Hello, my name is Jarret and I’m 24 years old. I was born with a disability called spina bifida. When I was younger I thought I was “normal” I didn’t think anything was wrong with me…until I got to middle school then high school. I was bullied a lot in high school. One day it was so bad I went home and told my mom I didn’t want to be here anymore, I wanted to end it all. I thought it would be so much easier for the people I loved and cared about, easier because they wouldn’t have the burden of taking care of me. When I told my mom this she told me to pray. I thought “ya like that’s going to do anything”, because I had a hard time believing in God. I decided to do it anyways and as soon as I said my prayer I felt so warm…it was like someone had wrapped their arms around me and was hugging me. I knew what that feeling was. I knew that was the love of God comforting me! I’m here today because of that. I now know that God will never leave me…he will never give me a trial I cannot handle!
