Woman Overcomes Bondage of Drugs and Crime With Help of Christian Inmates

A woman named Brandy has recently opened up about the life-changing transformation she went through in the most unexpected place. While in prison, Brandy found God and decided to fix her life for the sake of her daughter.

“I wanted to die,” said Brandy, as she spoke about her childhood and young adult life in an episode of “Restored with Missy Robertson.” The PureFlix.com series tackles the lives of women who were able to get back on their feet after living a life of crime, abuse or addiction. They are given a new lease in life and a sense of purpose by working in Laminin, a jewelry business started by “Duck Dynasty” star Missy Robertson.

Brandy is one of those women. She was able to reboot her life by working in Laminin after long stints in prison. In the video below, Brandy shares her harrowing story.

She revealed that as a young child, her mother left her and her baby brother on the doorstep of a drug dealer as collateral for drugs that her mother was unable to pay for. They were eventually adopted by their grandfather but when their mom came back for them eight years later, Brandy says that her life turned to hell.

At only 10 years old, Brandy learned how to smoke pot. Soon, her mom and her junkie friends were tying her up and shooting her arms up with drugs. With the drugs came lots of abuse. She said that she was repeatedly raped while tied up and drugged up as a child. She was also pimped out to help her mother and her companions secure money to feed their addiction.

At the age of 16, she went out on her own and had no choice but to live a life of crime. She ended up in jail for manufacturing methamphetamine. Once she got out, she found herself in an abusive relationship. She got pregnant and found herself in a battered women’s shelter and then back in prison just months after her daughter was born. This was when she found herself at rock bottom. It was also at this point that she found the women that would change her life for good.

She said that she started to act like a crazy person and fought with the guards. She ended up solitary confinement, but she could hear a group of women singing praises to God in a Christian barracks nearby.

Once she got out of solitary, the women welcomed her with open arms. “I walked in it was like everyone was holding their arms open. I’m like, ‘This is prison and I’ve never felt more free.’”

When she got out, she sought employment at Laminin. Robertson helped her get back on her feet. She now describes herself as “a blood-bought child of God.”
