I came to Celebrate Recovery to fix my husband. I figured when CR started at my church it would give me the tools I needed to change him. Me? I didn’t need CR... I just needed my husband to act right and everything would be fine!

Things took a dramatic turn when he didn’t make the changes I expected. I began drinking to manage my frustration around his refusal to work the program. How insane is that? I hit my bottom almost 3 years ago when I was arrested for driving under the influence, assault with a vehicle and carrying a concealed weapon. Apparently I wasn’t fine!

I spent the night in jail and it was one of the most terrifying and humiliating experiences of my life. When I got out I began to truly work my own program learning that not only did I struggle with alcohol, but also codependency. I joined a step study and began serving. I am now a leader at our CR, I have 30 months of sobriety and I am in the process of taking Celebrate Recovery into our local women’s prison! God truly used one of my worst experiences to shape me into my best self... and He’s not done with me yet!”
