It never gets old introducing you to new people and their stories. To be honest I had to be reintroduced to Skylar. I knew Skylar and her family from KC days and the last time I had seen Skylar she was maybe 10 years old. Yeah, she's not 10 anymore. So meet Skylar.
When I first started high school I wasn't very sure what I was doing or even who I was. My middle school split into two separate high schools and it seemed as if all of my friends went to the school that I didn't. My brother was a senior at Raytown South when I was a freshman so I decided to go ahead and try it out at South, so I could go to school with him, but it just didn't seem to fit.
The following summer I made the decision to transfer schools and go to Raytown. My sophomore year was one of the best or so it seemed. I made the volleyball team, I was in choir and I reunited with all of my middle school friends. I had a lot of the things that should have made me happy but still more often than not I felt like something was missing.
During my junior year, I realized I was more lost than ever and I was living a double life in a sense. I got caught up in all of the wrong things.
I had always grown up in church and gone to church camps and all of that. But nothing ever really clicked for me and I usually didn't take it seriously. I accepted Christ into my heart at 6 years old. But at the end of my junior year, I realized that I really didn't have Christ living in me and guiding my life. I didn't put my trust in Him or come to Him with my worries. And that's what was missing in my life.
In January of 2016 I gave my life to Christ again and since that day I have been happier than ever. There is no longer anything that I feel like is missing because God provides anything and everything I need. Considering that my senior year might be one of the most stressful years, I know I have God by my side the entire way. He knows the desires of my heart and any questions I might have about college or my future, He knows the answer.
