I was one of nine children my mom raised as a single parent. Growing up, I moved around so often that I felt like I had nothing to call my own. In the 9th grade, I dropped out of school to provide for my girlfriend and our unborn child; but I later found out that she secretly had an abortion. I felt so betrayed, and I became extremely depressed.
This sounds crazy, but I was actually inspired to pray to God after watching a sitcom on TV. I saw one of the characters praying bes...ide her bed, and I felt led to pray too. I didn't really understand what I was doing, but I woke up the next day feeling completely different. I had a sense of hope that I couldn’t explain. When I started going to church, I learned that it was Jesus who had saved me. I began to understand that God loves me. He's changed me so much since I gave my life to him. I got my GED and graduated from bible school. It just blows my mind. I can't wait to see what God will do in my life next.
