“When I was in eighth grade two of my cousins had to move in with me and my single mom. It was a really stressful time for my family and on top of that my dad decided to not be involved with me that year. I had so much anxiety and hurt and didn’t know why all of that was happening at one time. I had to give up my room and my personal space. I went to God and I found joy and peace. He was there for me even when family members weren’t. God will never leave me and I know that. My anxiety isn’t fully gone but when I pray it leaves. ” Abby Mock (16)
