About Tuckster

I was born in a Christian family and came to Christ when I was about 7 or 8, but I didn't give God full control of my life until this past summer. Because of that, my life was a roller coaster spiritually and mentally. It culminated this past year when I became overwhelmed with suicidal urges, anxiety, and the pressures that my parents and teachers were putting on me to be the best in everything. Everything changed when I went on a missions trip this past summer for 5 weeks. I learned who I am in Christ (deeply loved, completely forgiven, fully pleasing, totally accepted, powerfully equipped, and complete in Christ!) and who God is (spoiler alert: it's love), and I gave full control of my life to God. Since then, my focus has shifted from internal to external; rather than focusing on myself, I am now focused on obeying God's calling for my life and being a disciple who makes disciples. I'm always up for a conversation about STEM, writing, feminism, school, philosophy, religion, etc.
