Hi I was encouraged to write out my testimony a long time ago and I'm finally doing it. My story: Like most kids that grows up in church, I accepted Christ at a young age I think I was about 6 and I was hiding under my dining room table because of the storm and my sister comes under the table with me and tells me she's going to save me. Two or so years later life got turned upside down. My parents lost there business, my church home felt wrong, and then in 2012 we moved churches and I left everything I ever knew behind. Maybe to most kids that wouldn't matter that much, but being homeschooled the 2 friends I had at church was it. In 6th grade I began to self harm in 7th grade I tried to commit suicide twice in 8th grade I tried recommitting me life to Christ but it didn't stick I continued to self harm and I tried to commit suicide two more times until last summer I was at church camp and my big brother was my leader I pulled him aside and told him that I realized that I was piggybacking off my friends and families relationship with Christ and that needed to change he helped fully accept Christ for the first time, and my relationship just keeps getting stronger. I still struggle from time to time, sometimes falling back into my old habits seems easier then dealing with what's happening in a healthy way but Gods with me every step of the way.
