Favorite Life Verse: Psalms 147:3 For when I get down and struggle with the ways of this world I find comfort in this verse knowing that in him I can be made whole. This verse always brings me peace and comfort.
One of My Greatest Experiences with God: At one point in High School, I spent a good deal of my time being sad and distant from God. I hated it, but wasn't taking the steps to get out of it and was just really wanting him but not feeling worthy of his love. All of a sudden, on a dry summer night I found myself standing alone in the driveway. I began to open myself up and pray for rivers in the desert when out of nowhere a rush of cold wind surrounded me. It was the most calming, comforting, and peaceful moment. I knew in that moment that God was there and the pain I felt then was temporary. To this day when I become overwhelmed or down in the dumps I think of the wind hurling around me, and remember that it'll all be okay.
Most people don't know this about me: I was born in Keflavik, Iceland on the military base.
The one book (besides the Bible) I'd recommend to anyone is:Since Nobody's Perfect... How Good is Good Enough? by Andy Stanley
