Meet Taylor. She was a product of her abusive drug addict mother. By 9th grade her parents had divorced, and her mother was no longer part of her life. She started smoking weed and drinking alcohol. In spite of all this she still managed to graduate high school with honors and a Vicodin addiction. Out of High school she was accepted into Michigan State University and that’s where she says, “I started to really party and things began to get out of control; I tried any and every drug.” Her addiction grew rapid and by her junior year she withdrew from MSU and entered rehab. The next year of her life was consumed with rehab after rehab; none of them worked. Her addiction actually got worse progressing from pain pills to heroin. Taylor eventually overdosed and was pronounced clinically dead having to be revived in the ambulance. “I felt so hopeless because I felt like nothing could help me, and that I was going to go to prison or die.” That is when she came to Project Hope, “I got saved, baptized and filled with the Holy Spirit since being here. I also led my dad in the sinner’s prayer over the phone and a few weeks later he got filled with the Holy Spirit too! God has brought such restoration to my family, I am so grateful to Project Hope.”

The scripture she stands on is Proverbs 31:25, “She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.”
