L.I.T. Shaped Me Into the Person I Am Today
I started L.I.T. when I was in fourth grade, and it shaped me into the person I am today. When I became “too old” to participate in L.I.T., I started to disciple two young girls, and I was able to watch them grow in their faith. L.I.T. showed me not only the importance of a daily walk with Christ but also the importance of discipleship.
L.I.T. Helped Me Fully Understand the Seriousness of Sharing my Faith
From the teachings of L.I.T., I have learned what it means to step up and be a leader. This gained character trait has not only aided me in the mission field but also in my relationships with the people around me. L.I.T. taught me the importance of having a daily quiet time, or time spent reading and listening to God’s Word.
Jesus came alive for me during my journey through L.I.T
"Jesus came alive for me during my journey through L.I.T as a young girl. He was no longer a nice idea or a story, but a Father, a friend, and the safest place I have ever come to know. I am endlessly thankful for the opportunities I was given to not only experience God at work first hand but to engage in that work with Him at such a young age.
L.I.T. Shaped My Spiritual Life Tremendously!
As a young girl, L.I.T. shaped my spiritual life tremendously! The key components were identity, leadership, and discipleship. I was taught my identity as a daughter and co-heir of Christ, and this life-transforming truth has made me the woman I am today. Through discipleship, I learned what it meant to live a life of integrity while following Jesus.
L.I.T. Played a Significant Role in My Spiritual Life-Pastor Joel Hayworth
Two things specifically that are a part of L.I.T. that have played significant roles in my spiritual formation are forming spiritual disciplines and using spiritual gifts in the local church. As a young believer, I was given a weekly Scripture verse to memorize and a daily passage to read.
