Since I was a very young child I remember feeling like I did not really belong here, that I was never really going to feel at home here ~ on earth. When I was 16 years old my family was introduced to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For the first time in my life I had tasted the warm and comforting feeling of being home, of truly belonging, not specifically in the church but inside of myself~ my spirit. I suddenly felt a sense of self-worth that I had never before experienced. Although this feeling only presents itself in moments of time it was, and still is, a source of motivation for me, to press on, to not give up, to have faith that I will someday feel at home all of the time.
