After years of being hurt, used and abused, I lost myself. Through addiction, I became numb to life and pushed away everyone that loved me. I did not care about myself, my family or my future. All I cared about was my next fix. In my more lucid times, the depression would take over; I felt like no one would ever love me again. But then at Adult & Teen Challenge I came to know Christ and now I see myself from a whole new perspective. Life has a new meaning and my family means the world to me. My life is restored. I am so thankful for God’s forgiving grace and for a new life that I have found here.
