I was blessed and did not comprehend how much until I was an adult. I grew up in the church and Jesus was included every week. Born into a family where the adults played the piano and organ for the worship, and also were Sunday School teachers, meant we were in church several times a week. I have the Sunday School pins to prove it.
Youth group was held every Friday night and we learned about pursuing Jesus amidst all the fun and laughter teens have when they gather weekly. Youth group provided the avenue for me to meet my husband and begin a journey all my own.
Only as a wife and young mom did I begin to wonder if this was all there was to life. Were my days to only be filled with working and tending to a home and baby?
I had a head knowledge of God and a heart that loved Jesus, but I had not yet fully learned to engage with God in and through the pages of His Word.
This week at W2W Ministries, we are doing a series called “What’s True About You!” Each day our writers will share their testimony of what God has done in their life, and what’s true about them. I hope you will join me as I share the rest of my story (HERE). There is also a beautiful Dayspring giveaway which includes Holley Gerth’s new book, “What’s True About You”, a journal, and a journaling kit. Be sure to enter by clicking HERE.Â
