Being raised in a Christian home I attended church all my life. Although I am grateful for this rich heritage of faith, I realized early in life that having a relationship with Christ is not just a
family or communal experience. I knew that I needed a personal relationship with Him. As a
young teen I made a personal decision to follow Christ and His call on my life. From that point
to the present my life has been blessed as I continue to learn more and more how to follow Christ
and work in the Kingdom.
