  • What is your favorite(s) Bible Verse and why?  My Verse is Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not  on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and He will direct your paths. This Verse is important to me because it reminds me of all God has done for me through trusting Him, even when I did not understand why things happened the way they did.

  • Testimony: I chose to accept Jesus into my heart when I was in  elementary school and was ready to share my commitment by being baptized when I entered middle school.  I continued to grow in my faith through high school and college while serving in the children’s ministry.
