Saved (Salvation Story): On Good Friday in 1992, I was 5 years old, and my mother was reading to me and my brother. We read several stories together and then ended by reading the Easter story. I remember hearing that Jesus had died to take all the bad things that people do on Himself even though He was perfect, and I had heard that before. But this time I felt what I heard. After Mom had finished reading to us, I put my head down in my hands, and Mom asked, "What are you doing Justin?" I replied, "I'm thanking Him." Mom explained to me what it meant to give your life to God. Right there, in my living room, I gave my heart to Jesus and asked Him to be in charge of my life.

One of My Greatest Experiences with God: In 2013, I was on the edge of some very pivotal decisions in my life and was somewhat discouraged about my circumstances. I was spending some time with God in the morning as I often do, and He just dropped some peace into my life. He spoke to my heart and said that something was going to happen soon that would change my life forever, and that there were other things coming for which I needed to have patience. That year I met Rachel who now is my wife. I will never forget that time with God; He makes things so clear.

Most People Don’t Know This About Me:  Though it's not my typical preference of film, I have watched the movie Pride and Prejudice over 20 times, and I still enjoy it every time.
