I currently live in Houston Texas. I was born and raised, until the age of ten, in Oregon. We relocated to Montana, then back to Oregon then to Utah then back to Montana. That’s the condensed version of our many moves. Army brat? If only! Very mentally ill mother who drug her kids with her on whatever paranoia was driving her decision making at the time. Also a devout Jehovah’s Witness.
I was a sceptic of Jesus. Living a life of being abused, abandoned by my father, unhealthy marriages, more abuse and the cycle goes on. If there was a God he didn’t care about me. After a horrifying incident, I cried out to God and Jesus saved me in every way I needed to be saved. I found Jesus at age 48 years young. I have been an “all in” Christian for eight years now.
I found apologetics or it found me and I’m hooked. I know what a wall I had around me. Many times people tried to share Jesus with me and I would walk away thinking, “Yeah right.” I want to be better equiped to share Jesus with a hurting person who feels abandoned by God. I want to be better equiped to handle questions about my faith and be ready to give solid evidence, backed with biblical principles and covered in a lovely layer of sweet hope.
I love interacting with fellow believers. I am an encourager a sort of female Barnibus. I can also bring the perspective of my many years as a prior nonbeliever in a loving and good God. I know that wall!
Thanks for accepting me!
