I was born in Lagrange Texas. I grew up in church, received Jesus Christ as my personal savior at 11, and was discipled at 12. My family and I moved to Brazil as missionaries when I was 17. I was there for over a year. Upon returning to the U.S. I met my wife to be and we had 3 beautiful kids. We served the Lord and He richly blessed our lives. After 13 years of marriage we divorced. I was despondent, my identity was shattered. I was making a lot of money, but I was so empty. I journeyed down a very dark path trying to numb the constant pain. Clubs, bars and parties became the norm which led to a life of depravity fueled by alcohol, drugs and sexual immorality. I hit rock bottom and begged God to rescue me. I didn’t know where to go or what to do. Then God led me to U-Turn For Christ. I had no idea that a place like this existed. He used this ministry as a healing hospital and began to restore my life. Gods Word began the transformation. Jesus showed me who I am in Him. I am forgiven and I no longer walk in shame and guilt. I have come to a place of surrender. He has a plan and purpose for my life and Jesus works ALL THINGS FOR GOOD….. I know God is good, God is faithful, and God is for me. I desire to worship Him with my life for the rest of my days, for His glory, for His honor and for His praise!
