Hello, my name is Kelley and this is my life testimony. I am thirty – six years old. I grew up in the United States of America in South Jersey. I was raised Roman Catholic with two loving parents and I am the baby of five children. While growing up, my life was great. I was never in want or need for anything. In my adolescent years, I was sexually assaulted by six guys on the way home from school one day. This caused me to be rebellious. I was doing all the things that kids at that age shouldn’t have been doing. I graduated high school and did some college.
I moved to California and began a new life there for myself. I was self-sufficient in an amazing job. I had a car and my own place. All was good until I got a call stating that my father was diagnosed with lung cancer and had less than a year to live. I made a choice to go back to New Jersey to spend his last moments with him and the family. Upon coming back, it was very hard to see my father in such bad shape, and I didn’t know how to cope with it. I began using drugs to numb the pain. My father’s passing was extremely difficult for me and this began a downward spiral that became so unmanageable I eventually had to seek help for it.
I left the state and moved to New York. There, I sought help from a Christian counseling facility for a year and rebuilt my relationship with God and Jesus. I now stand firm in my faith in my life. I enjoy helping people and am a big encourager. I plan to travel the world to help the lost and spread the good news. Finding Christian Leaders Institute is a blessing for me. I look forward to seeing how and where God will use me in and for His Kingdom.
