VV Baptism Testimonies

Mandy Wilson

I grew up in a Christian family and we went to church every Sunday. When I was 10 years old I asked Jesus to be my Lord and Savior. At that time I thought I knew what it meant to be saved by His grace but now I realize I didn't really know God, I just knew about him. 

My parents got divorced when I was in middle school and after that my whole family stray from the church. God became less of a focus in my life. I felt angry all through my teenage years. I often found myself searching for a meaning of life. 

When I got to my lowest point, God brought himself to me. Because I grew up in a Christian family I knew what I needed to do. Letting God back into my life meant I could be saved, forgiven for my sins that I make every single day, and have a eternal life. I recommitted myself to living for God and though I know I can easily go down dark paths, having faith in God and knowing he will never leave me gives me all the strength I need to overcome anything.
