I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Psalms 91:2
When I was ten years old, I moved away from my hometown in Ohio. This process was really difficult for me because of my dad. He did not come with me. I remember saying my goodbyes full of tears before I let go of his grasp and before stepping into the car with my mom. After we finished moving into our new home here in North Carolina, it was hard to adjust. I missed my dad and the family I left behind. I started going to school and on my first day I felt like a complete stranger. Throughout my years living in North Carolina, I went to public school up until sixth grade. The year was coming to an end and my mom wanted me to transfer to a small church school in Wilmington. At first I was not happy with her decision and missed my friends from my previous school. Now, though, I am glad my mom made that decision for me because if I had not begun going to a Christian academy then I would not have ended up at Mount Pisgah Academy. I just want to thank God for leading me in the right direction and always showing me the way I need to go.
