I have been fortunate enough to have been exposed to God my entire adult life. I grew up in church and attended nearly every single week for most of my childhood, and even worked for a large church for several years during college.
I was baptized at 8 days old. Having just had a few babies over the last several years, I respect my mom’s dedication to getting me baptized – particularly the part where she had to sit on a hard wooden pew at just one week postpartum!
I’ve had a good life. I’ve been blessed with education, opportunity, and experiences that many people dream of. I have three beautiful children and a great job. I give thanks for these blessings every single day.
I’ve also faced a lot of struggle and frankly- a good bit of trauma. One thing I know for sure — I was brought to and through those times because God was trying to bring me closer to Him.
I say that I am a recovering superwoman because a superwoman thinks she can and is supposed to do it all on her own.
I thought that for a long time.
But, do you know what friends? I no longer want to do it on my own. I know that I can’t.
He can. And I’m choosing to let Him.
I’ve been on a journey these last few years of my life. It’s a journey that I am proud of.
On October 6, 2019, I briefly shared my testimony and was baptized at Orchard Hill Church, where I’ve been attending for the last 3 years. It was such a meaningful day, and I felt the presence of God with me in that moment.
Orchard Hill has shown me God in a way that I never saw Him before. And I’m so happy that I was able to make this step in my journey
