“My faith is everything to me. I did grow up in the church but I think maybe like some other people who grow up in the church you kind of get to a point where your faith really becomes your own and it’s not about what your parents say or what they believe” she said. “But it’s really like, ‘Oh no, this is real to me. I have experienced the presence of God and I know that this is my own faith.’”
