A: when I fell to my knees at a church in their parking lot and God met me their after I gave up my life style and gave him my life I’ll never forget that moment when he spoke to me and told me to go that church so I could get help because I was 19 years old 3 and half months pregnant and I didn’t have a home my dad and turned his back on me my brother was deep in his addiction and so was my mom and sister and in order to see God I had to hit rock bottom to see that God was for me and not against me and so as I’m in my knees a lady walks up to me and says “honey do you need me to take you somewhere” and I knew God had spoken to me that day because before I met that lady he spoke to me and told me to go to that church and said that somebody would be there to help me and and he was faithful to ensure someone was I’ll never forget that day because it changed my life forever. 

Q: If I could thank God for just one person in my faith journey it would be _______ and why?

That’s hard because it took a whole village just to raise me up but if it had to be one it would be Teresa richenberger because, she gave me a home and taught me how to lead a life of peace she gave me a place where I could learn and grow and teach me how to be a good mom because of her home she has for women and children (Rahabs Retreat and Ranch) I became the woman and mom God created me to be.

 Q: If I could name a turning point in my life for my relationship with God it would be ________ and why? 
A: it would be when he made himself known to me and what I mean by that is he began to show himself to me through his word and give me little miracles like saving my son from still brith healing my mind of mental illness and removing my desire for drugs I am 6 years clean because of him and when I became aware of his love in this way I fell in love with him and that is why I want him to be made known to everyone I meet and serve him for eternity.

 Q: If I had to tell someone why I am a Christian I would have to say
A: I am a Christian because I saw God persistence and faithfulness to me he showed me how much he loved me he never gave up on me and he gave me a life of freedom and for that I will always be his and he will always be mine.
