Although I grew up attending church every week and was even baptized, I never understood the basic truths of Christianity or knew that Jesus needed to be my Lord and Savior. Christianity was what you did and how you presented yourself to a congregation, not a relationship that engages your soul and encourages you to act. Until attending Summer Beach Project after my sophomore year of college, I believed that I had to perform well to receive any type of love. I sought affirmation and love through school and leadership opportunities and consistently came up short. Bound by performance that could never meet everyone's standards, including my own, I fell down at the cross for the first time. I am God’s freely beloved daughter and I seek to live my life so that His lost children may also find their identities in Jesus Christ.
