I was an atheist


Featured image for “I was an atheist”

“I was an atheist, and God was not a part of my life growing up, but I had some friends who were Christians. When we hung out, they would share their experiences with church. Later, as a teenager I had a lot of emotional hurt and pain and questions, and I was looking for something to help deal with that pain, and those things my friends had shared came back to me. I went back to those friends and started going to church. From there, I was able to let go of old things that were holding me back in my faith.”


  1. My faith in how the Holy Spirit works is strengthened through reading your story. May you be blessed for sharing it.
