When Hamilton was 5 years old she gave her heart to Christ. After going through a lot of young bible studies, Hamilton said, “I just knew I wanted to serve God with my whole life and give everything I knew to Him.”

“The months before the attack happened, me and my mom had just been praying alot about what God’s will for my life was and what He wanted me to do. I just really wanted to glorify God through my surfing. I didn’t know exactly how or what to do … and then the attack came and life came to a halt.”
