The first 36 years of my life was a mess—a train wreck.
I was wandering aimlessly in the dark with my eyes closed not knowing what would happen next.
At 14, I started using (any and everything). And hanging around all the wrong people.
By 17, I was a full blown addict and alcoholic.
By the age of 29, I had been married twice, divorced once and became a widow. I had deep wounds from an abortion, and couldn’t cope with the suicide of my 2nd husband who was the father of my two daughters.
The last 8 years of my addiction, I was on meth. I ended up losing everything and was in jail facing manufacturing charges with my boyfriend.
I know this sounds tragic and hopeless. BUT GOD.
Yes, God. He stepped on the scene and saw me for who I really was—a woman of God, fearfully and wonderfully made with a purpose and worth.
It took time for me to find the woman God created me to be, but God put people in my life to love me, guide me, and mentor me in His Word.
Today, I have…
It’s a blessing every day to work at the Haven, to give back to other beautifully broken women, and to pour out what God has given me. God uses every dark place, every tear, and every hurt. He’ll heal life’s hurts, and use them for good, if we let Him.
So, let God turn your bad experiences into good life lessons. Let Him heal you, and use you to heal others just like He has done for me!
