Bethany Anding| Contributing Writer

My name is Bethany and I’m from Louisiana! I am an aspiring worship leader, I sing and play guitar! I love the Lord with all my heart, and I plan to pursue Jesus for as long as I am on this earth! I was raised in the church, but I never had a personal relationship with Jesus until I was 16, when he touched me in the back room of a church. I can’t wait to see what God does in my life, and in the lives of others!
