I first encountered God through the Sacrament of Reconciliation on a Life Teen retreat in high school. It was my first confession in eight years, and it prompted me to turn away from old habits to a new life in Christ. Shortly after, I began noticing a surprising desire to give my whole life to God, but I didn’t know how yet. This calling only grew during my year with NET Ministries and throughout my time at Benedictine College, so finally I said yes. Since then, following Christ has been an exhilarating adventure.
