Amazing Grace

From the time i was 13 i was addictted. First it was drinking as a teenager, the smoking pot.Then i fell in?love with a man who i knew did coke and in order to be closer to him i started doing it with him. ?I didn't think i had a problem and that i had it under control but i didn't. From this man i got pregnant and was still getting high, but still didn't see that i had a problem. Then i got ?introduced to free basing from my brother-in-law. That first hit i was addictted. From free basing to smoking crack was the hell i put myself in for 10 years. In those 10 years i sold body, food in the house, bill money , whatever i had to do for a hit. I was raising my grand daughters and my husband was my pimp. I tried to stop so many times and it didn't happen, it wasn't until i started praying to God for help. I put myself in a recovery house where the manager of the house took me to church where i got saved. I got saved and deliviered ?by the amazing grace of God. ?That was 15 years ago. There is a way out, there is hope, His name is Jesus.

Joe, I run a prevention program in Minnesota and just saw this survey last week while it was still open. I wanted to send it out to over 250 teachers that we work with. Is there a way to still take part, or is there another survey I could use? Thanks, Adam Pederson
Adam, On behalf of the Partnership Team we truly appreciate you sending out the survey to over 250 teachers! The survey has been opened again so you may continue to use it! Many Thanks, Marla
