From Addict to Minister
I was born in 1992 in Pennsylvania(USA) I grew up with just my mom and I. My dad passed away while I was very young. My mother and I always went to church and I always attended Youth Group.
But we stopped for about 5 years. I became a heroin addict when I was 22 and my life was going out of control. I knew God before, but I didn’t really know him. Then in September of 2016 we got arrested. I spent 5 months in the county prison and then went to rehab. After I was home for about a month I relapsed and overdosed from my very first bag of that poison. I was supposed to die. The doctors told my mother to call in the family to say goodbye. I was in a coma for 8 days on 100% life support. Then I just woke up one day.
I had a dream that God told me that it wasn’t my time. That’s when I REALLY met him. After I was home for a day or 2 from my 2 weeks long hospital stay I had another dream. God told me to use this experience to help others. He told me that I was spared for a reason. That is the reason why I am doing this. Because God actually told me!!
