Faithbuilders Series #1
By: Emilia Casillas
About the Book
Emilia Casillas has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. She believes faith is an intangible muscle that can be developed to become a more stable and healthier soul. But her spiritual life was not always so grounded. It all started at the early age of five. She held on to a shameful secret deep in herself for many years. She swore to herself that she would take it to the grave, where no living soul could ever find out. As Casillas struggled to find freedom from her past, due to the abuse she experienced, her battles with feelings of entrapment, her fears, and social anxiety got out of control.
Such feelings of entrapment lead Emilia to the arms of Jesus Christ, her savior. On this path her faith began to soar higher than ever before. The sudden grace of her heavenly father began to manifest in her life. God’s hand was at work day and night, healing the broken pieces from her mind, heart, and emotions that no self-help book or counselor could ever do.
Through the years, Emilia’s relationship with her omnipresent best friend, Jesus, has become a daily, tangible force in her life. There is a power in prayer. Jesus stated all you need is faith the size of one mustard seed. She likes to say, “You only need one mustard seed to make a whole lot of mustard.” Spending time in God’s word is never time wasted. Every trial leads to a testimony. In the Bible, the book of Romans 12:2, it says, “Do not be conformed to the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” The life struggle is challenging, but so much more is your faith, because “Jesus restores stronger than your past.”
