I struggled with an addiction to alcohol for 13 years. I was in a deep depression and had no desire to live. I felt my life was empty and meaningless and I was angry with God. I was overwhelmed and did not see any way out of my despair when I heard about Mercy from a friend who knew a graduate of Mercy Multiplied.
During my time at Mercy, God has given me new life, hope, joy, peace, and dreams for the future. I have learned how to make good choices in everything I do, say, and think. I have also learned the power of God’s Word and how to replace all the lies I believed with God’s truth.
After graduation, I am going home to look for a job and attend college where I would like to major in Early Childhood Education. I plan to live life to the fullest and pursue my dreams of teaching children on the mission field.
