It was in the early 80’s that four of us from different churches came together to answer a desperate need to launch “Christian 12 Step” programs in our valley. We worked and trained together then began meetings in our own churches. Here in the pages of “Yes You Can!!! Nothing is Impossible!” You will hear how (men, women and teens) lifelong struggles tremble at step one and today live out the joyous victories of passing through step 12. From Sorrow to Comfort, From Tears to joy . . . to each and every one the Holy Spirit showed up and showed us how to walk out as overcomers through the life changing power of the Word of God. By acknowledging our powerlessness . . . we received His power.
I am a native Idahoan born in Jerome to a strong pioneer family. Growing up brought about a constant change of places, which took me all over the Northwest until my early teens. My life was dramatically marked on July 26, 1953 while attending a youth camp in the mountains above Sun Valley. God drew me as a young teen to an altar of dedication. A dedication to become a foreign medical missionary. However, my life detoured from that mountain top experience into teenage rebellion, followed by marriage and four children. Twenty years later the scars of my life left a broken young woman. October 1974, God drew me weeping to another altar and set my life back on His course.
