Every family in America knows someone dealing with addiction. There is a way out. Change can take place. After a childhood of school discipline and absenteeism, time spent in a mental institution,27 years of drug addiction, more than a decade in prisons, and visits to 10 rehabs, Christ changed me. Through His transformative power, I graduated with a degree in social work from the University of Southern Mississippi with a bachelor’s degree in May 2018, and with a master’s degree in May 2019. Rights restored through Ms. Legislation and currently work for the Federal Government. Now I want to share this story of grace and redemption. Invite me to share Unbelievably Amazing with your school/group/ organization, and/or your church family.
