Salvation Experience: I grew up in churches and always had a head knowledge of what it meant to know and follow God but it wasn’t until I was in my early 20’s and newly married that God forced me to confront my level of trust in Him.  I came to know Him fully and trust Him with my life and live every day to glorify Him and follow Him and His will for life.
