Q: My first recollection of being in church was…

Q: If I could name a turning point in my life for my relationship with God it would be ________ and why?

A: When I handed Elizabeth over to the surgeon at 5 days old, for her first heart surgery. It was truly the first time I HAD to trust God, fully. I had no other choice. I sat in my car and spoke with God for the first time since childhood. I spoke to him, and said, “She’s yours God. Not mine. I trust you no matter what happens… but please protect her so she can come back to me.

Q: If I had to tell someone why I am a Christian I would have to say..

A: I’ve always believed in Jesus, the gospel was taught to me at a young age. I’ve never questioned his existence.  I have experienced God working in my life. I have experienced this world and I can tell you, when I have relationship with the Father, this world doesn’t seem as dark. I need my relationship with God. He gives me purpose.
