Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Jamie Grace learned two powerful lessons: one, that ministry is a way of life; two, that life is good, even when it’s hard. Diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome at age 11, her young life became a series of heartbreak and challenge, a long season of physical exhaustion, emotional stress and spiritual doubt.
Then one day, inspired by the powerful testimony of Tammy Trent on the Revolve Tour, Jamie Grace came to a life-changing conclusion. “I heard [Tammy] speak and I thought, ‘I’ve cried enough. It’s time to accept my joy.’ It was just the long process of finally realizing that, even with Tourette’s, I still have something to do with my life. I love to sing. I have a story, and I’ve got to share it.”
Fast-forward just three short years, and that decision is already bearing beautiful fruit, proving (again) that nothing is impossible with God. Today, at 19, Jamie Grace is a junior in college (yes, that’s right; she finished high school early), studying children’s ministry. She is sharing her story of resilience and hope in GraceTalk, a monthly mentoring group for young girls she started when she was 15, on JCTV’s “iShine KNECT,” and is now a featured speaker/performer on the 2011 Revolve Tour.
These are my favorite cuts from her album, "One Song at a Time."
