My Story - (Prelude)

The song Amazing Grace should be the theme song to my life. "I once was lost, but now am found." ... story of my life.

I come from a childhood of neglect and abuse. My biological mother was a drug addict and mentally disturbed. I've experience poverty, went hungry, been homeless, watched my mother get raped, been sexually abused, and have seen things out of nightmares. I survived and went on to live a dark life as a young adult. Everything that happened to me made me the person I am today. "The Phoenix must burn to emerge"... so I am a new creation out of what was and have emerged into a life full of so many blessings I sometimes feel like I am in a dream.

I don't question God for what happened to me. Evil is not of God, and without suffering how could we feel true happiness, or understand compassion? I am who I am because of my sufferings. I am adaptable, I learned to survive, I am strong, and bright. Writing my testimony down to share with the world has taught me a lot about myself and what kind of person God has molded me into.

"Clay must be happy in the good potters hands"
