WHO I AM

I thought I might create a page about who I am so you can get to know me a little bit better.

I am Britt, a 24 year old recent college graduate and an aspiring graphic designer who enjoys spending time handlettering, designing websites, photography, ice skating, and the beach.

I was born and raised in a christian family and became saved when I was 7 years old (a few months after my dad passed away). I think when he died, I realized that I wanted to go where he was and I was thinking about where I might go if I died. There have been many ups and downs along the way from then until now, but through those hard times it has truly brought me closer to God. I believe that if I never went through the things I had faced in the past that it truly wouldn't have made me the person I am today. I have often wondered where I would be without God or the trials I have faced.


My Beliefs:

I believe that God created everything (the earth, heavens, planets....everything) and we just didn't come to be or evolve. We are way to complex and detailed to just have "evolved". I believe that mankind had a choice of whether to sin, but we chose to sin and disobey God. When Adam and Eve sinned it effected all of mankind, resulting in the fall of man, resulting in sin to enter the world. Nobody is perfect, the only one who is perfect is God. In order for us to be able to go to heaven with God, He sent His Son, Jesus to earth to pay the price. Jesus was born on earth and was 100% man but also was 100% God, meaning that He had a human body, human attributes, suffered the same as we do, and was tempted the same as we are, but He also was still God and had a divine nature. Jesus died on the cross for our sins and rose from the dead 3 days later- something nobody has ever done before, proving that He was the Son of God.

 In order for us to become saved and live in heaven with God, we cannot just do good works or pray to a priest. We first have to realize that we are a sinner and that Jesus died just for you so you can go to heaven. God offered His Son for everyone so that we can go to heaven and live with Him for eternity. After we have asked God to come into our life we should  then ask forgiveness for our sins that we have done so we can start fresh and have a relationship with God.

Accepting God as our Savior may seem quite simple and we may feel like there should be more for us to do, but just by accepting God's gift and believing in Him we can  have eternal life! After we become saved we should continue to grow with God in a relationship and pray to Him, seeking His guidance and talking with Him. We should also be witnessing to others and be examples of God in our actions and words.
