I can answer just about any question about Christian living, believing that the Biblical revelation is meant to deal with all of life. Though not every modern issue is addressed specifically in the Bible, I feel confident in applying the grand principles of love, submission and Christ-likeness to all issues. I can't answer some questions definitively simply because God has not given detailed information on some matters. I can draw valid conclusions from what God has revealed, though.
I was raised in the church from my childhood, and have had an interest in God, the Bible and spiritual things from a very early age. At around the age of 15, I felt led to pursue a future in full time ministry. I've been in professional ministry since 2003, but was very active in teaching and encouraging Christians long before that. I preached my first sermon at the age of 15 and have found great joy in teaching God's truths ever since!

Living out our trust in and devotion to Christ is what being a disciple is all about! Christian living is the goal of Christian learning, disciplines, and everything else. How we live is our 'proof in the pudding' as Christians.
I am, before anything else in this life, a disciple of Jesus Christ, and each day I am given another chance to become more like Him. I hope to lead the congregation under my care (and anyone else who will let me) to see themselves as disciples of Jesus above any other identity they have.
If we do not live lives of trust, we do not trust, and so obedience to Christ is the proof (not the cause) of our faith in Him as Lord. We embrace Him as Savior and serve Him as King. How can we hope to be saved if we ignore the King's commands? If Christ is the living One, people should be able to see Him alive in me!

Hi, Lisa, Please forgive me for taking so long to answer you. The terms "lesbian" and homosexual are confused in our society. For most, sexual desire for those of the same gender means you're homosexual
