I LOVE church!..but I haven't always

In college I attended a congregation of my church that was just made up of young single adults. Most of them were my age and attending the same school as me. I loved to feel the spirit there and I loved learning about my Savior. However, there were always so many new people I didn't know.

I had a lot of anxiety trying to talk to people, especially people that seemed so much more confident and faithful than me! Eventually, I made many new friends and they have been a source of inspiration and strength to me in my life.

I learned that church is about more than growing closer to God. It is also about community, supporting fellow believers, and finding strength in others. When I moved across the country to Michigan, I found that same community. I love my church family!
