Why Did You Give Your Life to Jesus?: My relationship with Jesus means the most to me. I love Him with all my heart, and praise God for what He's done in my life. I can't imagine my life without Jesus. Well, I can...and it would be horrible! He has given me love, forgiveness, compassion, and hope. It's amazing that Jesus died for all the things I've done wrong in my life! There is no other option for me but to serve the one true God, Jesus Christ.
Something God Has Taught You Recently:
God has taught me over the past 6 months to never forget His promises. Joining Skillet is something I've always wanted to do. It's been the desire of my heart to serve God through music, and He's given me that chance. He's taught me to look to Him for everything and to find strength through Jesus.
Who's Had The Biggest Influence on Your Life: Early on in my Christian walk my best friend Shelly Synder was a huge influence in my life and she continues to be. My elders also have helped shape who I am today.
What is Your Favorite Thing About Doing What You Do?: Knowing that I'm exactly where God wants me to be - doing something I enjoy for His glorification. Playing drums is so fun - I love it!
