(Minghui.org) I am a Falun Dafa practitioner who lives in a rural area. I used to read Falun Dafa books and cultivate in Dafa. After I got married, due to the persecution, my husband was afraid and didn’t allow me to practice Dafa. It has been over ten years since I stopped cultivating.

My husband died in a car accident a few years ago, leaving behind our son and myself.

I recently re-married. My current husband and I live in the same village, and he has a seven-year-old son. Our sons are three years apart in age. My parents told me to take care of his son as I do my own child.

My mother cultivates Falun Dafa. She told me to be kind and tolerant to everyone. I promised her that I would do well, as I used to cultivate in Falun Dafa.

When my first husband passed away, I was so shocked and upset that my period suddenly stopped. I went to many places for treatment, but nothing worked.

My mother told me that only Dafa could help me recover. I knew that I would be fine as long as I sincerely cultivated Dafa and followed the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance.

Perhaps Master gave my mother a hint to persuade me to return to Dafa cultivation. As a result, I returned to Dafa.

Our family has lived happily since I married my current husband. Our two children get along very well. I follow the principles of “Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance” and there is no difference in how I treat my husband’s son and my own.

I am very patient with our children, and I take care of everything at home very well. This way, my husband doesn’t need to worry about our home while at work. All the villagers have said that my husband married a virtuous wife.

We all know that it is not easy to be a stepmother, especially since nowadays children are pampered and willful. I thus taught our children to follow the Dafa principles, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance, so they learned how to behave and get along with their parents.

My stepson tells me everything that happens in school. No one can tell that I am his stepmother.

I know I can handle this well because I cultivate in Dafa. Master tells us to be good people, and consider others first, so as to attain the righteous enlightenment of selflessness and altruism.

My mother-in-law also knows “Falun Dafa is good.” She was paralyzed and had trouble walking. My mother told her to sincerely recite “Falun Dafa is good.” She did, and now walks much better then she used to.

My mother was persecuted for distributing truth clarification materials, so my in-laws were very afraid. They didn’t allow me to distribute truth-clarification materials, worrying that I would affect their grandson’s education.

My father-in-law often said bad things about Dafa. I later told my husband and in-laws about my changes since cultivating Dafa.

I told them how I take care of the entire family very responsibly, and that these are all blessings as a result of cultivating in Dafa. They subsequently no longer object to my Dafa cultivation, and my husband is especially supportive.

Since my father is not my grandpa’s biological son, my grandparents did not take care of my father when he got married, especially after we were born.

At the beginning, my parents complained about my grandparents. Later, my mother started Dafa cultivation and began following the principles of Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance in her daily life.

Under my mother’s influence, my father stopped complaining about my grandparents. He helps them with a lot of work every year, such as farm work and preparing hay to feed the cows every fall.

My grandparent’s other four children are busy with their own lives and never have time to help their parents. My grandpa gave his youngest son all his hard-earned money, even though the youngest son never took care of his father.

Many villagers feel sorry for my father. Later my grandma passed away and left my grandpa alone.

My mother and I often take care of him. Later my uncles asked me to cook for my grandpa every day.

I agreed, because I cultivate in Dafa. If I wasn't a cultivator, I would not have agreed as I have my own life and my own family to take care of.

People in the village say I am a good person. I am thankful to Master for making me a nice person.
