Today, Claire speaks to us about how trials can keep us close to God, and her dream to have her own reality show.
Spiritual growth focus at the moment: Trusting God in EVERY part of my life.
A one sentence bio of yourself: I try to seek life and love in all I do and say.
When did you first encounter God and how did you encounter Him? I have always grown up in the church but never had a relationship until I chose to seek a more deep relationship with God. After being baptized for a year and at a church retreat, I fell humbly before God and gave him everything.
What has helped you grow spiritually in this season? Being constantly bombarded with trials and staying close to God
Just read/currently reading (and what has it taught you?): Play with Fire… God takes you through the fire to REFINE AND DEFINE you. It’s to make you in his image. As a silversmith waits until he can see his reflection in the silver so he knows it’s ready, God keeps us in the fire until He can see His reflection in us.
