In Recovery Since 11/13/2021
I’m 57 years old and have lived a life full of trauma since the age of 13. I had low self-esteem due to my weight and being teased in school. A lot of people may not know this, but I have been dealing with substance use for about 15 years. Those closest to me knew. I decided 2021 was the year I would overcome my addiction and give back. I stopped letting my past be my downfall. I denounced all connections to my past. I now walk with my God-given purpose and calling by giving my testimony to hurting women with addictions and trauma. There is no looking back, and nothing will hold me back! I surrendered my life to God when I entered Journey to Freedom Recovery Program. I am now a peer counselor and mentor coordinator for Missouri High Steppers. I am training to become a Transformational Speaker/Life Coach. God has turned it all around for ME Hallelujah. I’m walking in my calling. Speaking to a hurting woman giving my testimony of where I was in darkness to how God brought me out into his marvelous light.
