DanI have been raised in a Christian home, I have fantastic parents that I am truly grateful for. They educated me about God not by telling me, but by showing me in everything that they did.

But life is not always a smooth ride. At the age of 11, a very low point in my life, I tried committing suicide. For the next 7 years of my life, I battled with depression and self harm and felt like I could tell nobody about it, struggling with not only my own confidence but my confidence and faith in God. It came to one moment… I made a decision to get to know God personally and to go through life in relationship with Him. I suddenly knew I was loved, cherished and accepted by God, despite how damaged and bad I felt on the inside. Now, aged 22, I can see how the grace of God has been on my life and changed my life for the better.
