In a span of two years, Devon had lost several people close to her, including her stepdad, her son, her best friend and her grandmother. When she came to a Northview service for the first time in 2014, Pastor Steve was preaching on grief.
"Week after week...it just felt like Pastor Steve was talking to me...It was just amazing, and everything just really hit home."
A professor in higher education where facts are everything, she categorized herself as an agnostic and didn’t identify with a particular faith. As Devon did her own research, participated in the Alpha course, and read "The Purpose Driven Life," she started getting some of her questions answered. The facts started lining up and turning into faith.
"It was really all the answers I had been looking for: What is the meaning of life? Why are we here? What is our purpose? What does God want me to do? It answered everything for me."
Devon accepted Christ and was baptized at Northview as an outward expression of her inward journey.
