I was the kid at school everyone picked on, or torment would be a better word. This began as early as I can remember and it brought me to a place of seclusion.
I grew up in a Christian home. My parents took my brother and I to church every week.
When I asked Jesus to forgive me and become my Savior, it made a huge difference. It literally changed the course of my life.
My life before I met Christ was horrible… I wanted to commit suicide but I was too scared.
Growing up was rough for me. I was rebellious. I was searching. After my parents divorced I struggled with self esteem issues and depression.
My life before salvation was filled with fear and worry about the future, about what life held for me, and what was waiting for me when I died.
I grew up going to Sunday school and Church, not every Sunday, but most. It was basically just a way to get to see my friends.
I saw what I thought were others having fun and fell into temptation to join them. I started drinking and the more I drank the more I needed to have that fun, deeper
Years later, I came to a youth event and was absolutely shaken by what my heart was missing.
During this revival in 1975, I knew in my heart that it was time for me to confess my sins and accept Christ as my Lord and Savior.
