Favorite Verse: "Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity...take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both yourself and those who hear you." (1 Timothy 4:12;16, NKJV)
Testimony: On November 18 of 2001, a day after my parent's wedding anniversary, God called me into his family. It was through this transformation by God's spirit residing in my life, that I went from being a shy, purposeless body, to having a purpose that only God could work out. It has been amazing how much change God has made in my life alone, and the change that he continues to do as I teach his word to other people, who feel as I once did.
Looking back, I do not want to even think about where I'd be had Christ not rescued me from the path of destruction I was headed down.
As I enter my 6th year with the Lord, I anticipate what new oppurtunities Christ will give me to share his "Good News" with others around me, and what cool new ministries I will have the chance to be apart of.
May God continue to encourage and bless you as he has me!
