Here goes, my first post on this blog. I guess I'll start out by introducing myself. My name is Maddie, I am 20 years old, and a sophomore history major. I have lived all my life in New Hampshire where I currently go to school. For the past 7 months, I have been working as a resident assistant which has been one of the most challenging jobs of my life. I am an honors student, although my procrastination habits would have you think otherwise. I enjoy a variety of activities including swing dancing, historical research, singing, sewing, drawing, yoga, horseback riding, laughing, and studying the Bible.
Although I was baptized Catholic and raised in a Presbyterian Church, I had my doubts about the Savior until my freshman year of college. I remember the exact moment when He revealed himself to me during a campus worship service. My life has changed drastically since finding Him. Jesus is indeed my strength and my salvation. It has been strange and uplifting to see the changes in my life because of Him, and I use every opportunity to sing His praises.
Today I went to church at the community church downtown for the Palm Sunday service. I had previously attended four or five churches in the area surrounding the university until I found this loving and welcoming church just three weeks ago. Our God certainly is an Awesome God in His plan for our lives. Without Him, I would never have had the courage to try this wonderful place.
It feels wonderful to praise the Lord in writing. I have never done it before, but I'm beginning to like it more and more. I hope that this is the beginning of something wonderful!
