A defining period of my life was actually in early middle school. I went through some pretty crazy battles. These struggles revolved around myself; I didn't know what it was/where it came from at the time, but it was Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. It's something I still have to deal with today, but back then symptoms were as strong as ever, and I had a really rough time of it. This was a time in my life where my faith was really encouraged to grow. My dependence on God flourished in such a trying situation as it was. Fear and doubt are two really big factors of OCD. It's different for everyone as to how it affects you, and there are many symptoms - most of which people are unaware. But Christ delivered me from contemplating suicide to conquering fears. He answered my broken prayers. I didn't know till several years later that it was OCD, and when I started researching the disorder I also researched treatments. I was thoroughly surprised to learn that the techniques used in professional cognitive therapy with OCD patients today were the exact same techniques I came up with at 12-13 without help from source. It was all God. He didn't get rid of the OCD, but He gave me the tools I needed to combat it. Since then I've grown in my faith even more and have really developed a relationship with Jesus. He's gotten me through some really hard times, and He has allowed me to share in some beautiful moments in life. Perhaps one of the most impactful things I've learned since over time is the importance of seeing other people the way He would see them. It can be so easy to judge and to be self-righteous in the process. But God has shown me that everyone - EVERYONE - has a story. And I suppose that's one reason why I love creating so much - I get to tell stories in so many different ways.
Honestly, Christopher is crazy. As one of the founders, Christopher has been passionately working around the clock with S.C. TreeHouse since 2009, and has never been paid for any of it. He has often been know to put all of his own personal funds into a project just to keep it going, and no one can stop him, especially since S.C. TreeHouse and most of what is does was his brain child. Anything donated through this form will go to helping make sure Christopher can keep walking down this path God has chosen for him.
