About Vaneetha Risner:
"I contracted polio as an infant and spent much of my childhood feeling like an outcast. I lived in and out of hospitals for years, trying to fit in to both worlds. On the outside I looked like the good girl, but inside I was a mess. Insecure and bitter, I never felt that I belonged anywhere.
I grew up going to church, yet it never meant anything to me. Church was filled with hypocrites, so I fit right in.
But when I was 16 years old, I met Jesus. And that changed everything."
