I spent my entire earlier life addicted to drugs and alcohol, since I was a teenager. I found myself alone, exhausted, and with no self-respect or love in my heart. I was on empty in every way possible. My two youngest boys were taken into state custody and my marriage was falling apart. So, I contacted Adult & Teen Challenge. While there my heart was renewed every day as my relationship with my Lord and Savior grew stronger. My identity changed from being a drug addict, poor mom, and nagging wife into a child of the Most High God. My husband and I renewing our vows, our family is fully restored, and I will be spending the rest of my life loving and ministering to others.
