“After being sexually abused as a child, I grew up believing I was unforgivable by a God I didn't really know. I attempted to cover the pain of my past with alcohol & drugs, but it only led me further into darkness. After serving a tour in Iraq, I lost my eye in a work accident and was introduced to pain medication. It was through a nightmarish experience with Fentanyl that I finally hit bottom. I was introduced to Celebrate Recovery, and that when everything changed! I learned who God is- that He loves me, and sent His Son to bring me healing and forgiveness! I know today that I am loved by my Heavenly Father. I am a grateful believer in Jesus Christ, who struggles with chemical dependency, PTSD & sexual abuse and my name is Aaron. Thanks for letting me share!

 

 

“Over the course of 10 years my life came apart. I became a drug addict, thief, and felon. The consequences of that life were loneliness, prison, or death. But God!
Through Celebrate Recovery, God showed me that I was created for a purpose so much greater than myself. I am no longer defined by my past choices in addiction. I am defined today by the God I serve, the ministry he has given me to serve in, the husband he has chosen me to serve with, and our family. A New Normal. A New Life. Full of choices... and the tools to make each of them matter everyday!”
