A Defining Moment

"I grew up practicing a completely different religion. We rarely missed a Sunday service and my dad was a founder of one of the largest temples in Sacramento. My family went through a difficult time when my dad was diagnosed with cancer and our family lost our finances through a court case. I was devasted on so many levels in my life at the time.  Often, I felt something was missing in my spiritual practices but, more than ever, I was seeking God. In 2011, I went in for an outpatient gallbladder surgery and nearly died on the surgery table.  I had a near-death experience and I discussed the details of my life with God. Soon after recovering, I decided to accept Christ. I even started praying with my dad and reading the Bible to him during his battle with cancer. It was an amazing time and I learned that my dad knew the Bible very well. God is such a good God. I have seen tremendous things in my own life and I can’t deny Christ’s love and grace over my life."
