I knew that being a Christian was important, I did all of the things a Christian is “supposed” to do, going to church, inviting friends to church, going to youth group, etc. It was not until I was thirteen years old that I was introduced to Word of Life Island. While there, my camp counselors showed me how to live out an authentic Christian life. After going to camp and working the STC program on the Island for 6 years, I decided to attend the Word of Life Bible Institute in Florida. My year spent at the BI taught me how to have an authentic relationship with God and how to live out my faith on a daily basis. It is so important to know what you believe and how to share what you believe. That was exactly what I was taught to do at Word of Life!
