    Setting Brushfires of Freedom by Don Jans

    ‘That’s When My Whole Life Changed.’


    Elizabeth finds peace, reunites with her children
    Elizabeth had an uneventful childhood until she got mixed up in the wrong crowd in 12th grade. “I was doing good until then,” she said. “Then I started ditching and using drugs. When I was 18, I went to jail.”
    A couple years later, Elizabeth got pregnant and stopped using. She had her daughter when she was 20. “I got into a relationship when my daughter was six months old and had two more kids, both boys. So I stayed clean for nine or 10 years.” But when her boys’ father went to jail, Elizabeth started using again and moved on to another relationship. “I was using still in 2018 when I got pregnant. I was discharged from the hospital without my baby. I left without him.”
    After moving from sister mission, Gary gains perspective
    Now 50 years old, Gary has a lot to reflect on. He’s had success and joy in work and family, and he’s also had loss and trauma. He’s stumbled in the last several years in his battle with alcohol, but is now focusing on following God’s lead. “I’m working on listening to God,” Gary said. “He’s been so faithful to me.”
