Mary McDougal

DSC_6036My life growing up was one that some could only dream of– loving parents, strong bonds with 7 siblings, and lots of relatives and friends. But somewhere down the line, my dream life turned into a nightmare.

The enemy came in the form of a bottle of vodka. He convinced me he could make my life better than it already was. As the days turned into years, I worshipped and craved the enemy even more. I became distant, shameful, guilt-ridden and depressed. My hope was gone. I felt unloved, alone and worthless. On Easter Sunday of 2012, I fell head first down a flight of stairs. My roommate found me lying unconscious in a pool of blood.

God used her to save my life! Now, with a broken spirit and a broken jaw, Christ led me into His forgiving and loving arms. On June 12, I came to Life Challenge. I accepted Christ as my Savior. The Word is now my weapon to overcome the devil’s disguise.
