Hello, my name is Deborah. In my home I was raised without God. My mother didn’t want me, and she made it clear. I grew up sustaining a lot of mental, emotional, physical and sexual abuse in my home. I was deeply depressed and angry. Kids were cruel because I was bi-racial, and so I got into drugs for relief and acceptance. I accepted Christ at 13 years old, but I had no real understanding as to how to walk with God. For over 30 years, I abused drugs and then I found Adult & Teen Challenge, and now I’m in love with God. Adult & Teen Challenge has given me the tools and mentors to help guide me and offer me a chance to heal. I am a new creation because He loves me. There is no turning back. Amen.
