Before I started listening to K-LOVE, I was lost in every sense of the word. I was being hospitalized my junior year of high school for mental illness-depression and threats of suicide. I was adopted, and had more identity issues than I'm proud of. Before I went, I had made a new friend, Melissa during sophomore year. She is an avid supporter and listener of K-LOVE and encouraged me to give it a try. I never listened, and years later, I happened to be on the bus going to school my mid-senior year and going through the radio on my iPod. Mandissa's "Stronger" was playing, and at the time, I was faced with moving out of my parents' house and on my own for the first time. I felt so inspired and the tune was catchy too, so I listened more and more, and even now, my faith has grown and helped me blossom into a loving and self-assured Christian woman with more love than the world can handle. Some songs when I try to sing along (like Natalie Grant's "Alive") I even begin to cry a little and choke on my words. God has blessed me with the confidence to move through life, enough faith and love for myself to wholly love another, and contentment with less than most. Thank you, K-LOVE for all you do!! God bless!
