I have grown up surrounded by religion, and there as always been the truth that Jesus is there for all of us.

I didn’t grow up in your “normal” white picket fence family. My parents have been split nearly my whole life and my mother has struggled with drug abuse. Growing up in that environment hasn’t always been easy, In fact it has been one of the most difficult things I’ve experienced. It became easy for me to loose my path with God, and I did.

In my time away from him I fell into one of the worst depressions of my life, I almost didn’t make it through. On my worst day, I decided to pray. At the time I thought it was silly, but I was hopeless, looking for anything to work. When I prayed, I felt this relief, I felt like maybe everything would be alright.

As many times as I struggled to keep my faith, I stuck to it. It took a long time, but I found peace. And devoting myself to Jesus has been the most important step in that process. As difficult as it has been, I am now proud to walk with our Lord.
