How About This...I did not grow up in a christian family. My father was controlling and abusive. I went into foster care at 17. I attended a catholic church, and while there I was baptized. Catholics believe that being baptized as the same thing as being saved, which is not true. So I was saved at 20 and started to walk with the Lord for real at that point. I will back up a minute here and share something remarkable. At 19 I hit a pastor on a motorcycle. Luckily he lived, and I met him a few years later. He married my husband and I, and has remained a part of my life. We joined his church this past year. If you are struggling with your faith, I hope I can be an inspiration for you. I have been through so much hell and yet I am still standing today, and I do not stand alone.
