When asked why do you share your life’s story of the good and bad with  others—with a smile on her face, her reply is simply—I   share the love of a living God that has given me  grace and mercy,  so it does not matter what others thinks about me, except the one that has given me the assignment to help others know that…never be ashamed of your story it can help someone understand there is help, hope and treatment out there.

For  recovery is possible
