the testimony...

I am constantly fascinated in learning of how others have come to Faith. From the very dramatic, literally life saving last chance some experience to the quiet and humble ways others desire to draw closer to Christ and everything in between.

I invite you to share your story with the question being, "How has Jesus changed your life?"

Following Christ is not easy – at times it can seem overwhelming.  Luke 9 outlines very clearly the cost of following Him.  Because I fail regularly, I thank Jesus and ask for his grace regularly.  While I am growing deeper in learning His word and in my faith, there are plenty of days where it is two steps forward, four steps back!  This is the daily dance of dying to self.  It is practice.  Before Christ, I did not know true peace.  Sure, I could calm myself against the stresses of my job and marriage, but this wasn’t peace – it was a temporary fix.  I believe that true brokenness is Gods way of getting our attention.  Well, he got mine!  I finally surrendered two years ago and traded my will for his.  In doing so, I received His promised gift of beautiful, indescribable and permanent peace.  It is my prayer that everyone comes to know and dwell in His peace. see blog post: tired & broken
