Pain = Purpose

“Saddle up your horses; we’ve got a trail to blaze. Through the wild blue yonder of God’s amazing grace.” These are the epic opening lyrics to the corny Steven Curtis Chapman song entitled “The Great Adventure.” It’s cheesy and full of over-the-top backup vocals, but the lyrics still ring true – regardless of the hairstyle…

I Almost Relapsed on the 4th of July

“I Will Not Use, No Matter What!” I wrote that phrase in my lecture notebook during my stay at Rob’s Ranch, and I still remember the exact moment I wrote it. A feeling of strength came over me as I made a personal mandate that I was done with my old way of living. This…

5 Years

Today I celebrate 5 years of living clean. Wow. That’s crazy to even say. It still doesn’t’ even seem to be real. This sober life. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been asking myself this question a lot…”what do I want people to know about the past 5 years of my life.” It’s a tough…

S.T.O.P the Negative Mix Tapes

Do you remember making Mix-Tapes for your girlfriend or boyfriend back in the day? I sure do. I was a mix-taping machine. Now, I will make this disclaimer, my mixtapes were actually mix-Cd’s, but I still did it and did it A-LOT! I would throw down some Boyz 2 Men, some Nsync, a little Savage…

My Moment

“We do not remember days, we remember moments” – Ceasre Paverse It was a normal morning.

My legs were kicking and my stomach was aching. I took…

You can admit to anything, especially when being pressured or confronted with the dreaded “choice” question. I can’t tell you how many stories of recovery I have heard…

Forgiving Me

I feel like it’s been too long since I opened up and shared something personal. So here goes… This is a letter I wrote myself 17 days into my rehab stint a few years back. Dear Lance, This letter is really not easy to write at this moment. The pain you inflicted on so many people still…

Who’s the Imposter?

From time to time, we ALL push for those around us to view us in a more favorable light. We portray one person at home, one person at work, one person at church and yet another on Facebook or Twitter. So, who are we really? Which person that we portray is our true self? Which one is the imposter?  And ultimately who do…

The Unfair Advantage of Your Story

I have something that no one else does. And so do you, it’s called my story. It’s perfectly mine and specifically purposed to help others. But so is yours! Because, as unique as each of us are, our struggles are oftentimes universally experienced. What I’ve gone through, so have others. What you are experiencing, so…

3 Signs Parents of Addicts Should Look For

When it comes to relapse, there’s a huge difference between someone who is early in their sobriety and those who have a few weeks, months, or years under their belt. No one is immune to relapse—“one day at a time,” and all that—but just like a newborn baby stands a greater chance of catching a…
