  • I don't feel that I ever wasn't... I remember even as a child feeling that life was magical. I used to lay in the grass and talk to the goddess way before I knew who she was!

  • I finally felt connected to my faith when I was 25. I realized that It wasn't my job to find God. God was always there, I just had to let him in to my life.

  • It's an ongoing process. My life is constantly evolving and my faith evolves with it. I think it's important to go through life with an open mind and an open heart.

  • Actually, at the age of 25. That's when I really understood, and became very active. As a child I really didn't grasp everything, and when I was in my early 20s, I had an abusive husband so I really had a hard time with him letting me do what I wanted as far as religion.

  • I surrendered to Him in 2002. I had been through a lot for my age even opened dark doors (evil realm). The good news is that He chose me while I was still a sinner. I felt this overwhelming power spirit with me. I wiped my tears and knew He was real and good. since then I've been wanting more. I grew fast in my walk. I love my savior and he loves me. :) my life is His!!!!!!

  • I finally made my faith my own in college. What I mean is, I figured out why I believe what I believe, I stopped leaning on other's faith and answers. I started searching scripture for myself and made my faith completely personal. It's an ongoing process, one that still has me learning and searching but that's because God is so big and I'm so human. =)
