If you’ve encountered Jesus, you have a story. You might not think it’s that spectacular, but it is. Every life change is a miracle. And today, Patrick from Grand Rapids, MI, a listener like you, tells his story—we hope to hear yours someday soon! Patrick started following Jesus at 17. But addiction and feelings of rejection dogged him into his 30’s. That’s when a miracle and Celebrate Recovery happened. Then Patrick shares about the pain that was underneath his addiction. Then, Perry used to be The Belly-Button Monster—what even is that? Next, how Jesus is using 89.3 to give Patrick the deep roots of faith that he’s always longed for. Finally, if you feel alone with your struggle, maybe too ashamed to share, it seems hopeless, Patrick has life-changing wisdom (seriously) to share with you.
