About the author
Justin Gardner did not have a happy childhood. Abuse, violence and rejection led to a life doing and selling drugs as early as 12. By 14, he was out of school and out of home and was living a life of crime on the streets of Melbourne. In fact, some of the people that he grew up with are characters portrayed in the "Underbelly" TV series. At the age of 22, Justin was not only suicidal, but found himself heading down the path towards murder. He realised that the destructive life he had been living for so many years was only headed towards death, and he called out to Jesus to save him. His life took a massive turn and today, Justin is the senior pastor of Destiny Centre Christian church in Hoppers Crossing, Victoria. Justin has an insatiable love for God's word. His passion to see people grasp and apply God's principles and promises clearly comes through in his razor-sharp yet humorous speaking ability. Justin's focus never fades from his two-fold mission to see "the lost found and the found crowned" He loves to help people become all that God created them to be and for them to live an abundant life that will bless and impact other people's lives. Justin travels nationally and internationally, preaching to build and inspire the body of Christ. He has been happily married to his wife Kim since 1999 and has two sons, Davis and Oskar, whom he adores.
