    I Went To A Youth Conference Tonight..

    and it was the most amazing thing. I've grown up with an atheist father and an agnostic mother. My father constantly speaks out against anything he doesn't agree with; so forming my own opinion on things has been hard. I was scared going to this because I knew my father...

    I Wasn't Raised In a Christ Based Home.

    Life in my youth was tough.  Among other things, I was raped 2 times by the time I was 12.  Then only time I went to church, I was sent there by my mother to get her out of her hair. There were times when she kicked me out of the house and everything.  One memory...

    Unhappy With Where You Are?

    Where we are in life is exactly where we want to be. Not necessarily because it's what we want but because it's good enough. When good enough isn't good enough anymore THAT'S when we start living :)

    Finishing My Experience

    This is what I thought when I read some parts of the Bible, Jesus told his people that if you saw what I look like, we already know what our Father looks like. Well I look at it this way. What God meant was that he sent Moses to create Christ, Moses is the starter of Christ in...
