Praise His name. I am a 26-year old mother of my beautiful 2-year old daughter, Chanel. I was saved in 2004 at Calvary Chapel, baptized and made new. The Lord is very special in my life and He has kept me close. Whenever I have strayed too far, He has allowed me to come back. I love Jesus Christ for all He has done for me. I have struggled with addiction for 14 years of my life. Because of Him I stayed clean and sober one week shy of two years, so I know that He is successful in my life. Because of A Peaceful Habitation and all who support it, God has given me the opportunity to live free. I understand and believe that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, Philippians 4:13. I believe in prayer and wake up each day as a new woman for Him. APH has taught me how important my daily relationship with Jesus is in my recovery. I have learned to be accountable to all the people of support I have in my life because of APH. I have learned to love again, have hope, and accept help. I have learned to really live my life clean and sober. I am a better mother, daughter, granddaughter, friend, employee and sister in Christ. I ask for forgiveness and look to Him for guidance. He has saved us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son He loves in whom we have redemption for the forgiveness of sins. So thank you Leticia and all that have loved me graciously. My life was completely out of control, a never-ending downward spiral. And just when I thought it couldn’t get any worse, it did. It was my last trip to jail and I had no idea this time of how long I would be there. I opened a Bible and decided to attend the Bible study class. I continued to read and study the Bible while I was incarcerated and it was then that I turned my life over to the Lord. I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. The Lord had a plan for me and it was called “A Peaceful Habitation”. This program is a blessing in my life that will continue to help me stay in recovery long after I graduate. APH is giving me the structure, encouragement, and spiritual guidance I need to fulfill my God-given purpose in life.
