My Story


I would like to share my story with you:

“My birthday happens to be in February as well as HOEHA’s anniversary. February 2016 brought me to reflecting over the past 28 years. And 28 years ago, I started a recovery program that would change my life forever! You see, back then, I didn’t know why I was here, what my purpose was, nor who I was. What I did know, was I was beaten down, depressed, hurt, angry, spiritually bankrupt, and really didn’t want to be here. I was at the lowest point of my life, looking for an answer, and facing treatment for alcoholism. I checked myself into treatment not knowing what it was I was looking for. I just knew I didn’t want to live this way anymore. I just didn’t want to live. Little did I know this was going to be my light at the end of the tunnel. With a lot of support from my sponsor, family, and friends, I was on the road to recover; not without some kicking and screaming along the way! I didn’t like having to live life on life’s terms, facing the day or reality without a drink or blaming someone else. When I finally got that I needed to let go of my ways and let God into my life, my life began to change. I began to see a glimmer of hope, a little flicker of light at the end of the tunnel. I will never forget when I asked my daughter to come to our AA Conference closing celebration in California. When it was over, she turned to me and with the biggest hug said, ‘I am sooo Proud of You, Mom.’

Well, today, I am that light. I am a Lightworker for God. And I love my life, today!

As I continue my path of self-awareness and empowerment, my passion is to help others help themselves. I hope to inspire others with my wisdom in a heartfelt, sincere effort coming from my personal life experiences and transformation with Jesus.”
