MY STORY

I grew up in a Catholic home, both of my parents were Catholic. I went to church every Sunday and attended CCD (Sunday school). I was baptized as a baby, completed my Holy Communion and Confirmation. After completing my Confirmation I volunteered most of my high school years teaching 1st grade about God. 

Growing up in a Catholic Church, it was hard to understand. A lot of time, I really did not want to go to church. It was difficult for me to build an understanding in the Catholic faith. I still attended and had a decent relationship with God.

When I was 17 I became very distant from God. I practically didn't have a relationship with Him at all. It was not until I was 19 I realized I needed God in my life. I went through an experience I thought I'd never have to go through.

I remember crying out and asking God to forgive me since I grew so far from Him and for the sins I have committed along the way. I told Him I needed Him in my life. I felt ashamed and embarrassed. I promised Him I will start building our relationship and attend church. 

If it was not for that situation, I would of never known the power of needing God in your life. I am grateful for Sis Preach It because it allows me to be vulnerable and honest with all of you of my walk with Christ.  

 

Since then, committed myself to never miss a Sunday. 

I have seen God's work work miracles in my life.

In 2018, I was baptized.

I gained so many new friendships that I am so blessed to have.

I volunteer in 2 ministries. 

I have witnessed people turn to Christ. (I even baptized ) 

I tithe.

Started a Etsy shop selling Christian Jewelry! ( www.etsy.com/shop/stampedbysis )

I have completely surrendered myself to Christ.

Christ have molded me into someone I have never imagined.
