I want to share my story with you so that if you are experiencing any of the struggles I had in my own life, you might find hope, healing and victory as I have in Christ.
My life growing up was unstable at best. My home life and childhood was wrought with an alcoholic father, parents divorcing, my own struggles with emotional pain, drugs, alcohol, rape and abortion, all before the age of 18.
I continued on a self-destructive path, gaining over 80 pounds, continuing with a drug and alcohol addiction and just about completely self-destructing by the time I was 28. In my inner being I knew I needed to change. I needed to make a decision. Did I want to live or die? The very simplistic answer in my heart was...”I want to live, but how?”
I began my journey of self-improvement starting with my weight, I lost 80 pounds! I worked my way through all the destructive life situations one area at a time. Life was somewhat better but the hole in my heart was still there and I knew I had come to the end of myself. I was desperate to know what meaning life had. Did it have any purpose at all? Was there ever going to be a time where I would know what joy felt like? What love felt like? What peace felt like? I knew the answer was with God, but how do you “get God” into your life?
In November of 1990 I finally learned that a relationship with God came through a relationship with Jesus, who said “I am the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father but through Me.” John 14:6. I gave my life to Christ and since then my life has taken several twists and turns, with tragedies and blessings, loss of a spouse, becoming a single parent, meeting my new love, blending families and becoming a pastor’s wife! It’s been an amazing journey but I wouldn’t change a thing because through it all, I have come to know about GOD’S AMAZING LOVE and the transformation that is possible through a life lived with Him.
