Jim Johns is Back on Track

Holly Waldenmyer Tue, Oct 9th, 2018

Jim Johns exudes a healthy glow and an air of self confidence, as he meets your gaze directly with startlingly intense blue eyes.  It is difficult to visualize the addict he describes, that person who entered the Pathway to Wellness program December of 2014.

I struggle to envision the torment drugs wreaked upon this individual, and applaud the courage he mustered to overcome his addiction.  He fought a valiant fight, but credits his faith and belief that God would help him endure and provide the strength to combat the compulsion, defeat the ever-present peer pressure, and ultimately assist, to win the first battle.  Life, and the business of, never cease to offer obstacles along it's path, but Jim has the necessary tools in reserve to achieve success.  He has learned to negate any stirring temptation  which could result in a return to drug usage.
