Leading from values so others will walk passionately with God to grow and bear fruit.
Ever since I was little I had been going to church for Sunday school and services. I felt that it was another thing to check off my list of things to do rather than actually going because I wanted to go.
Then when I got to college at Texas Tech University, I was always busy, running around, stressed out with my life.
I was in many college clubs, activities, and on the President’s List. I was concerned about what my résumé would look like.
My life revolved around social aspects and my sorority Zeta Tau Alpha.
I thought the more I was involved in, the happier I would be. But I wasn’t enjoying anything because I was in so many things. I wasn’t able to be fully involved in any one thing. I just wasn’t having any time to myself, with any time to think.
One day while at lunch, I met Misty Cook, a Campus Crusade staff member. When we talked about spiritual things, I was able to relax and be myself.
In November 2010, I committed my life to Christ when talking to Misty. It was hard realizing that Christ needed to be first in my life instead of myself. Since I have, I realize He is always with me.
I got my priorities in line now, putting Christ first instead of myself.
My whole mindset changed, which is inspiring; with a new drive in a completely different way. My time and talents can be used for so much more than I ever thought they could be.
My life is still busy. I just need to trust in Him and He’ll show me the way.

If you are reading this and for some reason you hate God, and you feel alone, know that He is constantly loving you. He will turn the situation around. Therefore, choose God as He chooses you.
It could be said that I grew up in the church, however, my heart was not entirely in it.
