I was born in 1982. Growing up in a Maronite family, I was a very religious teenager. I read the Bible three times a day. In the morning, I would read inspiring verses from the Psalms. After school, before doing my homework, I would read a passage from the Gospels, and before I went to bed, a passage from the Letters. I loved the Bible. It gave me strength, hope and joy. I wanted to be a missionary when I grew up, and even at a young age, I was a passionate preacher.
