Ever since very young age as I have been raised in a Christian home and exposed to Christian virtues. It was not until I was around 6 years old when I made the decision to accept Jesus into my heart. I remember hearing at the “ABC’s” at church and asking my mom and dad to pray them with me so Jesus could be my friend. As I grew older I always knew what I believed in, but felt myself getting distant and replacing God with more materialistic things, such as my social standing and friends. It wasn’t until my mission trip to San Francisco in the Summer of 2014 where I really felt God tugging at my heart, so I had made the decision to re accept God into my heart, even though I knew he never left. Since then, I feel as if I have just been going through the motions with occasional ups and downs. I know now that I am ready for the next step in my walk with God and that is publicly declaring my faith in front of my family and friends.
