How did you come to know Christ?

I grew up in a divorced situation with loving parents and a moderate commitment to practice their faith. I can recall my first encounter with God around 12 years old.  It was a foundational seed that planted a reverence for an all-powerful and all-knowing God who can see all my sin. Later, I watched members of my family come to know Christ and invited me to attend church. Many years later, the Lord would use a long-term relationship to bring me to a point of need.  It was only then that I decided to follow and have personal relationship with Jesus Christ (John 3:16).

Favorite Verses (most used):

2 Timothy 3:16, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness."
Proverbs 16:3 "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed."
Psalm 19:14, "May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

Fun Facts:

If you were stranded on a deserted island, which three books (besides the Bible) would you want with you?

  1. My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers
  2. Any encyclopedia since there would be lots of time to memorize facts
  3. Something funny like "The Far Side" (lots of deserted island humor)

Which Biblical character (apart from Christ) has impacted your life most?
Paul because once he came to know Christ personally as his Savior, his mission began and he never stopped until he was called Home.

Patience and that God is in control
