Kerestin Kozodoy – My Testimony

Screen Shot 2018-03-15 at 5.13.04 PM

Today marks a very special day for me. 6 years ago I decided to change my life. I am always on the fence about sharing my story out of fear of judgment but God is just too awesome not to share this day with you. I’m sharing this in my hope that my story could help someone currently struggling! 6 years ago I was dying. Not only physically but emotionally. My daily life consisted of only one thing and that was to get high. This was all after growing up as a very normal kid. I was a cheerleader and very outgoing. Did running start and always managed to get good grades in school. I was on a track to be quite successful in life. My hopes and the hopes of those around me were quite high when I graduated high school. But I traded this life for what I would call mere ‘existence.’ Without rambling to long about the past, I will just say that after 6 years my life is dramatically different. Although I have gained back many of the material things I had lost, what is truly important to me is the peace I have within myself. I have completely altered my approach to life. I am no longer a scared little kid, making decisions based on fear. I am rebuilding my relationships and I love my life today. After becoming a mother, I realized how much Jesus loves his children unconditionally even when we are in the darkest places in our lives. Prayer is so powerful and God does heal! I am an example of His grace. I’d like to say that if you are struggling with any sort of addiction, there is hope. I did not go into much detail about how I changed my life, but if anyone has questions I would be happy to answer. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of this journey with me and to my family who never gave up on me and loved me when I couldn’t love myself. Recovery has given me these two guys that mean the world to me. When I look at this photo I can’t help but be overcome with gratitude! “When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.” Isaiah 43:2
