Central church of Christ
I grew up in the Lord’s church, however, my life has not always reflected that. I let other people’s actions dictate my life in a very self destructive way. If there was a wrong choice to be made, you can trust that I’ve probably made it. This made my journey to finding God really hard. If God loved me, why would He allow these things to happen? Then later, my question became: how could God forgive me of my choices when I couldn’t forgive myself or others? However, I think my story and experiences give me a greater empathy and understanding of the struggles we face as women. Our God is so good and loving and we are made in His image, so we need to love ourselves too. I am not a polished speaker, and I do not have all the knowledge or experience as a lot of ladies day speakers. I can offer encouragement and strength through hard times though, and a better understanding of the grace that God so freely gives.
I also lived in Tanzania, Africa for half a year and have continued to make trips there. I have spoken at a couple Ladies Days on mission work. (Once again, I’m not the most experienced, but better late then never!) I have a huge passion for sharing the gospel, in and out of our country. I love talking about how to reach the lost and the compassion we need to have when doing so. Sharing the gospel means more people will come to know our Savior and be saved, which means there will be more people in Heaven with us one day worshiping our God for eternity. What a beautiful day that will be.
