“God has restored me. I don’t want people to think this is a sad story…it’s what God used to liberate me.”
No matter how we meet Christ, through whom we meet Him, or the circumstances under which we meet Him, each of our stories is carved and cultivated differently and we never look back being the same person.

Emily referenced this verse as she spoke passionately about baptism and the role it plays in our relationship with Christ, “If we are not obedient in the little things, we will not be [obedient] in the big things. I am not saying baptism is “little”, just more so that the actual process is easy. You can do it anywhere! Being baptized is a privilege.”
