Ryan and Emily are a newly married couple, and have been learning how to encourage each other and sanctify one another through their union. Watch and listen to their Baptism stories!
Growing up, Ryan made a lot of efforts to be known as a good person, but never felt like he was good enough. Ryan came to Christ through Young Life, and for the first time he looked at the cross and felt a deep sense of gratitude for what Jesus has done for him.
Emily grew up in a Christian home but didn't really know Jesus for herself. With a tendency to people-please, she was stuck in a cycle of needing to be affirmed of. In High school Emily met Jesus, and since her gradual growth of knowing Christ and His unconditional love for her, she's been freed from people-pleasing.
