I like to think of myself as a woman of faith. I grew up in the United Methodist church, thanks to my parents, and for the first decade and a half of my life I simply accepted everything I heard there as fact. As a teen, I had my first experience that I refer to as a "crisis of faith." That means I began to question what I had been taught, and to look toward other sources for answers. Because of that, I have read the texts of several religions, and have found that I incorporate things from each of them into my current philosophy of life. I still attend a United Methodist church, but I don't always agree with everything I hear from the pulpit.
I found this definition of a woman of faith that I think sums me up pretty well. I do my best, every day, to be a living example of the love of Christ to everyone whose life I touch.
"A woman of faith loves the Lord. She wants Him to know it by the life she lives, by the words she speaks, by the service she renders to His children, by her every action. She knows that He loves her even though she is imperfect and still trying to be better. She knows that when she does her very best, that it is enough."
