My parents divorced before I was a year old. My Mom remarried and divorced again when I was 12. I endured sexual abuse. Not having either one of my father’s in my life and the pain of broken trust and betrayal led me to turn to drugs and alcohol to numb the pain. I then went through one relationship after another looking for love. I ended up marrying my drug dealer who was an alcoholic. That ended in divorce and I became a single Mom. This is where I turned to God and He picked me up out of a pit of shame and guilt. I married a man with 2 kids of his own and went through many struggles with being a blended family. Also struggled with a lot of anger. God would eventually bring hope and healing into my life.
