Hello. I thought I would message you our experience at 5Rrock Ranch. I had come to the end of myself. I had been saved as a child but ran from God for 15 years. In that year I had lost my kid’s father which put me over the edge of the already difficult life I was leading. I was trying to go to church with my kids because I new this was the right thing to do but was not attending regularly due to my addictions. My kids were going through a traumatic time with the loss of their father and I was not able to be there for them emotionally like they needed because I was unhealthy myself. My pastor from the church we were going to came to my house and asked if I was okay. I broke down and explained our situation. Broken and in need of healing he suggested the Ranch. I decided to quit smoking and every other thing I was doing that had to do with damaging my body.
My search for love has been quite an adventure and like most journeys there are moments of magnificent views and times where you slip on a rock and break your ankle; left alone to be consumed by wolves. This is the short version of my exhausting quest for approval.
Each day I played cards with darkness foolishly thinking my hand was good however the darkness consistently had the ace. My way of escape from physical and emotional pain became a monster which held me captive and was killing me slowly. Life as a heroin addict is all consuming. Mind, body, and spirit left in ruins with people watching the self- destruction...
