Faith has always a part of my life, growing up with Christian parents, going to Church every Sunday but for a long time I think I was just going along with it, I called myself a Christian but it was never really a big part of my life or who I was. I lived life for myself, doing what I wanted to do and what I thought would make me happy.

It was only as I got older that I really, truly understood what it means to be a Christian, that it’s not about following rules but about having a relationship and ultimately its all about love. I realised that I’m loved more than I could ever comprehend, and seeing the way that love inspired people who loved me and everyone around them unconditionally made me completely confident in my beliefs. From then on my life completely changed, I stopped living a ‘me’ focused life and started trying to emulate God’s love in my own life, I am so much more confident and happy in my own life knowing that I am loved no matter what and I am filled with so much more joy, hope and love than I could have ever imagined and I know that whatever comes my way I am never alone and God is greater than anything else.
