To be a Christian is to experience God’s love, tenderness, justice, goodness, righteousness and grace every day. Despite the struggles of this life, God is the same yesterday, today and forever, and his attitude towards us never changes. His perfection never dims. In the sorrow and brokenness of this world, God gives us a joy and a hope that reaches beyond this place; hope that reaches beyond death. Hope for a future in which there will be no more tears, mourning, death or pain, where our bodies will be redeemed and creation restored, and we will dwell with God for eternity. God has done all of this for us through the death of his Son, Jesus Christ, who took our place on the cross and bore the sins of the world. Who conquered death, and rose to life, giving us hope of resurrection.
This truth has defined my life since I was sixteen. Although raised in a Christian family, it was not until I experienced my own defining moments, searched my heart, and the Bible, that I saw my need for Jesus, and realised that I needed to share my hope with others. My greatest delight is to share Jesus with those around me.
I go to St John’s Presbyterian Church, and am studying a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery through the University of Tasmania. In my spare time, I love to read, write, play violin or piano, hike, surf and swim.
I have accepted this nomination because I believe that the Uni Fellowship can have a powerful impact on the lives of Christians and in the lives of those who do not yet know Christ. Being in community with other Christians is a great blessing, joy and comfort, and one of God’s greatest gifts.
