How a barn that love built became the go-to place for meetings, picnics, campouts and joy

I drank and used drugs for more than 31 years. Throughout my active alcoholism, I experienced highs and lows, which ranged from driving around in limousines to living in a garage with rats. At the end, I had no desire to live anymore.
