I moved to Durant to attend Southeastern, my high school sweetheart; Marilyn followed me to Durant after she graduated and we married. I took a break during college to serve in the military. Marilyn completed college while I served in the military. I finished my service came home and completed college and we have made Durant our home.

I attended church most of my life, several different denominations and somehow didn’t realize there was the possibility of having a personal relationship with Jesus.

At 41 years of age I had a wonderful family, my own business and everything looked good on the outside. On the inside I was miserable; I was suffering from life’s hurts, hang-ups, and habits. I needed help. I cried out to God for that help. He heard me and he helped me. He saved me and brought Christian mentors into my life to help teach me Christ likeness.

In 2009 I was asked to be the Ministry Leader of the Celebrate Recovery ministry here at First Baptist Church Durant. I felt like this was a ministry that I could be used by the Lord to help others and I accepted.

I’ve been a Christian for 27 years, I’ve been sober for 27 years, and I’ve been in recovery for 7.5 years. Come join us at Celebrate Recovery Durant any Monday night. I’m looking forward to meeting you, and no matter what your hurt, hang up, or habit is, God wants to help you.
