Preschool 3 Teacher
Testimony of salvation:
I grew up in New Hampshire, and I was fortunate to have parents that love the Lord. I got saved at an early age, but didn’t start thinking about my own personal relationship with God until I was in 6th grade. This was a result of an awesome teacher that challenged us to examine ourselves, and live for the Lord. This is when I began to seek God, rely on Him, and have a desire to show others the love He shows me daily. When I was ready to graduate, I looked back on my years at school, and realized that I wanted to have an impact on other kids just like my 6th grade teacher. My current favorite verses are Lamentations 3:22-23, “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
