I did not grow up in church, in fact my mother is completly against all religion. The only experience I had was taking my grandmother to the Catholic church a few times. When I got married and started a family, I realized that something was missing, but I didn't know what. I was alone, unsupported and lost. I went through a divorce and watched as my child moved to a state 1800 miles away. I had reached an all time low and I didn't know where to turn.

I had been invited to church and the experience changed me. I walked into a place that was accepting, inviting, and welcoming. After meeting with a pastor several times, I accepted Jesus into my life. I gained peace and a new found understanding of my world. I found a purpose for my life.....To know God and to make Him known. I now work daily to have a relationship with Him by praying, worshipping, discipling, and doing life with a small group.
