How did you become a Christian?

After living most of my teen years as an atheist, a friend of mine, who was also far from God, gave his life to Christ. I quickly saw an unbelievable difference in his personality and his character. My head was filled with dark thoughts and hopelessness so I was naturally interested in what happened to my friend. As I investigated further, he and his dad shared the gospel with me and answered many of the doubts I had about Christianity. I soon gave my life to Jesus and watched my shame and hopelessness disappear!

What do you do for free time?

When my nose isn't buried in a book, I love hanging out with my family, watching virtually any sport on TV, and trying very hard not to be the worst golfer in Alabama.
