Welcome and greetings to all my brothers and sisters in recovery.
My name is Jon B. Korn. I’m an alcoholic and I’m a drug addict. I’m also a human being, a cancer survivor, a child of divorced parents and the divorced parent of a child. I have endured the demons of mental illness and have know periods of depression so dark that I wondered if I would ever escape.
In 2015 I found myself in a state of depression I had never known. Still free from alcohol and drugs since the beginning of my journey in 1996, my thoughts ran from stuffing myself with sweets, to thinking about that first drink, to the consideration of suicide.
In a last ditch effort to get through yet another day, I found myself seeking inspiration in the New Testament of the Holy Bible each night before closing my eyes. As days slowly turned into weeks I began to feel a more content sense of being, and in turn, I came to embrace a feeling of inspiration as I had never felt before.
It was as if I had been blessed with a new perspective of the teachings in the New Testament and how these teachings directly relate to my journey in recovery. So inspired, over 100 messages from A Sober Christian were penned, each once motivated by love and a desire to share the grace of hope in recovery that I have received.
For you are a beacon of light to those still in darkness.
