For most of my life I’ve wanted to be in full-time ministry. There’s just something so life-giving about getting to serve people and see them blossom in their relationship with the Lord. So when I joined Youth With A Mission in 2008, I felt like I’d found my groove. I began to recognize my spiritual gifts, I was pushed to try new things, and I loved being a part of what God was doing in the lives of those around me. I felt pretty confident in who I was and what I had to offer, in terms of ministry.
Throw in one sweet baby, and the confidence I had in my calling was hanging on by a thread.
