“I grew up in the church, in a picture perfect family with Dad on the Elder board and Mom teaching Sunday School. I led small groups for youth group, dated a church boy, and my Myspace page declared my religious views as “a relationship and not a religion.” I knew all the answers and once got called a “Bible nerd” by the pastor’s son. I told my dad that I knew I was going to heaven just like I knew that two plus two equaled four, because my faith was just that real.”
I have the privilege of sharing some words on faith, doubt, and the great outdoors over at SheLoves Magazine today. They’re personal words and they’re true words and I hope you’ll hear the grace and hope in them as well. Maybe they’re the words you’ve been living too.
