I was baptized in the Catholic church as an infant
I was confirmed in my “faith” in the Lutheran church in Middle School
I was a fairly good kid in High School…but I spent some time in the gutter
College was interesting, I remember some of it
I served for 6 summers at an outdoor ministry and found Jesus as my personal savior at the age of 20
I got married to a man who believed in Jesus
I continued attending the Lutheran Church on Sundays (while secretly attending the midweek service at a local Foursquare church)
When I moved to Bend we made Westside Church our home.
I found out what life with the Holy Spirit in the very center of my being is all about
I exercised “tough love” 4 years ago, which led to some challenges
4 years ago, I learned what FAITH was all about, I’ll never go back
I’ve been mostly coasting the last 3 years, serving and ministering where called
Just in the last 2 weeks I outgrew my comfort shell and was forced to move out
I’m now running naked, like a hermit crab, in search of the new shell.
Good news is I can’t fit back in the old shell, bad news is I’m butt naked
This is a vulnerable time
