I was born into a Christian family with parents who are involved in ministry. I grew up believing the gospel and being involved in church. I even thought that maybe the Lord had called me to missions. However, I often struggled with anxiety and depression, and began finding ways to deal with those emotions that were unbiblical. I ended up walking away from the Lord in High School, but found it very empty. I was expelled from my High School my senior year, which began a process that resulted in me coming back to the Lord. I found in Him the joy and peace I had been seeking.
