My testimonial

I feel like telling the world something.

A year ago, the bottom fell out of my universe. I had a successful law firm. When the mortgage crisis hit, Kern County was one of the worst hit counties in the entire country. My business just plummeted. A former employee filed a lawsuit against me. Many of my so-called "friends" turned on me when the money ran out. My new marriage soured. I had to borrow $300,000 dollars from my father to stay afloat. I became a fat, weak alcoholic who cried every day. I was the laughingstock of my community. I saw absolutely no future for me but sheer misery.

My business is turning around and the lawsuit was dismissed. I have new and better relationships. My marriage is wonderful and we are expecting another child. I am in the shape of my life. I have stopped drinking. I have never been happier and more at peace.

Never give up hope. Ask God to enter your heart and He can work miracles. Never feel that your life is a lost cause. Place all your troubles in His hands. My life is a living testament to His power and mercy.

Re: My testimonial

Great story. I'm sorry you had to go through that, but I'm sure you are much stronger, happier, and better because of it. Congratulations

Re: My testimonial

Thanks for posting. Glad to hear you weathered the storm and came out with a better outlook.

I think when you go through these tough times you can sink or soar. I am glad to see you soared. I know now you can get even more out of life because you now have the tools to help others along the way.

Awesome story! So glad to hear you're seeing the light at the end of the tunnel (and that it's not a freight train!).
