Lauren Daigle is encouraging teenagers to stand up to bullies knowing God is by their side.

"I would just say, 'Blessed are those who are persecuted.' That's what always comes to mind. I know that it's difficult and not everyone wants to be told about God, but I have found that people do love to hear that God is love and that He is kind," Daigle says.

At the Dove Awards show, Daigle was asked by a reporter to share her encouragement to the younger generation. 

"Anytime people hear that He is gentle and not this angry man, their guard is let down. It's a way to share the gospel, it's a way to tell others about Christ."

Daigle recalls when she was a teenager, trying to share her faith.

"When I was in high school, people would be getting bullied, and I was like, 'God, I want a backbone of boldness. Give me some sort of boldness where I can stand up to people who need to be stood up for.' If you ask God for that courage, He will give it to you."

Daigle performed her newest single 'Hold On to Me' during the Dove Awards. 

"Just know you're not the only one doing it. In the moment it may feel like you're the only one making a stand. But you're not the only one. There are others around you and we've got your back."
