I’ve grown up in the Christian faith and still growing. I go to services with my parents most of the time and learned about God and Jesus Christ. I’ve been scared about things and I’ve had anxiety & phobias about certain things. But I learned how He died on the cross for all of us sinners.

In April 2015 at our Easter services, we sat at tables for communion as a family of believers. But this time was different! I sat in between my mom and dad like always and this is hard to describe, but there was presence in the air of good. So when the pastor asked if anyone wanted to get to know Jesus and wanted to get born again, I felt as if someone grabbed me by my arm as to say raise your hand or stand up. I wasn’t scared and was calm. I think it was the Holy Spirit. So in May of 2015 I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and was born again. I don’t have much fear, anxiety or phobias like I use to. I will always believe in God.
