From Pain to Purpose

With Jennifer Gaspard


Jennifer shares her powerful story of overcoming addiction to opiates. Jennifer’s journey began at the young age of 14 when she was introduced to prescription pain medication following knee surgery. Over the years, she underwent 23 knee surgeries, leading to a deep dependency on narcotics.

Jennifer opens up about her struggles, including multiple stints in treatment centers and how she grappled with the medical system that continually prescribed her pain medication. She also shares the turning point in her life—her surrender to Christ and how faith played a crucial role in her recovery.

Throughout the episode, Jennifer emphasizes the importance of a supportive community, accountability, and the need to break away from familiar but harmful environments. She discusses her current role as an intake counselor and grad dorm supervisor at the Home of Grace in Alabama, where she now helps others navigate their own paths to recovery.

Join us as Jennifer’s story sheds light on the often-overlooked issue of medically induced addiction and the transformative power of faith and community in the journey to recovery. This episode is a must-listen for anyone struggling with addiction or supporting a loved one through it.
