Christine Collier, RN, gave her testimony this past Monday evening at the June Slidell Aglow Lighthouse meeting.

Collier, after being saved in 1999, was instrumental in beginning drug and alcohol recovery life groups “New Life Now” at Resurrection Life Ministry. She has now written curriculum for the program and served as director for the last nine years. She has been part of a ministry program in our local correctional facility for the last three years under Sheriff David Allison. She has also been published in books, newspapers and magazines; and recently received an Honorable Mention at the Southern Christian Writers Conference for her poem published in “Bubble Bath Moments.” 

Collier says, “Approximately 60 people were in attendance and they heard my ‘Old Life Testimony’ of how my brokeness led me to serving the Lord and what was meant to kill me is now my purpose.”

Aglow President Monique Sigmon says, “Christine was a very transparent speaker, who gave a wonderful testimony of how Jesus changed her life. We had about 60 people come to the meeting and they really enjoyed it. She was very encouraging to those struggling with addictions and ministered in prayer afterwards.”

Collier continues, “Addiction has been a family struggle and we run a support group for the families of those that attend “New Life Now,” at the same time the recovery group runs. This way everyone can get the help and ministry that they need. This battle effects the entire family.

“Everyone that knows my family knows that my daughter has had a terrible battle with drugs; but with God’s help and the program at Jacob’s Well Ministries, she has gone on to run Lighthouse Women’s Transitional Home in Henleyfield. It is the second step in the recovery process after the women go through the Jacob’s Well program. She now has Monogram Me Lighthouse Thrift Store in Bay St. Louis which they operate to support the home in Henleyfield.”

Collier says, “I am really enjoying this flow of new adventures and branching out where the Lord guides me. I believe if each person would allow God to help them use the gifts and talents that He has placed in them specifically, our communities would be a much better place.”
