“Finding purpose gave me hope for the future and real contentment in the ‘now’ no matter what happens.” by S
“More and more, I pray first, and then act. I have the Lord’s help to lead me to think and act differently and to trust Him.”  By C
“Knowing God has given me the strength to help pick myself up time and time again. Knowing God has helped me believe that I am special and worthy of wonderful things.”  by L
“Before I invited Him into my daily life, I was satisfied. Now, I am joyful. Before I knew Jesus’ love, I was anxious. Now I am more peaceful than I could’ve imagined. Before I knew Him, I was indifferent. Now I am thankful.” By P
“Prior to finding St. John’s I was a lukewarm  Christian; living my life with dabs of faith scattered within.  Upon  joining the Young Adult Bible Study I began to dig deeper, question  more, and grow my faith as part of my daily life.  I began to take my  questions to the priests, seeking further knowledge on how I could give  up my nominal life for one passionately on-fire for serving others in  the name of the Lord.   I am still growing, still learning, and more  on-fire for Christ than I have been in my entire life. ”   By Lane
“I grew up the son of a missionary in Central America.   I was self-centered and uncaring toward others.  I didn’t have any  direction in my life.  At about 12 I joined a youth group.  I accepted  Jesus when I learned that God had come to earth to serve and die for me. ”   By Stephen
“I believe God began working in my life when I was very  young  I grew up going to church.  And those early years were positive  experience for me as an adolescent in Sunday School, Bible School,  Catechism, and church.  But my relationship with Jesus was marked by  knowing him mostly in those settings.  Sunday morning was the time for  God, not Monday through Saturday.  However, seeds were planted and  watered and nurtured to grow.  Because of this, I’ve never ‘not known’  Jesus.  But as I became a young adult and I learned more of God, I began  to put His will foremost in my life (at least, some of the time).  That  was the beginning of a relationship that has matured over the years as I  continue to be watered and nurtured to grow.”   By Lynn
