My name is Dallas Hillin. I grew up and still live in Henderson, TX. I’ve been married to my husband, James, and together we have five beautiful children. I’m a stay-at-home mom with huge aspirations to make a great change in my community. With their scholarship for free learning online, the Christian Leaders Institute is a blessing for me (Learn more about online Bible classes, Click Here).
My Youth and Challenges
I grew up in the Catholic church. On my father’s side, my grandmother always took us to church every Sunday morning for classes and mass. As a child, I enjoyed the classes. I was so excited when I got a reward for answering questions and participating. However, once my parents divorced, I lived with my mother. The weekly routine of the church was gone. Life with my mom was somewhat Godless as she struggled with her own demons. It left me with unanswered questions. Soon the curiosity went away.
It stayed like this throughout my childhood and into my young adult years. The demons my mom faced when I was a child crept onto me. I found myself struggling with depression, anxiety, and addiction. It wasn’t until I hit rock bottom that I found my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The moment I accepted God into my life, I found the love and peace I was always searching for. Most of all, I found the forgiveness I’d been craving for all my sins.
Learning at CLI
My spiritual goal is to help others who are in the same situation I was in. I want to be able to lead them to the path of Christ. I want to share the great joys and amazing miracles Jesus can make happen in their lives with them.
Christian Leaders Institute is a blessing. I’ve been looking at different schools and wondering how we could ever afford for me to go back to school. With five kids, any extra money quickly disappears. Once I found CLI, I was in disbelief that it was completely free. God answered my prayers! With their scholarship for free learning, CLI made it possible to further my knowledge and start building the bridge to my goals.
