"There was an assistant soccer coach when I was in high school who had a big impact on my life. She had this way about her that was different from anyone else I knew. She was friendly, funny, and just stood out. One day after practice she invited me to go get coffee, and we became friends. Eventually, she asked me to go to a Bible study with her. I had never had a relationship with God or tried to find out a lot about him. Because of my age, I didn't feel it was that important, but I went to the study anyway and then later went to church with her. I saw that she didn't just say one thing and do another, but that she really lived what she believed. Eventually, I became a believer and accepted Christ. Because of that coach's influence, my life is different now. She's a mentor, best friend, and like an older sister to me. She's helped me build a strong relationship with God."
