I was born and raised in a Christian family and home, but my decision to accept Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior was my own, not anyone else's. I have ties to the Church of Christ, Calvary Chapel, and a different church that believes in Free Grace Theology.

I was raised in a religious family - actually, my mom's religion was different from my dad's, but my mom raised me with her religion (Tibetan Buddhism). I later became a Christian, then ended up miscellaneously spiritual. So I was raised by religious parents but also found God on my own :D

There are a lot of people in my family who are strongly religious (my mom is living in a monastery now, for instance); I've wondered if the propensity for it is genetic. I know religion has always interested me.
