I am very blessed to have grown up in a Christian home. From a young age I began to realize I was a sinner and that I needed to put my trust in Jesus. One afternoon when I was about 5 or 6, I asked my Mom if she would show me how to be saved. She sat with me and showed me from the Bible how I could be freed from my sins and have a personal relationship with God. It was then that I made the decision to repent of my sins and put my trust in Jesus to save me. Over the next few years, the growth in my Christian walk was slow and at times not genuine. I found it easy to do and say the right things so I looked like a good Christian, but my motivation was to please myself and those around me instead of bringing glory to God. During my high school years, God began to work in my life through people and opportunities such as attending camp. I began to be more consistent in my devotions, and through this I began to have a deeper thirst for knowing God. As I continue striving to grow in my relationship with Christ, I am continually reminded of my great need for Him. I am so thankful to serve a faithful God whose mercies are new every morning!
As I look back, it seems music and ministry have always been a big part of my life. At a young age I began learning the violin, and it didn’t take long to develop a love for the instrument. Growing up I had many opportunities to serve in various music ministries at my church and in my community. I also had the privilege to serve in camp ministry for four summers. It was an amazing experience to see God at work each week as many children and teens professed Christ and made personal decisions of growth in their spiritual lives. Through working at Amazing Grace Baptist Camp this summer, God opened a door for me to be able to travel with the Frazor team this year as the violinist and music secretary for the team. I am excited to see how God will use this experience to grow my faith in Him, and I am humbled and thankful God has chosen me to do His ministry-reaching the lost!
