I grew up in a good home and good family. I knew about God but didn’t know God. I had a void in my heart that I tried to fill with all the things of the world – sex, drugs, you name it. Ultimately, I developed a relationship with cocaine that took me down a dark road of depravity. I was stealing and pawning everything I had – even the roof over my head. That’s when I received an opportunity to come to Teen Challenge. There I found out not only is God real, but He loves me and has a purpose and plan for me. My despair turned to hope. I’ve since had trials and difficulties, but He is always there to provide joy, peace, and strength to sustain me and help me move forward. Now I know I have a bright future. I have the opportunity to work with Teen Challenge, and I am happily married. It’s been over three years since I’ve graduated, and it’s been one awesome life lesson after another where God has shown Himself faithful.
