My faith journey:
I was born and raised in a Christian Science household, but had a crisis of faith at 15. I came across a text from "Science and Health: Key to the Scriptures" that seemingly contradicted the Bible itself. I investigated this issue further with my mother and the practitioners at the church.  Their answers were not satisfactory.  So I became that "good moral" kid eager to see what the world had to offer. 

In college, I became friends with a Christian who I deeply respected.  He and I spoke on a regular basis. But, I still struggled with  believing the Bible as absolute truth.  After college, several people approached me claiming that their religion was true. I knew they all could not be right. They could all be wrong, but they could not all be right.  However, in 1995, God would use my girlfriend (now wife) and a tele-evangelist to change my heart.  

So for 22 years, I've grown more amazed and thankful of His choosing to call me out of darkness into His marvelous light.  Oh, how glorious it is.
