Splash

I am approaching my ten year baptism anniversary. I was baptized at the age of thirteen on a beautiful, warm, sunny Easter day. Even at that young of an age, I fully comprehended the commitment and testimony that baptism entailed, and I was excited. I was excited to share my testimony in front of my visiting family members, my church family, and all the guests that attende...

How Can I Be Silent?

Something happened to me, and I will never be the same again. Sure, life is constantly changing and as I grow older, I mature more into a responsible, hard-working adult.

Faithful in Relationship

I'm about to get personal in this blog post. Pastor Cory challenged me to write about what the Lord is teaching me right now in this very moment. To do so, I must be willing to be vulnerable enough to share some of my struggles and desires concerning where I am at in this season of life.
