Jessica focused her talk on: You are Bigger Than Your Struggle. She recounted her life of being born in Russia with missing bones in the lower part of her legs, to being adopted at the age of 18 months by a Baltimore family, to feeling angry at God for her disability, and enduring 25 surgeries and recoveries. Yet, through her honesty and vulnerability, she shared how she has overcome so many trials and now actively pursues Jesus. Jessica readily admits her life would have been easier with legs. However, she has discovered that God made her the way He did for a reason and that without legs she found swimming and a platform to share the goodness of God.
