Diamonds are formed under intense stress and pressure and Hawk Nelson's latest album, Diamonds, explores how God uses our struggles to transform us. Lead singer Jon Steingard states, "Diamonds talks about how God can use pressure, struggle, trials, and stress in our life and make it into something stronger and more beautiful." Being diagnosed with stage 4 liver cancer at 19, a parent losing a four-month old baby to SIDS, a teacher giving her life to protect her young students through a tornado, and countless people being executed by ISIS seems incredibly unfair. Satan works hard during these times to fee you lies and make you assume you have failed God in some manner. God uses these exact situations to strengthen people with more inner beauty.
