I am 35 and from Menomonee Falls, WI. Growing up, I experienced a lot of brokenness from rejection and abandonment. I have battled a 20-year addiction. At age 23, crack took over my life. I have been in and out of Adult and Teen Challenge centers since 2010. In October 2020, I was asked to leave the program for disobedience, I hit rock bottom this time and experienced homelessness. I felt alone, shameful, and afraid. Four months later, I cried out to God and flew out to Southern California to do Adult and Teen Challenge there. God is making all things new! He delivered me from a poverty mindset. I have received his love and found my worth. He has given me a voice to help others just like me. Now I am doing an internship at the Los Angeles Women’s Induction Center. I love worshipping and teaching. Matthew 16:25 “For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.” I am forever grateful to Adult and Teen Challenge for giving me a firm foundation.
