Spiritual crises, as difficult as they can be in the life of a young Christian, are necessary for a person to truly understand and own their faith. Even though it was the most difficult period of my life, I wouldn’t hesitate to go through it again because I discovered what I truly believed and who I am. This is what I found during my own spiritual journey.
This verse from the Bible has brought me great inspiration in my own faith journey: “If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.” –Jeremiah 29:13 Photos courtesy of Madisyn House
