My name is Lori Aguilar. I have two sons and the three of us moved to Keller about a year and half ago. I had never fully surrendered my life to Christ…we moved, things got busy, and I became disconnected in so many ways. I started to become someone that I truly wasn’t and I realized that the happy, fun, silly, party person that I thought I was—in reality—was not happy at all. I had learned to cope with my insecurities by pretending to be someone I was not.
In October 2017, I was invited to visit Milestone by my neighbor, Michaela Sims. My two sons and I met her and her sweet family at a service but what I didn’t realize at that time is that God was preparing me for something big.
On January 21 of this year I went to church, and Pastor Jeff shared a message about the Potter and the clay. It was so clear and I felt like God was speaking directly to me. I surrendered my life to Him during that service and one week later I was baptized!
The old Lori died and a new Lori was born.
This is who I am.
This is who He made me to be.
I now feel a peace and calmness that I’ve never felt before. I have a wonderful small group that is holding my hand through this journey and I also lead a small group at work during lunch on Fridays! I’m taking steps, but I know in my heart that this is who he made me to be. I am embracing these relationships and this is just the beginning of a beautiful journey with the Lord.
