I have been blessed with the support of a loving, Christian family for my entire life. I made the decision to commit my life to Christ at a very young age. Each day I am striving to be closer to him.

Favorite Bible Verse:

Proverbs 3:5-6. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
