I have lived in St. Petersburg Florida my whole life and am very close to my family. I just graduated high school and I ended up going to college in Pensacola Florida which is about eight hours away. My Mom and Dad gave me the cross a few days before I left and told me to use it for strength, courage and confidence. I can do anything with the strength of the love I have and the spirit of the lord. The cross sits on my desk in my dorm room and I look at it every day. It reminds me of how grateful I am to have such a great family and of how strong I can actually be.
