Becoming Who God Wanted Me to BE
Hi, my name is Tamara Purvis, and I am from Canada. I am getting further Biblical education at the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about free ministry training and further Biblical education online, Click Here).
Loving God at a Young Age
I have been a born-again Christian ever since I accepted Christ into my heart at the age of six. At nine, I was baptized. At that time, I knew that I was a servant of God – willing to do whatever He asked of me. When I became a teenager, I listened to a gentleman’s testimony and realized that my life was very boring. So, I prayed that God would be able to use me in His Kingdom.
God is good and God is love. However, His definition of good and love is not always the same as my definition of good and love. What I needed in my life, according to my Saviour, was to undergo some BIG and small trials and tribulations. He wanted to shape me, mold me, and make me into silver, into a diamond, and into someone, He could use. However, the trials and tribulations broke me. Thankfully, God loves turning nobodies into somebodies, and He is not done with me.
Further Biblical Education at CLI
My passion is for education. I’m a high school teacher (Physical Education Specialist, Special Education Specialist, and English) and a single mother of two teenagers. Up until COVID, I was very active in my church as a Sunday School Leader, in women’s ministry, and in the AWANAS program.
I am looking for my next adventure with my God by taking further Biblical education at the Christian Leaders Institute. I am excited about this opportunity for free online training.
