Learning Who God Really Is

Apr 3, 2019 4:19:13 PM

“As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” – John 13:34-35

Kristin Evans didn’t do middle ground. When she was in, she was all in. Growing up, she was deeply involved in a church: ministries, mission trips, retreats.

What most people didn’t know was that her mom struggled with addiction, and their chaotic home life was a stark contrast to their Sunday morning one. The inconsistency was confusing for Kristin as a child, and when the brokenness in their home finally came to light, the church shunned the family instead of helping them.

“So I just completely went the other way, because I just didn’t understand.”
