Church member shares ‘minimony’ about meth addiction and spiritual healing through Celebrate Recovery


“Hello, my name is Mary and I am a faithful believer in Jesus Christ. It is an honor to share with you how my life has been changed due to his love. Twenty years ago my life was a mess. I was a meth addict.”


That’s the beginning of a “minimony” from a woman who was helped by the Celebrate Recovery program of the Eastridge Church of Christ in Rockwall, Texas. Blue Ribbon News features the testimony and provides information about the Texas church’s program.

A bit more from the testimony:
I had convinced myself that no one knew, because I was so good at hiding it. People knew; my family my so called friends, even people passing me on the street knew. Addicts are the best at lying to ourselves.
I became increasingly addicted and increasingly terrified. I was terrified that I would not be able to stop using meth. Meth was the source of my greatest joy, and my worst nightmare combined.
On a hot August night in 1994, I found myself in an Emergency Room. I was not sure how I had gotten there, or what was going on. I looked up at the faces of my family. Who had called them? How did they find out? A dear friend of my Step-mother’s happened to be on duty as a nurse at that hospital on that very night. She had called to let them know I had been dropped off there, and they needed to come quickly. I look back on that night and I know that God had a hand in all of that.
