Man-Hugs for Jimmy Lewis

Growing up I wasn’t too exposed to a certain church or religion in general. I was always taught to believe in God and Jesus Christ, but never raised in a habit of attending church. The rare times my family would attend usually would fall on Christmas and Easter. Then from about age ten to about age sixteen, I don’t remember ever attending church.

When I was about sixteen I experienced a spark of interest in religion. I have an aunt who is very open about her religious beliefs. She always sends religious cards and text messages with scriptures. Her example prompted me to discover my own personal beliefs. I started on my own reading Bible verses, and copy down favorites into a notebook. Soon after I realized that I had a lot of question that needed answering, so I asked my mom if we could start going to church again.
