I guess you can say that we have what is known as traditional home setting a mommy, a daddy, a (wonderful) daughter and a son. Growing up I can remember a lot of family traditions that were very important to you and you made sure that we continued those traditions. One of my favorite traditions was getting together on Thanksgiving. Although we have family get together on a regular basis, it’s just something about getting together on Thanksgiving. Everyone brought a dish to be judged, games were played and we had good music to listen to. This was absolutely one of my most favorite memories.

    It is no longer something I do and then move on it is more something that I can feel, which just gives me so much more faith in God and what he can do. My personal “worship” time has reached a new level, and in my life there are so many things I am seeing happening by just being obedient and trying to worship God in my daily actions. I feel I still have a long way to go but I also believe I am on the right track. As a college group we have a service every Wednesday afternoon. As one of the music students every fortnight I get the privilege of being in the worship band, I feel that with this new found knowledge of worship that I am able to enter in a lot better then I used to be able to.…

    The pastor is very approachable and is willing to talk, pray, and listen to me. He encourages us all and always preaches the truth. I have met so many wonderful people at church that it is just such a blessing for all of the support.

Holidays were always eagerly anticipated as it was one of the few times throughout the year my entire extended family was together.…
