I have always gone to church. I grew up in church. I always went because my mom made me but when I was 15 years old I got to go on a mission trip to Haiti. That changed my life in so many ways. So I got baptized I thought I would go through life loving God but I started to grow away from him. I always went to church events and trips with my church but I didn't really stay with god. I recently went to a chunk camp that made me feel different than I expected. I am closer to God then I have ever been. I got to tell my story to a family that i never thought I would have. My story is I have been growing away from god the past few years and I always told myself I would wait till marriage but I didn't. A few weeks after that I found out I was pregnant and I had a miscarriage. I thought good was so mad at me for what I did. Few months later I lost a really close friend who was like a brother. Then a month and a half later I lost another friend. That's when I started to think god hated me and I started drinking and smoking and partying and doing things I should never have done. I went to CIY Move and it completely changed my life! I'm so happy that I know now that god will never hate me or anyone else. He will always be by my side. I got baptized again because I know God was calling me to. I'm so thankful for everything and everyone in my life.
