My name is Mike Nicholas, I grew up in a broken home, forced to live with many people, Grandparents, Uncle, Aunt, Church members, and whoever else they could pawn me off on.
I knew who God was at an early stage in my life, and was forced to go to church every time the doors were open. I didn't believe in Jesus because I could not touch him nor see him.
At an early age in my life, I was introduced to sex, drugs, and alcohol; You named it if it was bad for me I knew about it.
Married to my wife Staci at the age of 17 consumed still with drugs and alcohol. And keeping us far away from the church. Now we have three daughter's, Ashley, Brittany, and Loren, which I also kept from the church, except for rare occasions when I would go, or they attended with friends.
The alcohol consumed me. I still worked hard every day but drank from the time I got off work until bedtime, or I just would pass out somewhere, and they would leave me there.
I have done a ton of damage over 23 years of my marriage. I was never physically abusive To my wife or daughters, but they were always afraid I would hit them. I was verbally abusive to all of them. I would cuss them right out.
My wife kicked me out of the house in October 2012 for hurting her, for the last time. She was hurt and stunned, as were my kids and entire family for the terrible things I had done. I had ripped this family apart.
There I was all alone in that motel room trying to figure out what I had done. I opened the drawer to the nightstand, a saw a bible, opened it up and started reading. I stayed in that room for six days, Just God and me, all day, all night.
I ask God to forgive me and come into my heart and to save me from my alcohol addiction and take it completely out of my mind. I cried so much in that room calling up to him begging him, Lord Jesus please, please don't let me lose my family. If you do this for me, I will serve you for the rest of my life.
I haven't had a drink since October 17, 2012. No Help, Just me and God, (praise Jesus). John 14:14, "If you ask anything in my name, I will do it." (God said it, and I Believed it).
After this miracle from God, I returned home. With forgiveness from my family, I told them I was a changed man and was going to live my life for Jesus.
We started a church here at the "Life Center" the last week of December 2012. And now, all 3 of my daughters have received Jesus as their Lord and Savior, all 3 Baptized and living by the Words of God, Praise Jesus!
