"From my earliest memory, it seems that I knew God was real. I can remember being in grade school and asking God for help with friendships and scary situations. That type of relationship of asking for what I needed would continue on into my early adult years. But, at 24 years old, I found myself engaged to the love of my life and starting a new job as a practical nurse. I was also expecting a baby in a few months.
Overwhelming emotions of joy, fear, uncertainty and insecurity caused me to cry out to the Lord continually. I began to feel God's presence, unconditional love, and peace like never before. I developed a hunger to know scripture. My heart was totally changed and a deep faith grew. Psalms 27 in the Amplified Bible speaks best of my relationship with God:
'One thing I have asked of the Lord, and that I will seek: That I may dwell in the house of the Lord (in His Presence ) all the days of my life, To gaze upon the beauty (the delightful loveliness and majestic grandeur) of the Lord and to meditate in His temple...I would have despaired had I not believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for and confidently expect the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for and confidently expect the Lord.'"
