Misty Loman's Mugshot progression is tragic but her story shows, ‘prayers really work.' Her story proves it’s never too late to turn to Jesus!
We all have that loved one, that one drug-addicted person in our lives whom we are begging God to save. For some, addiction was the result of a poor choice. For others, it's to escape the pain. And still, for others, it's because they feel so utterly lost.
For Misty Loman, it was all of these things.
Misty Loman Mugshots Only Tell Part Of The Story
Misty turned to drugs because she wanted to escape the consequences of her poor choices coupled with the demons chasing her. She also sought to escape a health condition causing her own body to attack itself. While drugs only intensified the deterioration shown in her mugshot progression, the horrible disease from which Misty Loman suffers is to blame for the drastic changes in her appearance, too.
Misty was in a place so dark and so deep, that she didn't think there was any way out.
After tragically losing a son at childbirth, Misty didn't think she could take any more pain. She tried to be a good mom to her two older sons, but then she tragically lost a set of twins too.
As if anyone else couldn't have withstood more grief, she also lost her home, her car, and her health. She had also been diagnosed with cancer, Lupus disease, and Scleroderma, a disease characterized by the hardening of the skin.
"I was broken, mind, body, and spirit. I have seen no way out. I didn't want to wake up. I lost everything. I was homeless. I had lost my kids. I literally lost my mind. And I didn't really think I'd ever snap back," Misty said. "I had no intentions. I was gonna get high until I died. Doctors didn't give me much time to live and I just spiraled out of control. I saw no way out. I was so depressed. I didn't want to wake up. I lost all my hair, it got really bad. I lost my kids. I was homeless. I was at rock bottom."
Prayer Changes Everything
While she kept turning to drugs, her family turned to Jesus. They prayed and didn't lose faith even though Misty had been jailed fourteen times and went to prison. Those who know the ups and downs of drug addiction know the pain, fear, and disappointment when someone you love loses their sobriety and you sometimes wonder if they will ever break free.
But Misty's story is a reminder to never lose hope because one day, sobriety will become everything when your loved one partners with God to fight their addiction battle.
Misty's life wasn't going to end in chains. God had a different story. Captured in mug shots that went viral, you can see the prayers of her loved ones working from the inside out.

Misty is a modern-day Job because God has given back her life tenfold. She has a home, she has her children, and she walks hand in hand with the God who set her free.
