Catty- Passionate

“After spending the weekend learning so much about God, I felt a stirring in my heart but disregarded it as emotions because of what was happening. My small group leader reached for my hands and said, “Catty, I wouldn’t say this if I didn’t think it was the Holy Spirit, but I really feel like you should get baptized.” I sat there for a moment realizing that this stirring in my heart was not of me, but of God.”

Emerson - Pursued

“By the end of my sophomore year of college, I felt incredibly lost, I became self-centered, and I was mean. I thought that I could live in sin AND pursue God.

After experiencing a Godless upbringing and deep hurt in her teen years, Amanda was left with more questions that anything.
