Life growing up was unsteady and my parents fought often. I never knew what mood my parents would be in so I found it best to stay in my room or at a friend’s house. I had my first drink when I was 9 years old and I was drinking on and off until I turned 19. By that time, I was in an unhealthy marriage with 2 kids and that’s when I started to drink heavily. I drank because it numbed the pain I was facing in my abusive marriage and the shame I felt about my past. What brought me to the Home of Hope was God. I was praying that He would bring me to a year long program to recover and learn how to do it through Him and His word. I’m hoping that this program will help bring me closer to God and that I’ll be able to live in his will for my life and all that He has for me.
