Story of the Month
When I was 12 years old I moved in with my father, and that was the last time I ever saw my mother. My stepmother thought it was cool to give me drugs for my 13th birthday. I had no supervision, and what I thought was normal, was very dysfunctional. God gave me a son when I was 16. I did my best to love him, and be a good parent, but it was very hard, all I knew was a lifestyle of addiction. I wanted to change, but I was too ashamed to admit I was an addict, and too prideful to ask for help. I started seeking God and asking Him to change me. He blessed me by leading me to Chrysalis, where I finally got help. I have amazing Christian role models, and mentors, who guided me in seeking God’s will for my life. Today I’m clean and sober, and attending Paul Mitchell School of cosmetology. I’m on the honor roll and will graduate in August. I’ve redefined myself. I’m living proof that if you follow Jesus, you will find a new life. God has given me my heart’s desire by healing my family too! He’s so Good! This was Jennifer’s story card for her graduation in 2016.
Update: Jennifer is now a House Manager for a women’s recovery home and works in a salon doing hair and nails. Her life is wonderful and she is a great role model for all the women’s lives she touches on a daily basis.
