It all started when I was 19. First I began using drugs, then I moved on to making and selling drugs as well. Somehow, I thought that lifestyle made me more attractive, physically and socially. When I began using needles to shoot up, everything started falling apart. I knew if something didn’t change, I was going to end up dead.
Before coming to Life Challenge, I was in jail for 9 months. My mom found out about Life Challenge from a family friend and gave me the information. I was in the program 30 days later and so much has already changed for the better in my life.
Now, I talk to God all day long! I have the desire to live in the light and Christ has become my best friend. He continues to heal my past hurts as well as mending my broken relationships.
My favorite scripture is Proverbs 3:5,6 ‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.’
