My name is Allison. I wasn't raised in the church and I really knew nothing about God, Jesus or the Bible. Looking back, I guess I was always intrigued by faith, but never pursued it...Not until after the birth of my daughter, anyway...
About a year after my daughter was born, I ran into an old coworker/friend who's life had completely changed since I last saw her. She said the reason that her life was so different was because she had started going to Revolution Church and had given everything she was to God. My first reaction was thinking she was crazy, but a few weeks later I began to watch the services online. "Greater Than" was the first series that I watched and I was hooked!! I needed to know more, a lot more!
My daughter was a horrible sleeper the first 18 months, so I often found myself driving a screaming baby around until she would finally fall asleep. One day while out driving, I ended up in the parking lot of Revolution Church. I had never been there and really don't remember how I even found it. I parked my car thinking I would just sit and rest while my baby slept, but instead I found myself walking to the front of this huge church with a baby on my hip, $38 in my hand needing to give it to someone!
Thank God Lindsey Gerdes was there with a group of women planting flowers! Lindsey walked me inside and talked to me about Jesus and the church. She gave me my first Bible and showed me love and kindness for no other reason except for that is just who she is and what she does! I started attending church the very next Sunday.
That was almost 2 years ago now and I've attended almost every Sunday since. I was baptized last November (2015) by Lindsey and Jason. Currently, I'm serving in RevKids and have met many wonderful people along the way. My walk of faith has not been easy and continues to be a challenge everyday, but thanks to Revolution, I know I can walk strong in my faith and continue to grow and learn.
