Tricia had decided to die.

Living in constant fear of her violent father, believing his constant yelling that she was worthless. Eventually bleeding out her pain through cutting wasn’t enough.

So another beautiful Indian girl was planning her suicide. Someone invited her to an On Eagles’ Wings® event in a nearby reservation village. There she heard a Hope Story – shared by an abused young woman who came to Jesus the night she had the gun to her head.

      I grew up in a Christian home with both my mom and dad. But with that, I was still feeling lost, confused and scared.

      My dad was an alcoholic and abusive father. It was really hard, because my siblings and I all experienced that abuse.

      My family turned toward drugs, alcohol and gang related stuff. That took its toll on me. My Mom was depressed so she was never there for me.
