I grew up in a fairly stable family, where I knew my mom and dad loved me. When I was eleven, I was invited by a friend to Vacation Bible School. At VBS, I felt loved by the group in a way that I had never felt before. The love they showed me was even different than the love I had received from my parents. Later, I realized it was the love of Jesus Christ that this group of people was showing me.
That week, I learned about Jesus for the first time. I learned that He died on the cross for me, because I am not perfect and that He loves me. At the end of the week, I told Jesus that I believed He died for me and I wanted Him to be a part of my life. I was young, but the prayer was real.
From that day forward, I have been continuing to learn more and more about Jesus and His love for me. Life, although not always easy, has never been the same since. Jesus has totally changed my life. Having Jesus in my life has brought me true joy, even in the mist of trials.
