Before going to Teen Challenge, Laura abused alcohol. “I was hungover all day at work with the shakes, until I could get my bottle,” she remembers.
She hid her vodka in water bottles and drank all evening until she passed out. After several years, her husband realized how serious her addiction was and left her.
“I decided to kill myself when my husband left me.”
That same day, a friend texted Laura, inviting her to attend the Christmas pageant at her church. “I don’t remember much of the play,” says Laura. “I bawled, and the peace of Jesus filled my heart. I decided to live my life differently.”
Laura’s friend helped her apply to Teen Challenge. Watch Laura’s journey of discovering how to embrace God’s love and make positive choices.
