Hi Latonia here,I just want to tell you a little about myself so that we can get acquainted as you navigate around my website .I am a 45 year old mother of four children,I have been a certified nursing assistant for 15 years,I really love doing this because I love helping people and providing them with excellent care, I am currently pursuing my bachelor degree in psychology at Ashford University,my main focus of study is on our youth and preventing them from traveling down the same path as I once have,and that is being addicted to drug and alcohol at a young age.

latonia turnerI started experimenting with (beer) alcohol when I was 14 which was the worst thing I could have done. I was always a shy person, I felt along and left out,But as soon as I took my first drink seem like I could get along with people better,felt like I was a part of the in crowed, But I did not know what the enemy had for me on down the road that was just a start to make it seem as if the only way I could be accepted and be myself I had to get high (boy was I wrong,trick of Satan)It started out only on the weekend drinking beer then I graduated to liquor which gave me a quicker high .Then I started using marijuana to get an even more high I started skipping school just to get high by the time I was 16 I dropped out of school before long this became my life ,my goal was to get high. Hey all of my friends was getting high and at the time I thought it was the cool thing to do.

There Is Hope

I was addicted to marijuana and alcohol for 16 years, In that time I lost the respect of my children, lot of material possessions, before I realized I was walking in destruction , a lot of you may not believe that something that start out so innocent and feel so good can cause you headache and pain down the road.I am a believer I have seen things crumble around me because of my addiction, Things that only God could put back in place for me , and He did once I learned how to forgive and let all my pass ,all my hurts and frustration go .I realized how much he loved and cared for me and how much he really wanted to be my friend and father ,he stepped in and filled the void such as loneliness,hurt,and rejection. Now my life has changed for the better I no longer depend on a false substitute , I can go boldly to the throne of Grace,I go to the real source of power that can deliver me and keep me from the trick of the enemy.

My Mission and Purpose

My mission now is to help parents see the signs and symptoms of alcohol and drug addiction and catch it before it become a big problem and to reach out to teenagers to make them aware of the problems of being addicted to drugs and alcohol can cause for them in the long run and that there is hope.
