Drunk driving with her children is where her story to recovery and forgiveness began. Amy Baumgardner is a wife, a mother & a recovering alcoholic who is sharing her very personal story with us at KirstyTV.
Four years ago, Amy made the decision to drive drunk with her 5 and 7 year old children. She had a car accident which threatened the life of her youngest child, leaving her in critical condition. The accident was a huge turning point for her, eventually leading her to meet Oprah Winfrey and Iyanla Vanzant on the Oprah Lifeclass show. She’s here with us on Kirsty TV because she knows that other mother’s are out there who are dealing with alcoholism, healing and forgiveness.
I asked her how it began & she shared “before I knew it and before I could even pin point that it was happening, I was drinking all day, everyday. I was having a breakdown, emotionally and mentally.” that was when “The severity of my actions really hit home.”
