I was brought me up in a good church family, but I knew God in my head and not in my heart. In high school, I found a new group of friends who introduced me to marijuana and other drugs. As a result, I became very rebellious and my grades started to drop. I was in a courtroom every other month. Eventually the court took me away from my parents and put me in a state-sponsored rehab. That helped nothing — after that I went back to exactly what I was doing, but this time I began selling drugs to pay for my habit. Then, I hit rock bottom and that is when I found Adult & Teen Challenge. Since going there God has just completely changed me. I have a new mindset and a new perspective on life now. I have a strong desire to pursue God and His calling and purpose for my life.
