I used to live purely for my own pleasure, not caring what the cost was or who I was hurting. Whether it drugs, alcohol or sex, I did whatever I wanted, thinking only of myself. I went from smoking weed in the living room to doing hardcore drugs with random people all before age 20. In the process, I lost myself, my friends, my family and most importantly my relationship with God. But I didn’t want to accept help.
In the year prior to entering Life Challenge, I was almost murdered and I overdosed several times. I saw where I was heading and realized something needed to be done. I remembered how it felt accepting Christ into my life before I turned my back on him. I decided to go into Life Challenge.
Since coming to LC and restoring my relationship with Jesus, He has dramatically turned my life around. My family relationship is the strongest it has been since I was a kid, and my father and I now have a great relationship. Jesus has opened doors and opportunities I never thought possible!
My favorite scripture is Philippians 3:13 ‘No dear brothers I am still not all I should be but I am bringing my energies to bear on this one thing: forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead.’
