Lifted From the Rut arose from a culmination of my life experiences, successes, failures, redirected dreams and a resurrection of hope for a better life.
I believe we were created to thrive, not just survive in this life!
On June 8,2001, my life changed from one where alcohol was my master of 14 years, to a life free from alcohol and drug addiction….thanks to God and a community of people who have moved to the other side of addiction…for that I am grateful.
Over the years, I have learned a great deal about trials and believing that there is a great blessing on the other side of each trial….eventhough some of the trials of life can seem hopeless at times. When I went from hating the image in the mirror, to loving the image and the potential within, a huge paradigm shift happened. I have definitely made errors in sobriety, but it is in those life lessons I have discovered the beauty in learning from my mistakes.
It is my commitment to help others regain the hope in themselves that they too were created for a great purpose in life. To restore hope in others and to help lift them from their life ruts that seem to have stolen their confidence in who they are. God does not make junk!
As a father of two precious children, the husband of an amazing woman who chose me to be her life partner, a committed man to follow God’s leading in my life, and believer that anyone can change their path in life to discover and become their best, I am committing my life to help others love themselves again through this journey called Lifted From the Rut!
