  9. Life Of A Quadriplegic - I GOT BAPTIZED!!!
    10 weeks ago I signed up for an in depth bible study course with 9 other dudes I’ve never met before. I’ve been bitter and angry towards God for some time now (for many different reasons) and I knew I needed a change. 10 weeks later and I can say that not only are the guys in my group friends, they’re family! Here, our Rooted group celebrated our accomplishments and a few of us (myself included) even got baptized. I know I’m not perfect and I will make plenty of mistakes along the way, but I can’t wait to see what God does for me and each and every one of us!
  10. Life Of A Quadriplegic - Exploring The Desert
