Today, Brynn speaks to us about how God knows best, through it all.
Tell us a bit about how you grew up and your childhood: My name is Brynn. I grew up in a Catholic household, never really getting a understanding of Christ. I dreaded going to church and after I made my confirmation, my parents gave me the choice on what I wanted to practice. I didn’t go to a church for a year, and then I started going to a nondenominational Christian church. Since then, my relationship with Jesus grows every day.
Inspiring biblical passage of the moment: The Widow’s Offering in Mark 12 will always be my favorite because the theme of the story is something that I feel everyone should know.
Spiritual growth focus at the moment: Just growing my relationship with Jesus overall, and learning more about the Bible.
If you wrote a memoir, what would the title be? From The Bottom Up
When did you first encounter God and how did you encounter Him? Like I said, in the Catholic Church, I never felt connected to God. So I’d say that I first encountered Him in fall of 2018, just by going to church and feeling a connection.
What has helped you grow spiritually in this season? BIBLE! READ. READ. READ! It is everything we need to know.
Just read/currently reading (and what has it taught you?): I am reading Overcoming Anxiety, Worry, and Fear by Gregory L. Jantz. It has taught me so much about turning to God with my fears and letting Him take control; He knows better than me.
“He knows better than me.”
Top three essentials: iPhone/ computer for research, Bible, and pen.
How did God speak to you recently? God has spoken to me in times of stress and [in]friendship problems, just telling me to have a kind heart and everything will work out how He plans.
Hobby: Gymnastics, cheerleading, yoga, and spin class!
