Kristin Bielema, 2012

I used to be “one of those kids.” Throughout high school, I started to look to alcohol and boys as my main activities throughout the week and my way to get through the pain. I grew up in a Christian home, yet I never really had a relationship with God. When I started attending youth group at Rockford Reformed Church, I saw life in a new light. It was different for me. The things that were discussed were applicable to even my own life. Shortly after my first attendance, I reaccepted Christ as my Savior and Lord. And now, I am happy. I am finally happy.
