For years the pain inside her wounded soul was so intense her self-esteem hit rock bottom and she turned to sex, drugs and alcohol to numb the pain.

She was anorexic in her mid-twenties and dwindled down to 70 pounds. She suffered a stroke and was hospitalized.

By the time she was thirty, she was addicted to prescription drugs, marijuana, nicotine alcohol and sex, but by the grace of God, she overcame them and has been clean for almost three decades.
