Katie Piper: ‘My faith has helped get me through my trauma’

Share this:

I didn’t grow up in a religious family and I was never christened.  In fact, I think if my parents had tried to get me to believe, I would have rebelled because that was just the sort of teenager I was.  It took a chance encounter with a nurse, back when I was in hospital in 2008, for me to start my own journey with God.  During that period I felt so alone and depressed, and that nurse sat with me. Whenever she would see me, she would talk to me, sing to me, pray for me and read scripture.
