Hello, my name is Garrett Westcott. I was born into a white middle-class family. My dad worked two jobs in order to send me and my siblings to private Christian schools.
All my childhood I had gone to church, Sunday school, and had religion classes in school. However, it was not until I took a confirmation class after school in the eighth grade to become a member of my parents church that I remember really understanding the Christian faith. I do not even know if I believed in Jesus before then but I know I believed in God.
While attending college, I decided to cement in my Christian faith and did some truth searching to find reasons for my faith. I concluded that I believe that Christianity is the only true religion because of its love, righteousness, and miracles. I believe that Jesus was a true historical figure, the Son of God, and that He performed all the miracles in the Bible that it says He did including resurrecting from the dead. I believe this because the Apostles went to their horrible deaths attesting to Jesus' words and miracles for a good and loving cause.
Now, I am trying to bring people glimpses of the Christian faith through these poems in hopes that they too might someday decide to become Christians and receive eternal life.
I hope these poems will be a blessing to your life.
