While I was growing up I was bullied physically, mentally and sexually. I did graduate high school and even though I have been married twice, various addictions took their toll on my life. My first addiction was to pornography at the age of 13. I took a magazine from my neighbor’s mailbox. My addiction evolved into drug and alcohol use while I was still in high school. For many years of my life I have struggled with addiction in one form or another. Recently I came to Teen Challenge with the hope of restoring my relationship with Jesus Christ. I am tired of doing things my way and I have an honest desire to see what God has in store for me. I understand that my hope comes from the Lord, so I trust that he will help me accomplish his work that he started within me while I diligently stay plugged into this program and be led by Him in areas of ministry.
