In Christ's Love
I once was lost, but now am found! 2 Corinthians 5:17
Interests: I have been married for 17 years to Ken, a wonderful husband and father who loves God, and loves me unconditionally. We have 3 beautiful daughters, ages 13, 9, and 7. I have spent most of my life chasing the wrong things and feeling empty, instead of looking to Christ for my self-worth and value. Raised in a dysfunctional home with an alcoholic father, I spent many years wandering aimlessly trying to find my purpose in life. I accepted Jesus as my Savior at the age of 21, but sadly did not start living for Him until recently because I struggled with feeling unworthy & guilt ridden for past mistakes. I am passionate about encouraging others to be set free from blinding lies that prevent them from living the life God desires them to live. It wasn't until I stopped pretending to be perfect and started being "real" with others that I experienced growth....in my marriage, my friendships, and my relationship with God. My hope is that in learning to be "real" we will begin to break down the barriers that distance us, and replace them with the perfect hope that Christ offers. This forum will allow me to share my faith via blogging, book and bible studies.
