"I grew up in church and heard all of the "right" messages about relationships, love and purity. Throughout my younger teen years, I found myself compromising my standards, prayers and hope of who God would bring me someday. Like many teen girls, I desperately longed for love and acceptance. I was left with a shattered heart and an unbearable void within me. I made decisions I counseled girls around me never to make and in situations I advised my friends never to be in. Through my failures and imperfections, God still loved me so much and he carried me out of the place I was in. He made me white as snow. Today, I am beyond blessed with an amazing man who is in love with Jesus. He loves me so beautifully every single day with no expectations other than to be the best me I can be in Christ."
