I came to know Christ in the summer of 2015. I was at a very rough point in my life. I was struggling with an addiction to drugs and carried a nasty anger problem. My relationships with friends and family were falling apart because of my sinful decision making in my life. One day as I was driving to work I was scrolling through the radio trying to find something to listen to. I came across a Christian radio station and a pastor was preaching about the forgiveness of God. The pastor shared that the grace God bestows on those who will trust in Jesus as their savior and the resurrecting power of His Death on the Cross. When I heard all of this talk about the grace of God, I felt as if I was in desperate need of God’s grace. There was a deep yearning for this grace from the inside of my heart. I burst into tears. I felt a burden lifted off my shoulders. I was given hope, strength, and a drive to live my life to the fullest. The resurrecting power of Jesus Christ became true in my life. I will continue to live my life serving the kingdom of God because of what He has done for me. I can never repay Him but I know as I am called to serve faithfully. I enjoy playing lead guitar for the praise band, soccer, and spending time with my family. I was married to my beautiful bride, Jamie, in May of this year.
