You Are More: My First Blog Post and Open Apology
It might strike you as odd to start my Faith In Every Day Blog off with an apology. However I believe that it couldn't be more appropriate. You see I am starting fresh in every aspect of myself. The way I think, feel and react has all changed, I am no longer the same person I was a year ago. Let me explain, for a long time I had believed in Gods love and Jesus saving me on the cross but I wasn't living out my faith. I had my beliefs and faith in God, I grew up in the church and a few years ago converted to Catholicism, but I never knew what it meant to truly live out your faith. I was the prime example of a hypocrite, but to be honest I didn't know any better. Then when my husband and I moved to Texas, God took control of my life and lead me to some wonderful Christian role models who showed me what giving your life to Christ really was about. After one of our small group meetings I was convicted to start reading the Bible for myself since I never have my whole life. I read the Bible in almost exactly a year and this past year has been one of the most transforming years in my entire life.
