I never really understood what it meant to have a relationship with God. I knew God existed but I never felt he would care about me. I lived most of my life as a very insecure woman and after an awful break up it caused me to drink and do drugs. I was invited to hdc by my best friend and I said no many times until one day I said yes. The band began to play and I was overwhelmed by how everyone sang with hands in the air worshipping so deeply .I saw the happiness they had found and it sparked something in me 4 years later I've developed a loving relationship with the lord I'm teaching my daughter about the lord and I met a wonderful man. Ifeel awake and alive for the first time and I’m gonna live like Jesus intended me too Its time to thrive.
