Who I am.

HEY! My name is Angie Holladay…

For ten years, I lived on and off the streets. All the while, I was drinking and using crazy amounts of drugs to escape the hell of my every day life. Due to the street life, circumstances and bad choices, I landed in jail for three years… at the age of sixteen years old.

I’m twenty-eight years old now and, I began this blog as a memoir, for the same reason’s most of us begin a memoir. To cope. To give it away. To have something tangible.

I write about my past. I write about Jesus. I write just to empty my mind of it’s rantings. I write, sometimes, just to SURVIVE.

I’m human just like you, and the love of God is the only thing that saved my life.
