My name is Kacey Bell and I am a graduate of Adult & Teen Challenge, North Dakota. My life, both inside and out, has been radically changed by the saving power of Jesus Christ. God has delivered me from my addiction and I have been healed in so many areas of my life. I am no longer an addict like the world told me I was, I am a child of God. Our Father in heaven has busted through generational curses and my children have now been set free! God does not need Adult & Teen Challenge, North Dakota, but HE definitely uses this ministry to pick those up who are still so stuck in the fiery pits of sin and darkness. His light pushes all of that darkness out and overflows in abundance right back into His glorious kingdom! Victory is in the LORD and HE is the only way!
Since graduating, I’ve reunited with two of my kids, my relationship with my family is being mended,and I’m now working full-time at Adult & Teen Challenge, North Dakota. I have been honored to coordinate a substance abuse prevention program here in our state called Know The Truth ND (KTT). KTT is a program specifically developed to educate high school and middle school students on addictions,consequences of their choices and help them tackle their everyday struggles. Everybody has a story and when we are willing to share ours, it gives kids permission to share things in their own lives that they maybe struggling with. KTT exists to give kids a safe place to be heard, to get help, and to help others. This program is tailored to the needs of schools and addresses their most prevalent issues. We believe in the power of personal experience and work within our state to present students with accurate information about the dangers of alcohol and drug use. Through the mistakes we have made there is a lesson to learn! Adult & Teen Challenge,North Dakota is passionate about prevention because we don’t ever want to see anybody go down the same dark road and alleys of addiction that we did.
I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason and I can look back on my life and now see how, “God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (Romans 8:28)
