Recent Graduate of a very expensive counseling program.
As a contributor to this article, I would like to add... I've always been a Christian and I met Jesus in the Baptist church at the age of 7! However I have not always held a strong faith, or one that casts out the fear of death. In fact I found death terrifying well into my 40s. God has granted me his grace and unmerited favor by allowing me some extra encouragement in this through my experiences. Now I'm convinced there is nothing to fear. If I did not have this faith in eternity, I would be a very miserable soul.
This is my hope and my faith, and I share it with respect for yours. Merry Christmas!
