I started drinking at 14. Dad ruled with an iron fist, and mom tried to protectus. It was very confusing. Both of my parents were alcoholics.I was a hard worker, but lost jobs because of my drinking. I was a printer for28 years. I’ve been married and divorced twice.For 12 years I’ve just been living life day to day. I became a Christian 5 yearsago, but I was still a slave to alcohol. I was homeless and came to the Bread of Life Mission. I was immediately accepted and felt comfortable right away.I knew I was supposed to be here.
I was in horrible physical shape, but because of being at the Mission, I’ve been slowly getting healthy again.I could barely walk across the street, but now when the guys walk with me, they have a hard time keeping up!It’s like night and day.I joined the intern/Discipleship Program at the end of March.I work in the front office and I do Bible studies and counsel with the pastor. Now I can understand the Biblemuch better. I’ve been growing by leaps and bounds.During this time that I have been growing and changing, I’ve begun a relationship with 3 out of the 4 of my kids.It’s coming along. I don’t know what the future holds, but I’m sharpening my skills and my self confidence isbeing restored. I’ve made healthy friendships here in Holbrook and am now going to two churches! The Lord hasbrought me a long way. This is exactly where I’m supposed to be. I’m saving money, learning to budget and am getting more and more stable each day.The Lord has always had a hand on me, but I when came to the Bread of Life, I forgave myself and that was BIG!Now I’m falling in love with Jesus more and more each day!
