I'm a believer in Jesus Christ. I believe in the Trinity. I believe that Jesus Christ, fully God and fully man, came to earth and even though He was sinless and perfect, He died on that cross at Calvary. I believe He was buried and on the third day He arose from the dead and ascended into Heaven. I believe the finished work of His death, burial, and resurrection is the only way for forgiveness of sins and salvation to all that believe. I LOVE to read and listen to music. I love watching NHL games! I enjoy crocheting and cross-stitching. I'm also a vegan. :)
