By 8th grade I was miserable

Ever since I was little I've been raised in a christian home. but not the kind you would think. this environment I was raised in only knew Gods name. 

We went to church like only once a month, and I would mess around the whole time. never listening.

Now when I was 2 I was diagnosed with type one diabetes. many people feel sympathy towards me because of this but don't understand I was raised knowing, so I don't know better.

I was SO mad at God for so long

My name is Colin, and this is the story of how I finally found Jesus. Before I start, I have to give you a little backstory about myself.

I went to a small country school until 8th grade, what that means is there were not many kids in the school. I was in the biggest class... of 6. 

My class consisted of 4 girls and two boys. Seth was the other boy in my class, we were almost instantly best friends because we were the only boys.

Enough is enough - I don’t fit in

My name is Damien, I am the author of this website (www.testimonies.com.au) and timidity, loneliness, afraid of the dark and not-fitting-in were my weaknesses when growing up.

I was brought up with non-believing but great parents who dabbled in eastern religious stuff. I had a go at reading the books around the house when I was bored trying to get into this, but the more I tried to see what people were searching for the more I got unsatisfied.
