From a young age I had to grow up quickly because I was responsible for my siblings. Luckily I was raised in a protective home, but I was emotionally neglected, and I felt very fearful. Later on in life I began losing myself to addictions like alcohol, meth, nicotine and codependent relationships. I used drugs to cover up all my pain and hurt. My mother was the one who brought me here to Teen Challenge when I realized I needed help. My hope while I’m here is to be reunited with my grandchildren, to know God‘s word, and to live in his peace and forgiveness.
Favorite Scripture: Luke 6:37 "Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
