I didn't grow up with God in my life. I had a very difficult time with daily living in general. I was lonely, confused and scared most of the time. I became an Alcoholic. My drinking got really bad. I drank every day to the point of blacking out and passing out. I was losing everything. I couldn't quit. I couldn't quit for my husband, I couldn't quit for my kids, and I couldn't quit for myself. It was really scary.

I finally got to the point where I knew I couldn't quit drinking but I couldn't continue drinking either. It was a very hopeless state to be in. I even considered suicide because I felt that there was no way out. One night, at a point of complete despair I got down on my knees, threw up my arms and said "God, please take this from me! Please remove my desire to drink." It was at that moment that the obsession left me. I went to bed that night without taking a drink. I woke up the next morning without taking a drink. I was able to get into a recovery program and have been sober ever since. I will be celebrating ten years of sobriety this year.

I am so thankful that my terrible situation brought me to Christ. I don't know if I would have found Him any other way. My life today is so much different. I try to live for God, with His purpose in mind. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, and friend; a sober woman of God.
