A Story of Love and Redemption By Eliya Criniere
I'm excited to share with you this amazing video interview of how my mom met my dad. Hearing my mom tell this story is so inspiring! Growing up, my mom was raised in a Christian family and had a powerful encounter with Jesus when she was 16 years old at a winter camp. However, she struggled with her identity and eventually left the faith in her late teens. By the time she was 19 years old, she had faced some tough times, became pregnant, and felt broken. Even though my mom faced the challenges of being a young single mother, she found love and support from her church family. Slowly but surely, she began to experience the grace and love of God in her life again, which included meeting my dad. It's incredible to see how my parents' love story began and how God wrote it from the very beginning.
I've also included some fun pictures of them together when they were younger.
