I grew up not knowing my father and living with my mother until I was eight, when my mom's boyfriend abused me and I was thrust into foster care. I spent the rest of my childhood in various group homes and foster homes, yet always feeling "someone" was out there who cared about me.
When I was sixteen I had been invited to a vibrant church and the youth Sunday school teacher led me in accepting Christ as my personal Savior. In my early 20's, I joined a community of Christ followers my own age and started walking more consistently with the Lord. I love serving others with my gift and talents, and continuing to grow closer to Jesus with my wife.
