How did you come to know Christ? 
I attended a Christian camp in the second grade and understood that if I asked Jesus to forgive me, he would. Later in high school, I got involved in Young Life and my faith was really deepened.

Favorite Verse(s): 

Psalm 18:19 - He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.

Matthew 28:18-20 - Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
