I was raised in a home where God was a fact, something that had been passed on from parent to child over the years. He always was, always is, and always will be. The Gospel was presented to me by my father as this: Jesus was God’s son and was sent by God to die on the cross for my sins. I had believed this as fact until I was about 16. I was attending a youth Bible study here at Milwood when the fact that Jesus came to die for my sins became a deep understanding, that the Holy Spirit was working in my heart, that Christ was my Savior and redeemer and I knew that I needed to profess that openly through baptism. I was baptized in March of 2003 here at Milwood where I continue to serve Him and grow. It is by the grace of God that I am able to share the Gospel with my children and raise them in the Church. It is a true blessing that I am gifted with the opportunity to share the Gospel with other parents and their children through Milwood Preschool.
