As a small child my mother and I had Bible Studies together. I know that it was through her fervent prayer that God had a plan for my life.I am one of 11 children raised in the projects on the south side of Chicago.
I started smoking marijuana and using alcohol at age 13. My schooling was thus affected and my grades began to drop. I missed graduating high school by 1/4 of a credit.
At 18, I enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps where I served 4 years, completed my GED, served in an elite fighting force called "The Super Squad", and traveled the world. However, because of my addictions I was finally kicked out of the service in 1984.
A few years later I returned to Chicago and took with me a huge crack addiction which ruined my life. I lost many good jobs, including one with the Chicago Stock Exchange, and it ruined my marriage and self-respect. That addiction lasted 13 years!
While attending a local church in Chicago my pastor became aware of my struggles and one day handed me the telephone number to Teen Challenge. I entered Teen Challenge on March 10,1997 and gave my life to God. My first day there God took away my 21-year desire for drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes. I thank my God everyday for giving me a second chance.
I originally joined Teen Challenge to get rid of my addictions but in the process I have fallen in love with Jesus Christ! He has given me true freedom. God has blessed me with two full time jobs and uses me to bless others. One of those jobs includes being on staff at Milwaukee Teen Challenge as an intern. I donate time to the "Kids in The Hood" where I tutor math and I''ve done some volunteer work at Rawhide Boys Ranch as well as Trinity Equestrian Center.
I have recently created AWC Youth Ministry which is a performing Gospel ministry located in Wisconsin.
Proceeds from the sale of this CD goes to AWC Youth Ministry and JOY-CCA charity organization.
