Dr. Debra Peppers

Having travelled in all 50 states and 65 foreign countries, I have had more adventures and taken more risks than 95% of the world’s population. From scubing diving in Australia’s great-barriar reef to staying a week in the Okavango Delta in Africa where we had to sign a “attack by lion waiver,” my husband and I have chosen to take many somewhat dangerous risks. But unfortunately, I also took the worst risks of my lifetime as a teen-ager. Also unfortunately I would have fit right in with those teens today who seem to be risking and throwing away their lives. We all say, “If I had it to do over…” about things in our lives, and mine certainly would be not to live those horrible years drinking, toking, smoking and hurting my family deeply. But in the end, those negative risks were turned into posive results when I became a teacher f0or at-risk kids, and even help start an Alternative School. I recently tried to get a friend of mine to take a risk, step out in faith and allow his life to be better in the final chapters, than in the beginning. But sometimes it is harder for those who feel they can always save themselves, to not ask for help…and especially not to need a Savior.
