Life Verse: But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God. Acts 20:24
I was born in Mesa, Arizona and raised by devoted parents in Orange County, California. While in my twenties, God brought me to the heart-breaking realization everyone must come to – that I was a hopeless sinner who deserved God’s wrath.

I repented of my sins, embraced the free gift of God, and resolved to live for His pleasure.
