I grew up in a home with divorced parents who backslid. I started experimenting with drugs and alcohol in my teens. By the age of 18, I was drinking daily. I would abuse substances to numb the pain of all my feelings and not wanting to live. I would black out daily and I had lost control of my life. I came to Teen Challenge to develop a relationship with Christ and to learn my identity in Him. My hope is that I will learn to truly trust in the Lord.
