Hi, my name is Megan, a strong believer in Jesus Christ who struggles with trust, alongside many other character defects.
Every Thursday night, I have the honor to serve with a wonderful team of people in my home church through Celebrate Recovery - a ministry I had never heard of until moving to Clovis, and one that I thought “was not for me”. After all, I don’t have a drug or alcohol addiction, I’ve never served “real time” behind bars (although I have been handcuffed and held for a few hours, but that is another story), and I was not court mandated to attend. Why did I need to be there? What could I possibly receive from a ministry geared toward those hurting from addiction? That was my mindset until 7 months ago, when my entire world was flipped upside down and all I thought I knew, was quickly shattering to the ground in the fiercest way imaginable.

Saved at the age of eight, I didn’t really experience a dramatic change in my life the moment I accepted Christ. I mean, at eight I wasn’t heavily involved in sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll if you catch my drift. However, I did buy into a lie sold by satan himself, that I believe he attempts to sell to all new believers - that once I became a Christian, life was going to be incredibly easy. Now that I have Jesus on my side, bad days were a thing of the past, right?
Wrong. The good life lasted about a year, and then my parents got divorced. I remember it like it was yesterday. On that night it felt like my entire life was caving in. At nine years old, my family had been torn apart. I remember the anger and confusion I held towards God. As a Christian, why in the world would God allow such heartache to enter my family? A question that would go years unanswered.
