Grace is a popular Christian singer and vlogger, and was diagnosed with Tourette syndrome when she was a child.

According to PureFlix:

"When I was 11, I was diagnosed with Tourette syndrome, [obsessive-compulsive disorder], [attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder] and anxiety," she said. "And I was like, 'this is a lot of things to deal with, this is a lot of stuff on my plate.'"

The singer said that she found herself facing "insane depression" as she coped with these life-altering challenges—a depression that left her deeply impacted.

"I had moments of being suicidal, and I had moments of just feeling lost and just wanting to be finished and done," Grace said. "I had a kind of a mindset that I needed to get through my pain to experience joy—that I needed to get through the tunnel to see the light at the other end."

But she said she eventually realized that she didn't need to get to the end of the tunnel to see the light, and that God was ready the entire time to come alongside her and offer comfort.

"It's about realizing that, even when you're in the midst of the tunnel, God is reaching in there, and He's saying, 'I'm not about to make it perfect. I didn't say I was about to make it easy,'" she said. "Jesus was saying ... 'I'm going to reach in in the middle of that despair; I'm going to be there with you through it.'"

"My joy was not something that I had to wait for the pain to end. My joy was something that even though my pain was so great, God's joy was even greater," she added.

Grace said her sister, Morgan, was instrumental in encouraging her during this time.

Morgan also just gave birth to her first child, a son, with husband Patrick.
