I was born and raised in El Paso, TX into a loving Christian family who (I feel) brought me and the rest of my 8 brothers and sisters up using Proverbs 22:6 as our “Gonzalez Family” motto. We still had our fair share of issues, struggles and regrets, but God was always there to lift us back up, brush off our knees and push us along. He has always made himself evident in protecting us, providing for us and helping us make the best decisions we can. For me, I know Him on a personal level in my day-to-day relationship and walk with Him. I thank God always for the way my parents made sure that we understood how important a close personal relationship was with God!
