Justin B

Kevin was born on a farm in the Midwest, born into a family of co – dependent’s.  Went on to be a military pilot and a successful business man.  Married a fixer upper that sent him and his family into a tail spin.  In that tail spin and suffering, Kevin found the true meaning of humility and to learn that acceptance is the answer to all of his problems today because absolutely nothing happens in God's world by mistake. He needed to concentrate not so much on what needed to be changed in his family as much as what needed to be changed in him and his attitude.  Angie is a sexaholic with nearly 6 years in recovery.  Married 33 years.  She loves and lives the steps and loves to help others.
