I am a born-again, spirit filled Christian. I do not believe in condemnation, but in sharing the love and peace that having Jesus as Lord and Savior offers. Having tried sex, drugs, alcohol, cutting and suicide to deal with past traumas, I can say to a lot of people, "I've been there." In developing a personal relationship with Jesus, I have found my worth, my stability and my hope. I don't argue with people. Not everyone agrees with my beliefs, but I think everyone is searching for peace, deep, honest peace. I am not perfect. I can only do my best each day. Sometimes, my best isn't enough - but yet, Jesus loves me and in Him, I have faith and hope that every day is an opportunity to give to others, to grow and see joy and miracles amidst storms and grief. I have a son in the middle of Iraq, and without my faith (I pray Psalm 91 over him daily), I would not be able to handle the danger he is in. I face fear, am going through a personal crisis, and yet, find that in my weakness, Jesus is my rock, my strength, my legs when I cannot stand. I welcome anyone as a friend. I don't require anything of you except that you take me for who (and Whose) I am. I am willing to do the same, as long as there is respect and honesty.
