Connie's Story


Growing up, OEW team member Connie knew all the “church answers” to life’s questions. While in high school, she thought getting good grades, having friends and partying would give her love and help her to be understood. She drank and did the drugs everyone else was doing. But, secretly, she was cutting and she quickly became overwhelmed trying to maintain three identities. This only led her to darkness, depression, loneliness and feeling nothing but not good enough. Connie tells us how she was able to find hope, worth, purpose and unconditional love in Jesus.
