For me, I have grown up with Christianity. Ever since I was born I have been in raised in church. The church I attended while growing up was great. It was a small church plant and we moved around a lot. My story starts with Sunday school and my hatred for it. It then moves to Good News Club which would make the biggest impact on my life.

My earliest memory of church was when we met above the thrift store in town. As the church began to grow, we moved different places. When I was around 2nd or 3rd grade my parents decided I needed to go to Sunday school. This did not go over very well. I hated being away from my parents at church.

I did not make it very far on my path towards becoming a teacher before I had a rough time. The education program required a lot of math classes.
