Your Faith story:  I am the adult child of an addictive parent. I knew early on, probably by the age of 10, without a shadow of a doubt that my mom was a full blown addict. I grew up not understanding why I couldn't allow anyone to really love me. My mom graduated Jacob's Well in June 2011 and I walked across the threshold myself by the end of that very month. We were the first mother/daughter unit to graduate from Jacob's Well and I pray we are not the last. I had just been arrested in Livingston Parish for a DUI. I had made the decision to leave my parents home at the age of 17. I married young, my husband was on his own planet dealing with his own drug use and my son had been taken by my in-laws. I was raised by a Catholic dad, a Baptist mom, and a Pentecostal grandmother. To say that I was confused is an understatement. I learned at Jacob's Well how to have a solid relationship with the Creator of all Love, Who is Love Himself. After graduation on Christmas Day, 2011, my son was back under my roof and I was working full time, but I still fell due to my very own mistakes. I knew my only hope would to get back to the place that set me free. I graduated for the second time on September 28, 2013. Staying on as staff was the hardest decision I have ever made, but I am following the will of God and being completely obedient to His plan for my life by reaching others who suffer in graves dug by their own hands. I want to go home to my son as a whole mother, a solid mom with a sturdy foundation. I want to learn how to allow others into my heart and I need to be sure that I go home completely and utterly free from the things of my past that still come up and rear their ugly heads.

 

 

Fun things I do:  I love spending time with my son. I love to read because I gain so much knowledge from books. I immensely enjoy spending time with others when before I isolated. My grandmother's home is a place I like to visit because of the peace that surrounds her home.

Children:  One son (8)

 

Joined JW Staff:  October, 2014

Favorite Books (other than the Bible):  Anything by Nicolas Sparks or Joyce Meyers. I find a lot of inspiration from Joyce Meyers.

Favorite TV Shows/movies:  The Notebook, I don't watch a ton of TV. I have been without for nearly 9 months, but when I do, I enjoy watching shows that make me think, such as CSI and Criminal Minds

 

 

Looking at the past is no longer an option for me. I have to consciously make a head to heart connection that there is nothing in the past that I can change. My only option is forward momentum and my greatest joy comes from helping hurting people stand back up after being wounded on the battlefield of life. God is at the center of my life and my deepest desire is to stay in the center of His will.
