I came to Serenity Homes almost three years ago as a severely broken individual who wanted nothing to do with God or with being alive. My addiction had gotten the best of me and I had lost everything. Within my first few months here I started to get involved with the many service opportunities that are available and through this service work I began to form relationships with others in the community. I was beginning to see the love of God in those around me and began to learn how I could live in recovery, one day at a time. I still had some pretty heavy consequences to face but was able to walk through them. This program has given me the tools I need to live an authentic life and have helped me to regain my character, morals, values and self-respect. I had to leave for a year to serve time in prison, and though I was gone I was not forgotten. This community loved me, supported me and never left my side as I walked through my consequences. Serenity Homes saved my life and now I get to LIVE every day of it giving back and carrying the message to others. I am blessed beyond belief and I thank God every morning for placing me in this community. Serenity Homes is my family, my life, my love.
