I have great admiration for adults over the age of 50 that have successfully navigated the many challenges of life with their faith intact. I enjoy encouraging them to live the second half of life with purpose, significance, and by making an impact that leaves a legacy in the Kingdom of God.
“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8
I grew up in a Christian family that attended church regularly. I was around 13 when I realized my own need for personal salvation and asked Jesus to be my Lord and Savior. My walk of faith has been and continues to be a journey of learning and growing.
