Abandoned by my family as a young girl, I was determined never to count on anyone else in my life ever again, especially Jesus. Instead, I turned to drugs and alcohol. It led to a life of emptiness, crime and incarceration.
In jail one morning, I awoke to find my very own daughter was my new cell mate. I cannot express the horror, the sadness and the shame I felt. I knew that I had to become something new, something radically different than I was. And somehow, in that moment, I met Jesus.
From that day forward I have dedicated my life to Him. Life Challenge has helped me find a deeper relationship with Jesus. He is healing my family. My ex-husband, whom I had not seen in over twenty years, was at a recent LC rally at a local church. He is now re-connecting with our daughter. My favorite verse is Romans 10:9, “If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Praise God for His saving grace!
