How does a young boy with a promising future become a thief and a junkie and how does he turn his life around? That’s the story I unfold in the latest episode of my podcast, Bleeding Daylight.
Jacob Hill was a straight-A student with a dream of winning Olympic gold, but his life took a number of unexpected turns, including crime, drug addiction and coming very close to death. Some would say it’s a miracle that Jacob is alive today.
How did such a talented young man fall so far and how did he turn his life turn around? Today he’s a husband, father, author and pastor.
Jacob is my guest for this episode of Bleeding Daylight and you can hear his story by using the audio player below.

At 15, Jade Lewis was an aspiring young athlete. By 18 she was a heroin addict.
Many people told her she was hopeless and that she would never amount to anything. After being arrested for drug related charges she knew she had to do something to change her life. At the age of 22 Jade entered the Teen Challenge programme and was able to leave drugs behind. She has since dedicated her life to helping people of all ages, walks and professions to make changes to their own lives. Today she is an author, motivational speaker, mentor and role model to many.
Jade will be telling her story at a community drug prevention presentation in Midland, Western Australia on Sunday the 30th of May. Jade joined me on 98.5 Sonshine FM to talk about her story and the seminar.
