My name is Jeanine Sanchez. I’m 25 yrs old and I have two daughter’s ages 3 and 1. I was born and raised in the city of Pico Rivera. I grew up in a very sheltered and loving home with both parents. And never knew what was out there in the real world. Until I turned eighteen then I became wild and wanted to experience new things. It was then that I started to use drugs and became addicted to Meth. Shortly after that I met my husband who also was addicted to drugs and was a drug dealer. Our life became worse and a year ago I lost my husband to life in prison. After he left I felt as if there was no hope my drug addiction led me to using more drugs and selling them to support my habit. I wound up losing everything and became homeless. I became tired and came to an end. I told myself that I couldn’t live like this any longer and I was terrified of losing my children. My brother asked me if I was ready to surrender and start over again. I replied yes! So I entered my self into a program named Rainbow Family Ministry a home for women and children. It was there that I first opened the Bible and began a relationship with the Lord, and it was there that I found hope and a new beginning for my children and myself.
Now I will be attending Everest College to complete my studies in Massage Therapy. I know that as long as I am walking with the Lord I will continue to be successful. I give all glory and honor to the Lord, and give thanks to Rainbow Family for opening up their doors and hearts to my children and me, and giving me the guidance and support that I needed to get my life back.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of god.
