2019 Confirmand

Emily Lego, daughter of Amy & Joel Lego.My name is Emily Lego.  I attend Rock Falls High School and I am in the 9th grade.  I live with my parents and two older siblings.  I like to play volleyball, basketball, and softball.  I believe if you put the time and effort into what you love to do, you will succeed in it.  I wonder how   people know God is really here.  Do they sense God or can they feel God reach for them.  I hope that next year’s Confirmation class grows as close to God as I did through the Retreats and Confirmation Class.  I think that nothing is impossible as long as you try.  I am thankful for my family and friends.  I feel close to God when I am down or have a bad day or even when I am having a good day.  So how does knowing God loves me shape my life?  It motivates me to keep doing what I love and to push through the bad times because God will help you through it.  I live out my faith by going to church, praying, and participating in church events.  My Confirmation Bible verse is Joshua 1:9  “Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD you God will be with you wherever you go.”  If I could meet and visit with any person in the Bible it would be Adam and Eve.  I want to know what it was like to have to figure out how the world works with only one other person with you.  One confirmation memory that still brings me a smile is Scott when he would encourage us by throwing the ball while we were making Bible skits.
