I just have to start off by saying how incredibly grateful I am to have found a relationship with God through the messages taught here at Remnant Fellowship. My family was introduced to Remnant through friends back in 2011 and then moved to Brentwood just two months after visiting. Here I have learned to put God first above everything else and seek His will for my life— and I have been so blessed because of it. Since putting God first above all else in my life, I am no longer self focused or depressed wondering what "my purpose" is, but I can truly say that now I have so much more love joy, peace, patience and all the other fruits of the Spirit in my heart that only comes from a true love for God and obedience to Him. I am surrounded by Saints who always point me back up to God whenever I am tested and I know any test is just refinement for God's holy people. Each day is so wonderful getting to grow closer to God and build his kingdom! I am forever grateful that my parents were seeking and found a place where our family could find a true connection with God!
" I am so very excited to marry Nick, knowing he will always lead our family in righteousness and keep God our focus.” - Celeste Muns
Since going "ALL IN" with this relationship with God, I've been blessed beyond what I deserve but my biggest blessing and answered prayer by far is marrying Nick! He is more than anything I could have ever prayed for or dreamed of. I'm so grateful to have a fiancé that puts God and His kingdom first in his life. He is so humble and always looks inward—he convicts me everyday and spurs me on for God. I am so very excited to marry Nick, knowing he will always lead our family in righteousness and keep God our focus. I am still in awe that I get to marry my best friend—the funniest, sweetest, most kind hearted and loving man I know. Everyday I fall MORE in love with him and can't believe this wonderful life we get to live together! I am so humbled and can't praise our merciful and generous God enough for all he has done in my life!
Words cannot describe how truly grateful I am that God has put Celeste and this Church into my life. I joined Remnant Fellowship in January 2016 and it is truly amazing just how quickly God can change a persons life. When I was growing up, I was always told that I was a "good kid" and before this message I believed that, until I found this place, full of godly people wanting nothing more than a whole-hearted relationship with God by putting His will first. Before this message I was extremely self-focused, full of greed, lust, seeking the praise of man, prideful, the list goes on and on. Looking back now, I was no where near what should be considered a "good kid". I started smoking cigarettes when I was 16 years old and many other things that I would rather not discuss because looking back at the person I was before sickens me. In January 2016, When I decided to go "All IN" for God, He gave back and blessed me tremendously in ways that were so remarkable and personal. God allowed me to quit smoking cold turkey, after 7 years of smoking and many attempts to quit. I realized the moment that I felt it on my heart that each time I smoked a cigarette, I was running to an idol for comfort instead of running to Him. Also, God has allowed me to lay down anger, lust, greed, pride, praise of man, among many other things—and has truly allowed me to feel nothing but indescribable joy because of this true relationship with the one and only God of the universe.

After my heart was right, and God became the number one love in my life, He then came back and gave me one of my biggest blessings of all, Celeste Muns. I do not know why God chose her for me, but I am beyond grateful that He did. Her purity and her love for God constantly convicts me and makes me want to strive to be better each and every day. Having a relationship that is built on the foundation of Jesus Christ has been indescribable. Because of what we have learned at Remnant Fellowship Church, throughout our relationship Celeste and I have not gotten into a single fight. When testing times arose instead of casting blame on one another we both would run to God first in prayer and look for His guidance, then look inwards to see if there is something we are doing wrong that needs to be changed in our own hearts. Celeste is truly the woman of my dreams—I prayed a lot for a woman like her and God certainly answered my prayers exceeding anything I could have imagined. Celeste is the most beautiful, sweet, loving, patient, funny, Godly woman I know and I truly can't believe God is allowing me to marry her. I give all praise to God for this amazing church, the abundant amount of godly examples I have around me, and this beautiful relationship that God has blessed me with. May Celeste and I always be lights to those around us, and may our marriage always bring glory to God!
