I was raised in a Christian home my entire life. I have always enjoyed worship and being able to worship freely. I’ve enjoyed serving at my local church in the nursery and helping where needed.
I’ve also volunteered at many Christian events and concerts when my mom worked at a Christian radio station. I’ve attended many great camps, and I was able to invite friends that did not know Jesus.
A Bible verse that speaks to me is Philippians 4:13. “I can do all things through Christ.” When I’m going through tough times, it’s a great reminder.
My relationship with Jesus is one of the most important things in my life. Without Him I would be lost and would be nothing. Another one of my reminders is a picture hanging on my wall that stands for, “God is greater than my highs and lows.”
Our family is moving to Virginia this summer. I’m looking forward to making new friends and growing deeper in my walk with Jesus.
