In my life, faith became the thing that helped me face the injustices of life and helped me pull through no matter what was happening. Faith empowered me to face addiction and to celebrate 28 years of sobriety. Being a person of faith doesn’t mean I think I have all of the answers, but it simply means I believe in the One who does and lean into Him even when life is hard. It doesn’t mean I walk around judging people and thinking I’m better. It means I’m empowered to love people, knowing I’m no better than anybody else, and I am forgiven in Jesus from my sin, my failures, and my past. Easter is filled with memories and family and candy and all kinds of things, but the most important for me is faith. Easter is about hope for everyone in Jesus.
