    1. How was your life before coming to faith in Christ? For example, where did you grow up? How was family, circumstances and life prior to salvation etc.?

    I grew up in a broken Christian home. My mom was a Christian who would not follow God's rules and My Dad was an athiest. My parents split up when i was two, so I lived pretty much my whole life with divorced parents.

    2. What made you open and interested in knowing God and obeying the Gospel? Who shared Christ, was a witness or testimony to you? What brought you to the point of believing?

    A girl I met. i won't say because that might tell who I am.

    3. How has it been since coming to Christ overall? More specifically, how has your growth, opportunities to serve, struggles and perseverance been?

    I have been feeling great. There has not been a moment I would take back. Since i have come to Christ, i have grown tremendously. I have worked with the kids in VBS and Sunday school, i have gone on two missions trips, though one of which i was not in the right place spiritually. I also was in the worship band for youth group and actively participated in youth group activities. Every opportunity but one I have taken in serving the lord, and i have my regrets, but feel he has drawn me away from it. I sometimes stumble, but they are all mistakes in which I learn from. So, they are all blessings. I used to struggle with porn, lust, drinking, drugs, cussing, respecting authority, respecting parents, lying, cheating, and idolizing sports over God. But, through God's love i have overcame all these addictions.

    4. What is Your Story...:

    I grew up in a somewhat Christian home. My mom was a Christian, even though she did not follow all of God's rules and was pregnant on her wedding day. Through all of this, she managed to take us to wednesday nights. When i was five, i was first saved. things went well until sixth grade. My mom and stepdad began fighting and i was the cause. i did not turn to God like i should have done. Instead, i turned to myself. I failed and began giving in to desires more. I began cussing constantly. I started drinking in sixth grade. This all continued until, in eighth grade, i gave up on God. I became angry at the world for what i believed my parents did to me. I was angry at them for my messed up life. By this time i drank ALOT. I swore, lusted, and looked at porn a lot too. But, every Sunday and Wednesday I put on my Christian face. My lying fooled everyone. No one could expect me, a good little Christian boy, to be such a terrible person. And yet i was. This went on even through a missions trip. I was doing God's work. and then Cursing God. It doesn't make sense, but it is all real. I continued to drink and then eventually started moving on to heavier things. I started popping Vicodins, and taking sleeping pills. It was a very dark time for me. This went on until about half way through the football season, I noticed something. There was a girl, unlike any other, and she actually talked to me. Long story short we became good friends and i really, really liked her. But, there was some thing about her. i just couldn't figure it out. I don't exactly remember when, but sometime in the middle of my freshman year in high school, I fully Accepted Christ, and i instantly became happy. My life seriously could not have been better than the way it was because i accepted Christ. God has been in control of my life ever since.
