I was blessed to be born into a family of believers whose lives are a testimony of God’s far-reaching grace. When I was five years old, the Holy Spirit began working in my heart and convicting me for the need of the Savior. Although I did not understand it fully at the time, I knew that there was something missing in my life. That same week on a Sunday night, a clear salvation message was preached about the need for repentance and a relationship with the Savior of the world. It finally clicked…that is what I had been missing! I raised my hand at the invitation and my dad took me aside after the service to pray.That night I repented of my sins and asked Jesus Christ to save my soul. The Lord put a new song in my heart and the verse Colossians 2:10 became real for me: “And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power.”

Growing up, I had many godly influences in my life that challenged me as I endeavored to draw closer to my Savior. In middle school, my dream of playing the violin finally came true and I took full advantage of it with being able to play in many different venues, including my city orchestra and symphony. I also took up the viola after becoming proficient on the violin. As high school was ending, the Lord made it clear that I was going to pursue a degree in biology from Pensacola Christian College. I grew tremendously in my walk with the Lord at college. Many different challenges that I faced during those four years made me realize what a deep and personal God I serve. Philippians 3:10 became my life verse, “That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;” As if salvation wasn’t enough, God calls us as individuals deeper still into a precious relationship with Him. Seeking and knowing Him first in everything then allows me, and even burdens me, to minister and share Him with others so that they may come to the saving knowledge of Christ.

After graduating this May, my plan was to pursue more schooling as a clinical laboratory scientist. But God had other plans as the Frazors reached out to me this summer and asked if I would join their team as a violinist and singer. That was not something that I had even considered doing after college, but God truly does work in mysterious ways! After much prayer and counsel, God made it abundantly clear that this is where He wants me for this season of life. I am privileged to be a part of this team and look forward to ministering with them this year.
