After graduating high school in 2004 I had no idea where my life was headed. After a few short months a life altering weekend changed my life’s perspective forever. I discovered the never-ceasing love of Christ. Growing up, I had attended church and was heavily involved but I never truly asked Jesus into my heart nor was I leading a life centered upon God’s will for my life.
Almost immediately, God began to open doors for me to keep accountable to my new found faith. Through a mutual friend and a little help from Myspace, I met my husband-to-be. Andy is the man of God that I always wanted but never knew I needed and with him I began my journey discovering the promises held for my life found in God’s Word. I even started to attend church with Andy, and while the church meets humbly in a local middle school, there is nothing less presented than the everlasting Word of God.
More recently I have been blessed beyond belief with the job that I always wanted. In college, a professor asked me what I wanted to do with my career, and I casually threw out that I wanted to work for a Christian magazine company. I had never truly looked into this field but it sounded like fun. The professor then told me that I shouldn’t be so ‘narrow-minded’ with keeping my focus limited to a Christ-centered company. In March of 2009, I started part time with Central Creative Group as a design intern but only six months later I made a huge change in my life, taking a step away from the comforts of my previous job, and began to work full time with them.
And even more recently as our company has taken on another member, I have felt my heart stirred by the passion of this company. I have been given a tremendous gift to not only work for a Christian company but to use this company as a means of reaching out to other believers in ways I had never known.
My faith has been undergoing a tremendous change. My knowledge of Christ has been expanding exponentially as I read through His Word, giving me an understanding of my place in this world, a world that is so much larger than myself. I am on a path to uncover my true passion in life; starting this blog to give myself a space to collect and share my thoughts on the road to discovery.
