The Testimony of My Life

First off let me start by saying that I come from a good family…

My mother & father were both very hard workers who loved their children very much, supplied us with everything that we needed, and just about everything else that we wanted, but they knew where to draw the line to keep us from becoming spoiled…

I was raised in Ocala, FLA.  This has been my home from the day of my conception, I grew up attending local schools and I was liked by many…

My life was Peaches & Cream until age 17 when I started to use drugs at first it was Marijuana and then I started using hard drugs, such as Cocaine & Crack which is another form Cocaine…

From that point on my life was in complete turmoil everything that I touched from that point on I destroyed…

My family had me placed in drug treatment programs both inpatient and outpatient, but they never seemed to work…

Then at the age of 37, 20 years later and after four times in prison, I was offered the chance to enter a program called Operation Launch…

Now that’s the name the prison uses but the actual name for this outreach program is Xtreme Soulutions…

Since joining this program I have learned a lot about myself, and now I can tell that for once in my life, I have purpose and now my life also has meaning…

And now I look forward to waking up every morning to face a new day and the first thing that I now say is Thank you God for giving me one more day…

I am also looking forward to getting out of prison because this time I know that I won’t be coming back because I now possess two things that I’ve always needed, but never had and these things are Jessus Christ and a support group…

I thank God daily for Xtreme Soulutions and the volunteers who donate their time to help people like me…

My name is Karry L. Grant and this is the testimony of my life…

May God Bless you and yours…
