My Story:
I grew up believing that being a Christian meant going to church and just believing that God is real. In 9th grade, God used a relationship I was in to show me I was changing myself to make a guy like me when God loves me exactly how I am which is sinful. He showed me that he loved me so much he would send his son to die for me so I could have a personal relationship with him. I couldn’t resist being called into such a sweet and satisfying relationship with Jesus Christ. I saw then that being a Christian was more than going to church on Sunday but having a close relationship with God and believing the gospel so that it changes the way you live your every day life.

My hobbies:
Dancing both in a studio and in my living room, reading, flossing my teeth, running, traveling, learning about different cultures
