Garrett Brannon

Women Practicing Yoga

My name is Garrett Brannon. I'm 42, and for the past 25 years, I've lived a life full of nothing but misery. I had great parents, that brought me up in church until I was old enough to decide not to go. 

I started using drugs around the age of 15, and that has been my life pretty much ever since. I went to prison for the first time at the age of 19 for possession of cocaine, got out when I was 21, and went right back to that lifestyle that put me in there to start with. If it didn't involve drugs, sex, lying, cheating, stealing, manipulating, fighting, basically anything NOT of God, I didn't want anything to do with it. I was miserable, angry, depressed, defeated, a failure as a man. I had no hope whatsoever. My mother died in 2016, and that's when I really hit rock bottom. I completely gave up on everything, and turned to methamphetamines to numb myself. I didn't want to face reality. The fact that I had chosen drugs over everything. My family, my kids, myself. I woke up each day for no reason other than to get high. I've been to prison 3 more times since my first trip in 1999, all for drugs. I've managed to lose everything I've ever had, due to my drug addiction. I got out of prison in May of 2021, and was headed right back down that dark, cold lonely road again and knew I had to do something before I wound up back in prison or worse, dead. I came to work for Tony and in just a couple of weeks of going to church at his house and on Sunday, God began to work. I surrendered my life to God, and things began to turn around for me. He's taken away the desires to get high. I now have a hope and peace like I've never known before. I've had to forgive myself for my past, and seek forgiveness of others as well. God has reconciled relationships with my family that I managed to ruin. He has taught me how to love. He has replaced that very hard heart I've had a long time, and given me a heart full of love, peace, and gratitude just to name a few. He's placed desires in my heart I would never imagine. A desire to live my life in a way that is pleasing to Him. Every single thing about me now is only because of God Almighty. Not because of anything I did. Doing things my way got me nothing but prison and misery. So God gets ALL the praise and glory for the man I am today!! Thank you Lord for saving me.
