From the time I was sixteen my life was in a downward spiral, consumed by the enemy's lies and only living for the next high. There was nothing in my childhood that gave me an excuse to run like I had. I had two beautiful babies that I kept on the sidelines in what I consider a self-made hell choosing men and drugs over them time after time. I had a mother that could only help so much but then had to step back and only offer prayers. Eventually the only family I thought had was the dope man and a few others that were there only for the high. I became comfortable with that life and thought that this was the only life I would ever have.
In October 2015 I woke up in jail homesick, the worst part about being homesick is not having a home at all. Rock bottom was the only place I found rest and the first place I can really say I found Jesus. While in jail, Hope was introduced to me by Sue Cline and April Anderson. I was accepted into Hope Center for Women, a place I now call my home. Mercy overflows a thirsty soul and my soul was dehydrated. Because of Jesus and his unconditional love I now have joy and a beautiful future with a family that I can grow strong with.
Jeremiah 29:11 - For He knows the plans He has for me, plans to prosper and not to harm me, plans to give me hope and a future.
Jesus is my strong tower, fortress when I’m weak, His name is true and holy and His face is all I seek.
