I am blessed to have grown up in a family that loves Jesus, and have always known of God and his many blessing. Growing up I was taught Christian values and morals, and was comfortable keeping God at arm’s length. During my first year of university my life changed and I made the choice that all children from a Christian household must make; is it my parents faith or my own? The stress and new found freedom of university pushed me to a confusing and directionless part of my life and I looked to God for help. God met me in many wonderful ways and won my heart. Near the end of my first year I found my identity in Christ and made the decision to be baptized.
Jesus is the anchor of my soul, and my identity is in him. I try to live my life as Proverbs 3:5 dictates, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”
