Growing up my parents taught me about Jesus and I accepted Him into my heart when I was little. Even though I knew Jesus was my Savior, I didn't fully understand how big of a deal that was. I enjoyed going to church with my family, but I had a hard time understanding all of the details of what was being taught. lt wasn't until I went to summer camp in ninth grade that I truly understood the impact of what Jesus had done for me. Camp allowed me to fully focus on God and open my heart to what He was trying to teach me. With the encouragement of my family and my small group I continue to try to live my life for Jesus every day. This is why I want to be baptized, so I can obey God's command and show the world that I choose to follow Him.
