First things first, I loves Jesus! I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon; It’s where my family and my haunted past live.  I was dragged into jail kicking and screaming on February 4 2000, a dope fiend, but I was released a hope fiend!  God did for me what I couldn't do for myself.  He loved me while I was unlovable and gave me hope when I was hopeless.

Now I boldly share my story of recovery with anyone who will listen.  

I began my recovery in the anonymous rooms of: AA, NA, CA, AL-Anon, OA and Oxford Houses. I thank God for all of these programs, I often say Jesus saved my soul, but the steps saved my life.  However, as for my recovery and my life, one thing was crystal clear,  Jesus Christ was my One and only Higher Power. God led me into a powerful church called New Beginnings and my Pastors, Larry and Tiz Huch saw the call of God on my life.  They trained me up as a leader and I was ordained a Recovery Pastor! I have been teaching the bible ever since,  and now I expand my reach to you through RecoveryChick, a Spirit-Led Recovery Community.

If you can name it, I’ve probably recovered from it or have walked someone else through it.  At the core of it all, I believe the Bible is the answer, Jesus paid the price, God is on the throne, and the Holy Spirit gives you and I the power to say yes to God and no to the things that try to destroy us.

I am here to let you know, I made it out, and so can you!
