John 8:36 “Therefore if the Son sets you free, you shall be free indeed.” My journey to freedom was not an easy one. It took me getting to a place in life where I told the Lord, “Please just take my life, it would be a lot easier on everyone if I was not around.” But the Lord had other plans. It started in a small town in Oklahoma. I grew up in a healthy home, and we attended church. At 16 I had a bad car wreck and was exposed to pain medications for the first time.
