My highschool sweetheart, Bryan Trosclair, and got married in September 1999. We have a very loving son, Ayden.
After my father passed away, I had such an emptiness in my heart. I was 16 years old at the time, and nothing I did could fill the hole in my heart. Bryan invited me to small group several times, and so one day I accepted. It was fun. I then went to a church service. You could say Jesus and I started our relationship that way, but it wasn’t until my first year of college that I truly surrendered and gave my heart to Him. The love I felt from God's people helped me open my heart to the only one Who could fill the emptiness in my heart.
