I grew up in a loving Christian home with 7 other siblings. My life started changing the year I graduated from high school. My mother got sick and went into cardiac arrest. She was brought back to life only to remain in a coma for the next 8 years. I was 17 and angry at God and my mother for abandoning me and my brothers. When I was 25 she passed away. Four years later, my sister died tragically in a car accident. I went into a very deep dark depression. I was in and out of jail, doing drugs, drinking, and going through countless abusive relationships. I ended up in prison at the age of 36. I felt the Lord’s peace while I was sitting on my bunk in my cell. I felt led to start a Bible study in prison and grew close with Jesus there. After I was released, I went to Great Lakes Adult and Teen Challenge and was blessed to graduate in 2012. I attended TCLI in Minneapolis, MN to grow in leadership. I am currently living for Jesus and managing a sober living home for women. God is teaching me to be content in all circumstances. I face each day because of my Savior Jesus. My life verse is Romans 12:2, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
