Everyday thousands of children are being sexually abused. You can stop the abuse of at least one child by simply praying. You can possibly stop the abuse of thousands of children by forwarding the link in First Time Visitor? by email, Twitter or Facebook to every Christian you know. Save a child or lots of children!!!! Do Something, please!

Pray for God to stop 1 child from being molested today.
Pray for God to stop 1 child molestation happening now.
Pray for God to rescue 1 child from sexual slavery.
Pray for God to save 1 girl from genital circumcision.
Pray for God to stop 1 girl from becoming a child-bride.
If you have the faith pray for 100 children rather than one.

Drug Addict 'Comes Out' Clean and Holy

Victoria Berna, before and after
which one do you like?
Take a long hard look at this image. Both pictures here are me
... 10 years apart

Ten years ago my life was littered with crime, meth, homelessness, lies, and many other horrible things. I found myself in what I quite literally call "Hell on Earth". I knew OF God, but I didn't KNOW God. I thought that if God loved me, he wouldn't put me through these things. I clearly didn't know Him!

I put those that love me through their own Hell and I nearly lost them all. I defended those that enabled me and pushed away those that loved me and tried to help me. I lost so much... some of which I'll never get back.

Today I am more than seven years clean. Today my life is full of joy. I have a family that stuck it out and loves me more than ever. I have a husband that loves me. I have great friends. I have a cute little home. I have an education that I'm almost halfway done with. I have life. And above all, I have God! 

He was there with me the whole time and never left me. 
Today, I am thankful (and brave to do this)!

Someone out there needs to hear this. I may lose a few FB friends... people may judge me... others my shutter at the thought. I don't really care. Someone will appreciate this. And if it only opens one persons eyes, I've done my job.

Not sure why I thought it would be a good idea to pull up my mugshot and write out this testimony and share this tonight. Wait... yes I do... two of my friends are celebrating their 6 years CLEAN today! So here's to them, and to all of us that are living one day at a time. Congrats Joey and Patricia! I'm so proud of ya'll!!!

Update***: Due to the overwhelming positive response that I've recieved, I'm asking that this be shared with anyone whom might be struggling with this disease called addiction. There is hope! God bless! 

Victoria, you are my hero today. God bless you. Thank you for sharing.
