“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else. ” ~ C. S. Lewis

I became a Christian as a very young girl (yes, that’s me at age 4) and basically grew up with and in Jesus Christ. I’m still growing and discovering His truths.

He has been my constant Companion and Travel Guide as I have journeyed through this life. His Spirit has sustained and led me through wilderness and desert, in the valley, over mountains, and into green pastures. Although I have been misguided time and again, it was only because I got off the path. He always stayed the course and redirected me with His grace, truth, and love. He’s my True North. The Lover of my Soul. My Shepherd. Redeemer. My King.

It is a freeing truth to realize that being a Christian isn’t about what you do, but who you are in Christ. It’s not about religion it’s about relationship. What an amazing gift it is to be grafted into His family and a joint heir in His Kingdom. As such, it has been a blessing to be involved in various ministries through the years: Children’s & Youth Ministries, Camping Ministry, Women’s Ministries, Women’s Discipleship, Small Groups, Bible Study Teacher, Internet Ministries. And most importantly, ministry to my family.

I have found Christianity to be a most reasonable faith and love to study God’s Word. Some of my favorite topics are Biblical Creation, Christian Philosophy, Hebrew Roots of Christianity, Apologetics.

When I Say “I Am A Christian” …

When I say…”I am a Christian”
I’m not shouting “I am saved”
I’m whispering “I get lost!”
“That is why I chose this way.”

When I say…”I am a Christian”
I don’t speak of this with pride.
I’m confessing that I stumble
and need someone to be my guide.

When I say…”I am a Christian”
I’m not trying to be strong.
I’m professing that I’m weak
and pray for strength to carry on.

When I say…”I am a Christian”
I’m not bragging of success.
I’m admitting I have failed
and cannot ever pay the debt.

When I say…”I am a Christian”
I’m not claiming to be perfect,
my flaws are too visible
but God believes I’m worth it.

When I say…”I am a Christian”
I still feel the sting of pain
I have my share of heartaches
which is why I seek His name.

When I say…”I am a Christian”
I do not wish to judge.
I have no authority.
I only know I’m loved.
