My life before the ranch: I had made bad choices and had been involved in many negative behaviors that not only had damaged my body but my soul had died as well. I fell hard into the shame-filled life. Two amazing women, my angels, helped me in my time of need to bring me to the ranch. My true desire is to change my old ways and to be a new creation in Christ. (2 Cor 5:17) I am the head today and not the tail (Deut 28:13). Today, I can honestly say I have found Christ Jesus, my Lord! My Lord and Savior has shown me I am worthy!  I do matter! God has changed my life by showing me I do have authority over my own body. I am still paying the price, but slowly I am on my way. I can be someone! One day, I will get back into school. I will keep moving forward, continue my journey, and have a successful life characterized by joy and peace. God’s given me the power He promised as long as I am obedient. I’m boldly on my way! –Jessica Sukane
