Most of my life has been spent trying to earn God’s love through obedience and works. Stuck in a cycle of trying and failing, I was exhausted by the guilt and shame that followed closely behind. By reading scripture, God opened my eyes to my sin and allowed me to feel the weight of the separation it put between me and God. I repented of my sin and put my faith and trust in Jesus’ redemptive work on the cross. He has continued to soften my legalistic heart, teaching me more about His grace that has rewritten my story and claimed my identity. I am so excited to share with others the grace of God and everlasting joy that is found only in the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
