12 August 2018
I experienced childhood in a Christian home with my mom filling in as the spirtual leader of the family. She often reminded me (however on occasionally, it felt more like bothering) to peruse my Bible and Faith. We at times had great discussions about faith, and she clarified why she cared about my excellence in faith. In spite of the fact that I was grateful for a mother who tended to me, I couldn't have cared less about my advancement.

My adventure took me to Paine College, where I am currently attending and trying to find out about Christian people group and kinship, and truth pressures in Scripture. Paine helped me end up in a good environment; companions, educators and coaches permitted and urged me to find my identity and god's identity calling me to be. At Paine I encountered the delights and preliminaries of living in Christian people group. While it was urging and energizing to live with individual Christians, life at Paine was difficult. There was the time when I discovered my first year flat mate trusted ladies shouldn't be in service.
