PETE’S STORY

Hi, my name is Pete.  I’m a grateful believer in Jesus Christ, in recovery from drugs, alcohol, codependency and an adult survivor of physical, mental and sexual abuse. I am an adult survivor of a very dysfunctional family of six siblings. I was lost in the pain of my childhood abuse for 60 years, masking it with drugs, alcohol, anger, abuse, financial success and sex. Stuffing it down, just beating myself up, and allowing evil, living in fear, insecurities and pride for 28 years to control my life.

Then in 1978, I found my savior Jesus, thinking all my sins were forgiven with a great life for the next five years. Yes, I’m going to heaven, but still I did not deal with my inner hurts, hang-ups and habits. Then tragedy struck once again in my life: How could this be? I’m in Christ!  I continued to seek the Lord but I was still lost in my pain. So once again I began using wealth, drugs, alcohol and sexual affairs to mask the pain. The result? Losing my wife and family, and that took me down a road to disaster.

In 2006 I was called by the Holy Spirit back to the church, yet still in pain, so I tried secular recovery groups to no avail. Married my fourth wife, and putting pressure on myself to build my business, I began abusing pain medication again, STILL COVERING UP. With an ultimatum — “get help or face another divorce” — I cried out to the Lord and He led me to Celebrate Recovery, a Christ-centered recovery group. Jesus, through Celebrate Recovery, guiding me through the eight principles.  Three years later, I now experience true peace and freedom! He healed me from the inside out.

It may not be drugs or alcohol that challenges your life. Is it pornography, anger, sex addition, eating disorder, sexual abuse, codependency, gambling?  Whatever your issue… Come and join us in a safe place to seek out help from those who understand and have received a new peace and freedom through Jesus and Celebrate Recovery.
