“To proclaim the year of the Lords favor, and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion- to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.”    Isaiah 61:2-3

Dianne Sundby

My name is Dianne. I came to Hannah’s House in 2011 completely broken and desperately wanting to be loved. This is my story of what God has done in my life through the Teen Challenge program, and what He is continuing to do after…

Tandra

Hello, my name is Tandra. Before I came to Teen Challenge my life was a complete disaster. I started using meth when I was 17 years old, right after my son Keiler was born. Once I started I just couldn’t stop. I loved this drug and what it did for me. It gave me confidence that I never had before. It made me lose weight fast when I have struggled with weight my entire life. It gave me energy to keep up with my son and then some. I was invincible. I could do anything and everything! But…it also destroyed mine and my family’s life.

Savannah

Hello my name is Savannah, I am 22 years old and the oldest of three. From the beginning I was raised in a broken home; my father was sent to prison when I was only four years old. Before I was five years old I had been sexually abused and my whole perception of life was altered. Growing up I was teased and put down—I felt as though I was never good enough. By the age of 17 I found myself entering into heavy drug abuse.

SAVE THE DATE

The following Hannah's House fundraisers are on the agenda for 2013...

Becky & Her Daughter

My name is Becky and I was born in Hermiston Oregon as a result of an affair. I’ve never felt like I was wanted. I felt like as I entered the world I destroyed my dad’s family. So my whole life I’ve strived for meaning, belonging and love. All I’ve wanted is to be accepted.

Brandi & Wyatt

My name is Brandi.  I was addicted to methamphetamines and heroin for a very long time. I was prescribed Ritalin and Xanax back in college that I took for twelve years. My son was removed from my care three months after he was born because of my drug addiction. The life I was living was nothing short of a nightmare. I was so depressed for so many years because of choices I made along the way. Finding the will to get out of bed, at times, seemed almost impossible. The thought of it would literally torment me.

Cadence and Mom

Cadence (my three-year old daughter) and I were outside looking at the sunset and talking about the crickets. Cadence started crying and said, “Mom, I want Jesus to come down from Heaven.” I answered “He will someday.”  She said “I want him to protect me from the wolves.”  I replied “Honey, he will.”

Before I came to Teen Challenge, I felt trapped in the pit of addiction that I did not think was possible to get out of. I came to the point where I did not know how to function sober. I even chose drugs over my own beautiful daughter. I was stuck in Satan’s lies and deception for far too long.

Before coming to Teen Challenge I was completely out of control. I had lost my son to the state due to a long drug addiction. I was a broken woman, completely in bondage, full of guilt and shame. I didn’t think I could be loved by anyone–least of all the Creator of our universe.
