My Testimony

The fact that I am alive today is a miracle. This is not a story about me. It is a story about God.

I have been a Christian all of my life. However, I struggled with addiction to alcohol and drugs and major clinical depression for thirty-eight years beginning at the age of fifteen.

As a consequence I lost my family, friends, marriage, career and health. I was suffering from end-stage liver disease and was told by doctors that I had less than a year to live unless I received a liver transplant. It was just me and God now.

Faced with what I thought was an impossible situation; I turned everything over to Him, asking only for His mercy and grace. And, Mercy and Grace is what I received. I can only say that what happened was nothing short of miraculous, the details of which only God could have arranged. This year I will celebrate the 10th anniversary of receiving my liver transplant and the eleventh year of sobriety.
