Born on June 7th, I never thought that one day I would be going out into the world as a missionary for Jesus Christ. Or as an active member of over 100 different Christian websites. Or as a member of a church, two youth groups, 3 different bible studies, 2 prayer teams, a worship team, and so much more. I never thought that there was a God or a Savior, or even anyone who loved me. I grew up in a small home of oh, 8-10 people. I was pretty shy, but well-rounded. As I grew up, life got really hard for me. My parents divorced on my seventh birthday, and then a few months after, both my grandparents died. Then bad things happened at school. I have tried to commit suicied more than 4 times. And through it all, i felt so alone. But really, I was never alone. When I was 12, I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior. Ever since then, God has been revealing Himself to me in everything, and I am so in love with Him. It is so wonderful to know Jesus! &#38#38#61D
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. . .And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." - excerpts from 1 Corinthians 13:4-13

"So you walk down the street, with your Gideons bible in your back pocket, and the determination to share Jesus with the world. You stop on a busy street corner, and take a look at the people passing by. Just think… All of these people have a story to tell, and all of these people were created by God. I would like to ask a simple question…What do you see?
Some days you might be walking around your neighborhood and hear someone who says they are Christian use foul language, or one of your friends sends you a crude text message, and they sit next to you in church. They talk the Talk, but unfortunately, they don’t walk the Walk. I like to call these people Masked Christians. How do others see you? Would people describe you as a “Masked Christian”? Or are you a true follower of Jesus Christ?
As children of God, we need to be aware of how we live and act around others. We need to be a possitive influence to those who haven’t yet accepted Jesus as their Savior. We are called to be shining lights in this dark, desolate world.
Shine your light upon the world…What do you see?"
