I encourage you to join me and many others on an incredible adventure of a vibrant relationship with God the Father through His Holy Spirit. This amazing journey is available to all of us through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. I wasn’t raised by church-going parents but in a desperate attempt to get me to behave my mother told me about God. This was a springboard for my quest to know God more. In my quest, I have increasingly placed hope and trust in the Lord with a result of gaining insight which led to life changing (and life giving) decisions. These decisions haven’t been easy to implement. It takes courage and honest self-reflection to move from emptiness and fear into action.
