VV Baptism Testimonies

Jessica Palacios

I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior at a young age but didn't truly understand what that meant. I would go to church on special occasions but never had support from my ex husbands to pursue Christ, which made it harder to do on my own. I was not walking the right path and was miserable. I gave myself to two different men who took my identity and only took me further from Christ and the woman I was trying to become. I have struggled with many things in my life including being cheated on, pushed around, anxiety and depression. With my mother always by my side, I started regularly attending HDC in January of 2011. 

I always knew I was missing the purpose of my life, but when I hit rock bottom on August 16, 2014, everything changed.  I ended up in the hospital for a nervous breakdown, having panic attacks daily. I knew the only thing that was going to help me was turning my life over completely to Christ. I made the commitment to Him and gave Him complete control over everything.  God's will is going to be my path from now on. I joined a small group in August of this year and met some fantastic people that continue to support me and help me in my path. My next step is baptism and when my oikos found out about my new walk, I was surprised at how much support and love I received. I have not had a panic attack in over a month and my life slowly but surely continues to have more blessings everyday.
