I had prayed in 95' to ask Jesus into my heart... But, I still had one foot in the world.. Then about a 2 years later something very traumatic happened in my life... I still haven't wrapped my brain around it... But, instead of turning to God, I turned to pills and alcohol... The pain was so great, I just wanted to be numb... I really did not know that the Lord could help me through this, so I went down my own path...
