My Story:

Before God entered my heart, my life was full of broken relationships and a broken view of God. By God’s grace, in 2004 He began to work on my heart through the Catholic Church and I remember one night crying out to Him that I didn’t know who He was but I wanted to. Soon after, I was invited by a friend to The Chapel on North Forest Rd. in Williamsville, NY. My heart began to soften and respond and I received Christ into my life. I knew I had to leave my life of sin, of living on my own terms – so that’s what I did. My life has never been the same. I began my journey in learning more about Jesus, praying, reading my Bible every day, telling people about this change that happened in me. Since then, my worth and satisfaction is found in God alone. Life still has its struggles and I have my weaknesses but I do not have to walk through it by myself. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” -2 Corinthians 12:9

I am here today by God’s grace, serving Him through the marriage ministry at The Chapel. It has been amazing to see how God can take the broken and make it something useful for His purposes. I am so thankful to be a part of His mission in reaching every man, woman and child with His Good News.
