If you’ve read my about page, then you know that WiC stands for Walking in Christ. While I haven’t always been a Christian, and I certainly don’t consider myself a “Bible Thumper,” I do have my own story about how I found Him. Here’s a new article talking about how I became a Christian:
Christianity is More Than Just Words
As a child, I went to an Episcopal elementary school. Every Friday, we would file into the chapel and diligently recite the Lord’s Prayer. At home, however, there was no explanation of what I was doing in the chapel. My father, while a Christian, was married to an atheist. They believed in raising a child to form their own beliefs, not having faith instilled in them. When I entered into high school, my father made a few attempts to get me involved in the church, mostly by having me attend Sunday school. Again, there was no dialogue of what the point was. I remember thinking, “He wants me to act like them? They’re doing worse stuff than I am!”
It wasn’t until a few years after college that my journey to know Christ really began. I was working in a job I didn’t like, was friends with people who didn’t actually like me, and I was feeling alone. Fortunately, I did have one friend who actually cared. One friend who knew of a better way to live life. And while I was feeling lost, my friend offered a path to find happiness. He shared a way to find, receive, and ultimately give back love continuously and uncondtionally, and that path was through Jesus Christ.
Peace & Blessings,
