After Debbie’s husband passed away in his 40’s, her destructive addiction to alcohol began to consume her life. Recovery programs only helped short-term. She was stuck in the cycle of addiction and battling and periods of homelessness.

“I went through the whole thing—eviction, being homeless, finding a place, getting bored, going to treatment, staying sober for a couple of months, and then starting to drink again.”

Left with no hope, Debbie cried out to God, asking Him to provide a way out of her toxic lifestyle.

I said, “God, I said you gotta help me here!” I wasn’t ever a ‘God person’ I just said, “God, it’s either I’m going to kill myself, or you’re going to help me
