Hey, friends! I grew up in McKinney, Texas but now call Dallas home. After heading to California for college at Pepperdine, I returned to Texas and worked several years in the business world. Although I was raised attending church, my relationship with God was one of ‘earning’ His love through my good works (and thinking that I was constantly disappointing him). Upon attending a Watermark membership class in 2014, for the first time I understood that salvation is not earned but freely gifted (John 5:24). I realized that gift is given by the Lord’s grace through faith in Jesus (Ephesians 2:8-9), and there are no good works that could get me to Heaven.
I now serve on the Young Adults Team, where we are on mission to advance the hope found in Jesus to a connected and kinetic generation at The Porch - check us out on Tuesday nights!
