Todd Sivers has helped me out in so many ways. Long ago, my world fell apart. My wife was ready to leave me, my kids were going to be taken away, and I was struggling with years of addiction. I thought of suicide on three different occasions and had the means to carry it out. I did not know what to do or where to turn. I knew God, but I did not have a relationship with Him. The night my world was crashing down, I spoke to Todd for an hour or so and really got to the heart of the matter. We didn't talk about the addiction I was dealing with, but about life issues. The addiction was not the main issue, there were other things that Todd saw immediately, the addiction was only the way I escaped.
I got into rehab for my addiction and Todd became my spiritual mentor. We talked every week for at least an hour and worked through the things I was learning during my walk with God and throughout my process in rehab. If it wasn't for the love shown and the time taken by Todd, I would not be in the place I am now. I'm a leader in a Christian Men's Mentoring Group, a leader in my home and the spiritual father I always wanted to be. I am not perfect, but I know I am forgiven!
I owe my life to Jesus, but He used Todd as a vessel to show His light and love. I can say that Todd was pivotal in my change, the direction my life has gone since then and the lives generationally behind me that will be effected for His purpose.
