My name is Kate. I was born and raised right here in beautiful Costa Mesa/Newport Beach. I went to high school at CdM and played basketball. After graduation I moved to Colorado and attended the University of Colorado, Boulder. College was an interesting time. When I first arrived at school I struggled to identify or click with a particular group of friends. As a result spent the majority of my college experience in the dark hole that heavy drug usage puts you in. Little did I know, God had other plans. As He would have it He had planted His seed in the form of a friend whose constant love and support saw me through. She chose to love me through all of my faults, shortcomings, and addictions. One night in her room in our sorority, after months of questions and seeking, I realized that the love she showed me was different. It was an everlasting bond that knew no boundaries and kept me coming back for more. It was the love of Christ. I knew I needed Him. I needed and continue to need His love and the identity that I was and would always be His. After graduation in 2008 I moved home and have been attending ROCKHARBOR ever since.
Being a follower of Christ calls for a different type of relationship with those around you. These relationships should be filled love, intentionality, and meaning. To me, life is all about those connections and how Christ's love is depicted through them. By participating in Circles I will have the opportunity to better equip myself to start and carry on those types of relationships in my life. The type of relationship that drew me to Him in the first place.
