Join us this week on Christian Devotions SPEAK UP! as Scott discusses kicking the drug addiction with author Jenny Reese Clark.
Jenny Reese Clark is a living testimony of what true faith in Jesus Christ can bring. As a multiple felon of various drug charges, including Unlawful Manufacturing of Methamphetamines, Jenny is no stranger to breaking the rules and suffering the consequences.
In April of 2010, Jenny’s life hit an all-time low as she turned her back on the home burning behind her. As a result of a chemical interaction, the clandestine laboratory that she brought secretly into her sister’s home, exploded. As she took off, shoeless, she ran as far as she could to escape the consequences. With her sister’s pet dead inside and her relationships destroyed through her own betrayals, Jenny woke up as a Jane Doe on a ventilator in an ICU twenty-four hours later—knowing there was no way to come back from such destruction.
It wasn’t until Jenny went to prison on a fifteen year sentence and lost every relationship, possession, and privilege she ever had that she began to honestly understand her true need and dependency upon the Lord. She returned to her roots and picked up her biblical studies, this time clinging to every word … knowing it meant her life or death.
In her book, Field of Influence, you will see this passion unfold. It’s an extremely insightful look into the forbidden realm of drug addiction.
