John Harris

I accepted Christ as my personal savior at the early age of six. I was an "outstanding" athlete at multiple sports and found myself in a body cast after two hip surgeries when I was 12. After being told I would never walk properly, and never run, God and I had many conversations for a month. The anger stopped and I was at peace with my situation. I read the Bible through several times that year. I discovered that God is in control when I am not and I can rest in that.
