I have been blessed by my experiences. They have helped shaped me into the woman I am today. From being an only child, to difficult experiences in college, to an amazing year in China & two difficult, growing, stretching years in Viet Nam, I carry my experiences with me. I'm thankful for the good and the not so good. Even though I, like most people, don't like to go through difficult times, I know that they have helped me grow. I have learned more about myself and God as a result. I don't want to go through them again but I am thankful.
