I experienced this especially during my teenage years, wherein I grew callous to Christianity and the things of God. However, in God’s faithful provision, he convicted me of how much I lacked his righteousness and how much I desperately needed his grace. He showed me that it didn’t matter what faith I was “born into” or who I associated with. Rather, what mattered most was having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and trusting in him alone for salvation and the forgiveness of sins. It was then that I committed to serving and following Christ with every part of my life—not just those that were convenient for me.
I was born in Kentucky and grew up in Southern California after my parents’ divorce. My mom was a single parent, and she raised my brother and I in the church. I came to understand the good news and put my faith in Christ when I was 13 years old. Accepting Jesus as my Lord and Savior changed my life. The Holy Spirit began to transform my bitter, angry, self-righteous heart into a forgiving, gracious, and less self-righteous heart. Knowing that God forgave me when I was his enemy, a sinner—even when I did nothing to deserve his love—helped me apply the truths of forgiveness and reconciliation to the broken relationships in my own life.
I’ve experienced a deep satisfaction, healing and comfort during various trials from God through the ministry of Biblical Counseling. God blessed me with my husband, Ben, from whom I learned more about Biblical Counseling during our dating and married years. We’ve gone to IBCD, ACBC, and many more Biblical Counseling conferences and trainings, and they have helped me in my own walk with God as well as equipped me in discipling the youth and peers in my church. In June/July 2018, Ben and I went to Thailand and Myanmar with OIC. I’m excited to utilize my profession as a Speech-Language Pathologist and my pursuit in Biblical Counseling certification for overseas ministry as we pray for our next steps as long-term missionaries.
