  • God is always watching you come and go

    As a child I was taught the scriptures. You could say my upbringing consisted of going to church. I lived a very sheltered life.  

    I’m so grateful to my parents that God was the main priority in our home. That is why I believe parents should teach their children in the ways of the Lord and do their best to live what they teach.

    I always knew God was watching everything I did, and hearing every word I spoke.  I was born again at the age of 11.

    “God carefully watches the goings on of all mankind.” (Job 34:21).
