I could show you pictures including a beautiful home, driving my Ferrari, jet-setting all over the country, but none of that is who I am, and they gave me the kind of purpose I have today.
The fancy home, Ferrari, and the jet-setting are all gone, traded for a van, rental home, and a life of serving others and picking estates overflows my glass with peace, joy, and happiness.
Everything changed in 2016 when I had an experience that had to be Christ showing me the path to peace, joy, and happiness. Each day is a journey getting closer and building upon His foundation.
An invite to Antioch Christian Church in November 2016 launched into my journey, reading the Bible cover-to-cover in seven weeks.
Reading the Bible wasn't an easy feat, and it wasn't until Romans 8 where I began to feel that God would accept me in Heaven because of who I am and how I have lived my life.
I jumped into the launch of a Celebrate Recovery group at the beginning of 2017. This program led to attending Al-Anon(friends and families of Alcoholics) and participating in a twelve-step study with a sponsor.
The twelve-step study introduced the tools that I am using daily to navigate life.
Not long after, Antioch introduced Rooted, a ten-week and one-day study leading to a serious commitment to serving others both in Church and the community.
All of this is a drastic change to the way I live my life, helping me work harder, smarter, and enjoy every minute of every day, no matter what happens.
I've been able to work on building a business focused on picking estates, looking for the needle in the haystack, and allowing me to share my story with hundreds of others along the way.
Life keeps on getting better, and I love every minute, no matter good or bad. Every morning is a blessing to experience another opportunity here on earth.
