What it was like?
Like being a prisoner in my own mind. Every day was darkness. Tired of living, tired of being a husband and father. Couldn't function each day without my poison.
Was arrested. After time I wanted nothing more than to be who God created me to be. I surrendered everything to the Lord and told Him that I would do whatever it takes to be the man, husband and father he created me to be. Two and a half years later I came home to my wife and children.
What it is like now?
It's awesome. Each day is a gift. My wife and I celebrate our 15 year wedding anniversary tomorrow (9/7/16). Last July I was able to walk my daughter down the aisle at her wedding. Nothing would of been possible without the Lord.
