It was the best thing that could have ever happened in my life. I know that God sent his only son Jesus to earth to die for my sins and will be coming back for me to spend eternity in heaven.

2. Do you use prayer in daily life?
I pray all the time throughout the day, for myself and for others. The bible says to continually pray to God. When you pray to God it gives him joy that he is being included in your life and problems. I think of it as talking to my children, it would be weird to not talk to them just as it would be not to pray to God. If they needed something and didn’t come to me before an uncle for example, I would be hurtful. You may not get what you are asking for because God know what you need. God will not give you more than you can handle, even though sometimes it doesn’t seem like it. Prayer isn’t to ask for worldly possessions, it is to talk to him and have a personal relationship with him. My greatest prayer and hope is that my children will come to know and have a personal relationship with God.
3. How do you express spirituality?
By constantly being in the word by reading the Bible daily and expressing to others the reason that I know I will go to heaven. In John 1:12 it says that all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, and also in Romans 10:13 it says that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved (New International Version). So if you confess that you are a sinner, ask for forgiveness, know that he sent his only son to die for our sins, and ask his to come into your heart, you will be saved.
