Before HDC I didn’t understand anything about sin or the bible. I knew the bible existed and that Jesus died on the cross for us. I had a friend that gave me my first bible and gave me emergency versus to read. That was an eye opener for me.
Before Jesus I was very angry at life and at God. I didn’t understand why everything happened. I asked God what did I do to deserve this life? Why me God why? It was a long, lonely and difficult road without Christ in my life.
I was going through a divorce which was hard on me. I needed to believe that things will eventually get better. My friend had invited me to HDC. I went to service one Sunday and fell in love with just feeling at peace and listening to the pastor’s service. Everything else was falling apart but in that moment, I felt like nothing could hurt me.
My friends and my second mom, Shirley helped me understand what I needed to do to receive Christ as my Lord and Savior.
I’m a better person all around since accepting Christ. My faith in Jesus Christ gave me peace in my heart. I’ve seen how prayer can change someone’s situation completely. I’m a better mom most importantly. I have more patience and my kids and I pray together.
