Drugs, Jail, and Jesus

With Chris & Wendy Brewer


In a powerful episode of the Jesus Loves Addicts podcast, Chris and Wendy Brewer, a couple from Satsuma, Alabama, share their harrowing journey through years of drug addiction, crime, and multiple incarcerations. Chris and Wendy open up about their early lives, both raised in good Christian homes, and how they diverged into a life of addiction and despair.

Chris’s story begins with drug use at a young age, leading to a life of dealing drugs and eventually cooking meth. He shares the painful memories of neglecting his children and the pivotal moment when he was severely burned in a meth lab explosion, which led to a profound realization of God’s mercy and a turning point in his life.

Wendy’s narrative complements Chris’s as she describes her later start with drug use, influenced by her relationships and the devastating impact on her family. She discusses the tragic loss of her second husband to a meth lab explosion and how Chris supported her through that difficult time.

The Brewers detail their ultimate path to recovery, marked by their respective stints in faith-based rehabilitation programs—Chris at the Mission of Hope and Wendy at the Home of Grace. They highlight the life-changing power of testimonies, their newfound purpose in ministry, and the ongoing challenges they face, including strained relationships with their children.

This episode is a testament to the transformative power of faith, the importance of support systems, and the relentless hope for redemption. Tune in to be inspired by Chris and Wendy’s story of overcoming addiction and finding a new life in Christ.
