Raised a Christian

Whitney Meade grew up in a Christian household with strong, believing parents. She asked Jesus to come live in her heart as a young girl at her uncle’s church. She knew something had changed in her, even at the age of 7. She was very involved in church activities growing up, but she also craved acceptance from other people. She craved acceptance and popularity with her friends more than she desired relationship with God. She got into partying, but she maintained a “perfect” exterior. She was hurt a lot by her friends in high school, and she looked to college to fulfill her dreams. College was a rude awakening. She had always achieved everything she wanted, but that changed in college. She came to a place where she was utterly empty. Nothing filled that emptiness, and she finally turned back to God. This is her story.
