Welcome to my life as I struggle to raise 2 teenagers in the love of Jesus while being single, employed full-time, going back to college, surviving a bad break-up, AND living in sobriety and recovery!

I just took a huge step and opened up my blog to some very special friends, most of whom don't know what I've been going through. My reason for this is two-fold. 1) after living most of my adult life hiding from everything, especially the truth, I find I am having an overwhelming need to make my life an open book; and, 2) if I can help just one person by sharing my journey....well, then it will all be worth it. I want people who are struggling to know they are not alone and all they need to do is reach out. God is there. Waiting.
a Jesus girl;
a single mother of 3 (starting with a teen pregnancy at 17);
an addict/alcoholic in recovery;
struggling with depression:
a survivor of domestic abuse;
a full-time employee (of the most wonderful company in the world);
a college student (working toward my AA in Human Services with a minor in Alcohol/Drug Studies);
