When I was 15 years old, my family moved to a new city and I had to start over again. A group of Christian kids in my sophomore German class reached out to me and invited me to their youth group’s winter retreat. It was there that I first heard about God’s unconditional love for me and made the decision to follow Christ. Each day I thank the Lord that He loves me in spite of my failings. I know I can do nothing to earn God’s favor, for it is by His grace alone that I am saved, not by my own effort (Ephesians 2:8-9). My background is in family psychology and I’m honored to be serving at Grace, sharing the Good News with kids and helping families grow closer together and closer to Jesus!
