Find Hope

Just wanted to end it all.

Ladonna

Do you want to know what reality is?

Decided to drive off a cliff.

David

I decided I was going to get up and I decided I was going to get in my car and drive up Glendora Mountain Road where teenagers would always drive drunk, and every few years someone would end up driving off a cliff.

Low self esteem, depressed, even by middle school.

Growing up I didn't have a very personal view of God.

Because I said "hi" she didn't kill herself.

Matt K

She later told that she was thinking about suicide, and that it was my simple hello that had let her know that she was alive.

Curled up in my closet to escape, but found purpose instead.

Kay

"The place that was a dark place to start with became my refuge."

My kids said sober up or we'll never talk again.

Dale

So, I had a glass of wine and I got a buzz. I thought; “This is pretty good.” I was immediately addicted.

A radical lesbian, consulting the dead—my new life moved beyond all that.

Amy M

"Suddenly I felt the real power and presence of God. It was like fire and electricity shooting through my body."

From broken desperation to complete restoration.

Julie

"I was trying to fix the hurts that were in my life by just numbing them. It wasn’t working. I knew something was wrong because I was ready to kill myself."

Convinced I was worthless.

Beth

I thought that I had nothing to live for. I thought that I was the most worthless mother on the face of the earth. I was no good as a wife. As a mother. As a daughter. As a friend

I thought fame was the answer .

Chris M

I began to fill it with my surroundings, which was women and alcohol. It wasn’t long until I found myself with a $70,000 a year cocaine addiction.
