Personal Story: I was raised in a good home environment and asked Christ into my life at a young age. But as I got older, I chose to do things my way, instead of serving God as I had all my childhood. I was living for myself, and my choices kept me from having success, including challenges in football. In 1978, I was reacquainted with a cousin who I could see had the peace in his life that I was missing. Through his influence, I dedicated myself to a close walk with God. Things aren’t always great now, but when problems come, I know that God is faithful to give me the strength I need.
