After her first drink of alcohol at age seven to escape the pain of abuse, Evenly's life has had many ups and downs due to addiction. She is in recovery now through the help of the Lovelady Center.
Where God has brought me from:
I was born to two alcoholics. They drank all my life. I had my first drink when I was only seven, because I was trying to kill the pain of the sexual abuse from my step father. I married at a really young age to escape from the abuse.
God has moved things in my life that I thought no one could ever do. I have been here for three years. I have fallen a few times, however God has picked me back up every time and has never failed me. He has done beautiful things in my life. He has given me three children and three grandchildren. My youngest was born four months early, not breathing and only weighing 1 pound. They said she wouldn’t make it, but with a single prayer, I heard that first cry. It was the sweetest cry that I have ever heard. Today she is a healthy Beautiful 13 year old with the kindness personality that I know. God has done many miracles in my life. He has brought me from a half gallon of vodka to a life with Christ in my heart and my soul.
Thank you, Evenly
