From Trauma to Triumph
On October 25th, 2013 at the age of 16, my life changed in a blink of an eye. The doctors predicted that I would be paralyzed forever. Through a 6 month recovery process, intensive treatment and by the grace of God, I began to regain strength and walk. My testimony is powerful and further points out the power of prayer and boundless love of Jesus Christ. Miracles happen all around us although we feel that God isn't active in our own lives.
