""If it didn't have a beautiful ending, my story would be too painful to tell.""
Addicted to alcohol by ten years old, a young girl's life was in shambles. As an adult, she sought relief from personal pain, used street drugs, gambled, and sought love and acceptance through homosexual relationships. Due to abuse from others and her own poor choices, she also suffered from serious health issues. After seeking professional counseling, help from rehab centers, and the use of pharmaceutical drugs, she still felt hopeless. Longing for change and feeling powerless to achieve it, Teri sought God's help as a last resort. She experienced many miraculous changes in her life. Because of God's power, she "turned over a new leaf."
