Featuring our newest series – Living the Faith. This series is a collection of stories of faith from the youth of the Archdiocese of Perth.
“As a teenager, I travelled down a path that I thought would look “cool” and impress my peers. This only caused a lot of pain and confusion for me. It wasn’t until I was open to God and truly experienced his love and forgiveness that I realised a newfound inner peace and joy in my life.
I knew that I had to make some changes to my lifestyle, especially with the people I was hanging out with, the places I was going and my views on life. During this transformation, I was seeking the answers to life’s difficult questions and challenged myself to pursue the truth.
Before I found my faith, I was led by worldly things, but now with God at the centre of my life and having a personal relationship with Him, I try my best to live a life devoted to His will. This decision affects my work, friendships, family and my longing to seek the truth.
I now find peace dealing with the daily struggles that life throws at me, knowing that Jesus and His Blessed Mother are always by my side.”
