On June 7, 1999, God delivered me from a 28-year addiction to alcohol. A week after that deliverance, God spoke to my heart, "There are hurting women out there and I need for you to share with them what I have done for you so that you can give them hope." I knew God was going to use me to help people with addictions, and when a friend from church called me in 2005 asking if I would be willing to help her start a women's faith-based rehabilitation program similar to Paducah Lifeline Ministries for men, I answered yes without hesitation! In 2006 the leadership at Paducah Lifeline Ministries approached our group of volunteers and asked us if we would like to merge with them and if I would like to serve on their board. Again, I was thrilled to say yes, and in January 2010 I also became the Executive Director. While addiction seems to be everywhere and growing worse in our community, I am fortunate to work with so many godly people that also love the unlovely. I have seen so many lives transformed and families restored as a result of the healing power that comes from Jesus Christ as he moves through those of us involved at Paducah Lifeline Ministries. It is so rewarding to see how often those who graduate from the program, not only recover but then come back and volunteer and serve others. My passion comes from deep within me and I long to help as many people as I can. We look for those who are broken and help them see the hope that they can be renewed if they want it and are willing to let go and let God transform them. Jesus delivered my husband six months after he delivered me, he and I are living proof that if you surrender totally to Jesus Christ he can give you a new life and set you free indeed!
