Sandra shares her Experience, Strength and Hope with captivating storytelling of tragic experiences turned into serenity, hope and a beautiful life. By 16 years old, Sandra had lost her father, sister and mother, and without conscious awareness, carried the blame of their deaths on her shoulders as she entered life as an orphan. And it was alcohol that removed that heavy guilt. A “savage time” she describes it.
After what Sandra describes as a hallucination, surrender, and divine intervention, she finds her way to the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous, at only 28 years old—she hasn’t had a drink since.
“Alcohol wasn’t going to let me go . . . my world became very small . . . there wasn’t an ounce of joy in my life.”
“This program works in all circumstances, no matter what comes or goes, you don’t have to pick up.”
