Mary’s Song taught me who I am in Christ and that is why I am sober today!

It has been 6 years since I walked into the doors of Mary’s Song. I never thought I would have the life I have today. He saved me from myself! There is so much God has done for me, it’s totally surreal. I’ve been sober for 6 years and graduated from the program! I’ve been working at Victory Fellowship for 4 1⁄2 years. I’m getting ready to graduate Bethesda College this year! I’m married to the most amazing man EVER for 2 years now. Now we are expecting our first baby girl!

When I walked into Mary’s Song I was only going to appease the judge and follow through with my probation. Ultimately I wanted to learn to “control my habit but God had a different plan. Proverbs 16:9 (NKJV), “A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps.” THANK YOU JESUS!!!!

My journey is not about the “things” that God has done for me or the “things” that I have accomplished since the program. This just shows how amazing God is and how much He loves us. Romans 5:8, “Even while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.” There wasn’t anything I could do or couldn’t do to earn His love. He simply just loves me! I look back now and I am totally amazed at the journey, and I know that it can only get better from here. I am so grateful for Mary’s Song! It isn’t a 12-step program that taught me to be sober, Mary’s Song taught me who I am in Christ and THAT is why I am sober today!
