When my life hit bottom almost a decade ago, I felt lost, confused, and wondered why I was even breathing. But at my lowest point was where I discovered I was a songwriter! I joined a local 12-step recovery group, and began writing "recovery", restoration, and healing music, as I worked the 12 steps, and worked through my "stuff".
