Rev. Wisdom Williams founded Taking It Back ministries, a church group that helps people overcome personal issues.
The group held its second annual men and women's conference, this weekend, featuring speakers all the way from Milwaukee.
Rev. Williams said the event was about restoring and encouraging others, and she's glad to share her story.
"I was a drug addict, at my lowest, my absolute lowest. I had lost my children and I was on my way to prison. A woman of God took the time to today what I am doing for others; to say all is not lost. God still hears the cries of His people," said Rev. Williams.
She also wrote a book about her experiences.
