I grew up going to church and attending Sunday school, but it wasn’t until I was in my early 20’s that I learned what it meant to have a relationship with Jesus Christ.
As a young newly married woman, one of my first neighbors invited me to participate in a Bible study with her. During that study she asked me, “When you die, will you go to Heaven?” Not knowing for certain, my answer was, “I hope so.” My new friend assured me there was a way I could know for certain and introduced me to Christ’s redeeming work on the cross.
Since that time, I have become increasingly humbled by the suffering Christ endured as payment for my sin. I try to live in a way that is reflective of my deep appreciation for God’s undeserved love for me.
Looking back, it is clear to see how God has straightened out the many crooked paths of my life. It has been neat to see the relationships and opportunities he has provided. My husband, Troy, and I are grateful for our son to be attending FAITH as a young elementary student and the foundation it is helping to establish in his own walk with the Lord. I am also grateful to be serving as an administrative assistant in the school and observing the students firsthand as they grow and learn in a Christ centered environment.
