I was raised a Christian, so at a very early age I knew that I needed Jesus Christ to take away my sin. I would have to say it was my parents and the church that led me to that understanding. Even though I had this great Christian foundation from my parents, after high school I drifted away from the church and my faith thinking I can be on my own and still be a Christian. I would infrequently visit HDC when I was invited by my mom but after over a decade of trying it on my own, I knew something was missing and only became more apparent after my two daughters were born. On Sunday, May 10, 2015, Mother’s Day, I made a personal commitment to return to HDC on a regular basis and to have my two daughters involved in HDC Kids so they could have the same foundation I was given by my parents. On Friday, November 06, 2015, during HDC’s Men's Retreat I came to the conclusion I needed to show, in a public way, my commitment to Christ. I have been made whole again by coming back to Christ and I am ready to show the world.
