My name is Grace. I'm a daughter, a wife, a mother of two little ones and Vicar for St Luke's Leagrave.

I love dancing and can often be found dancing around the dining room with my kids while Abba, Usher, or Beyonce are blaring out of the speakers.

I've supported Compassion for at least 8 years and have seen the children I have sponsored change before my eyes: Becoming more confident, looking healthier and happier.

I was prompted to sponsor a child when I heard a talk given by the evangelist J.John who said these words: "Can we live simply, so others can simply live."

I'm taking part not because I'm amazing or fit, but because God has called me to do my little bit to help others live the abundant life Jesus came to bring.
