I was born and raised Catholic and my parents raised me to love and honor our lord and savior Jesus Christ. My wife and were married through the Catholic religion and began our life together in that faith. Although I was attending church on a regular basis and had God in my heart I was not truly letting God in my life. Like most marriages we had our ups and downs and I created a hurdle because I let Satan in my life and he almost won.
After that my wife told me that I needed God in my life. I had always believed that I had God in my life and I did, but that was not the problem. The problem was that I was not putting God first. About 4 years ago my wife and I attending HDC and at first I was hesitant to attend because I truly felt that I was a believer in Christ. I was open to the idea of HDC, I did not just open my ears but I also opened my heart to Christ. I received an over whelming feeling that went through my body. I had tears that wanted to come out. I really felt the lord talking to me. I quickly learned how I was living my life was not the right way or how God wanted me to live my life. I started to Christ first and before I knew it God was fixing my life in every aspect from my marriage, family work and in other areas in my life that I didn’t know that I needed him in. I had to leave across country for training and I would be gone nearly 6 months and I knew that I would need Christ more than ever being away from my family. During the whole time away Satan tried to intervene and he almost won, but with my faith and trust in God Satan never stood a chance.
As a believer in Christ, I know the blessing that Christ has blessed me and continue to bless me with each and every single day. My family and I are truly blessed because of the way we live our life (putting Christ first), and we are raising our two beautiful children in the Christian faith and putting Christ first. I am not a perfect Christian and I sin, but knowing that Christ has died for us and our sins and he forgives us everyday lets me be the best Christian that I can be.
