?
A: For 30 years, I attended Woodland Avenue Baptist Church, Birmingham, a mission [of] West End Baptist Church, Birmingham. I was active in WMU … and I really enjoyed it.

Q: How do you see yourself involved in church in the future?
A: (I’ll do) whatever the Lord leads me to do.

Q: What difference has Christ made in your life?
A: He means everything to me. I couldn’t do without Him. I look forward to being at His feet one day.
