Joanna Knecht was voted into the Hockinson Heights Church in Brush Prairie, Wash., on Sept. 9, 2017, by profession of faith.
Knecht was raised as a seventh-generation Adventist. She was baptized when she was junior age but as a young adult drifted away from the Lord.
She reconnected with the Lord in 2011. And gradually, she says, the Lord has helped her find her way back to the Adventist Church. As the ladies at Hockinson have connected with her, Knecht says, "I feel at home."
