I started partying at a young age, and was lost in a world of alcoholism and addiction by my early 20’s. I straightened up for a bit, met a girl, and started a family. But after a couple of years she realized she could not fix me, and left with our daughter. That’s when my life became hell on earth. My family wanted nothing to do with me and I was homeless. A friend’s father let me stay with him for a few days. Rummaging through couch cushions in his house, I hit my knees and asked God “Why? I don’t want to live like this anymore.” That’s when I found a number my mom had stuck in my pocket when she packed by bags…the number for a man who could help me. This messenger from God drove 45 minutes to pray with me. A week later I walked through the doors of Teen Challenge of Texas. Since giving my life to Him, He has restored relationships – aside from Him, my mom is my best friend. Praise be to God!
