Part of coming to know Jesus is coming to know ourselves, Papa. Seeing all the things that we otherwise might wish to keep hidden. Even from our own minds."

In college, I was like most young men, doing what pleased me and looking out mainly for my own interest.

June 9, 2001, I received forgiveness and the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
