Dakota M.

Growing up my youth was rough in an abusive house while at my Dads. At my Mothers on the other hand, it was great, and that’s the only reason I know what love is. I started going to parties at a young age and soon found alcohol to be my best friend and ‘solution to my hurt’. Suicide attempt number 1 at age 18. Little did I know that was just the start. May of 2022 I accepted the Lord back into my life and I can now say for the first time since age 12 that I’m truly happy. Here at Teen Challenge, I plan to further my walk with the Lord to be able to eventually help others find the Lord and hurt no more.
