    Growing up in a pastor's home I heard it all, in fact I'd seen it all, the good the bad and the ugly. Turned off toward religion at an early age, I looked towards other things the world had to offer. At 18 years old I was going to a Christian school with the focus of getting a scholarship and playing college football. But in the midst of all this religion, I found myself farther away from God than ever. I was living a double life, by day I could play the "church game" better than anyone, but inside I was dealing with a battle against porn that had been an issue for almost 10 years now. My junior rolls around and I made varsity team captain with big expectations for me. Fast forward to the third game of the season, I blew my knee out. I was out for the year. Now I found myself hating God, how could a loving God let this happen to me, everything I worked for gone......well little did I know that 3 years later after still battling with my pride, selfishness, lust, God hasn't wasted a second. I got saved going into my senior year, through many molding and humbling experiences, God has directed me towards a life of embracing my ugly past, and using it for His glory. I am now the youth pastor at my church with a passion in my heart for those struggling! PRAISE Him
