I was blessed to be raised in a family that taught me to know Jesus at a young age, and I was constantly encouraged me to seek Him in all that I do. In college I made my faith my own, as I was challenged by peers and professors to question why I believed the things I do. It led me to focus in on apologetics, or developing sound arguments to defend my faith. Now, I’m happily married to my high school sweetheart and living in North Carolina. God gave me an empathetic heart, which allowed me to pursue my dream job as a pediatric physical therapist. Some of my favorite ways to connect with God are through nature, worship, and community with others.
