My parents gave me my foundation of the Lord when I was younger by talking about him and always praying before meals. I grew up always knowing who Christ was and the sacrifice he made for us. There was never a question in my mind that I was a Christian, but I never knew what that actually entailed. I started coming the HDC in 2008. During that time I was going through a divorce and was very depressed and searching for peace and a new start. The Lord provided me with the strength I needed and also the people to be the hands and feet for him. For the next seven years I would say I was a fair weather Christian. When times got tough I would turn to the Lord and start going to Church on a regular basis. Than when life would be steady I would stray off the path and stop going to Church, stop praying and stop thanking the Lord for the blessings in my life. I made a lot of decisions of the world rather than doing things the Lords way and following his word. These decisions lead to a lot of heartache, struggles, and pain. Finally in September 2015 I was hit with another life changing event. I knew this was something I could not handle on my own and knew that the only way to overcome this was with the Lord. This time I decided there is no other way to do this than to be all in. I made a decision to devote myself to the Lord and to give him complete control of my life. Since than I have known a peace in my life I have never known. I joined a small group and have met some amazing people who have helped me have a better understanding of living a righteous life and also staying on that path.
