I Feel So Ashamed

As a teenager, I didn’t invite new friends to my house; I’d meet them other places. I was ashamed. And I’m not alone! Many of us who ended up with addictions grew up with the stronghold of addiction in our homes. Was this true for you?

Why Can't I Quit?

What you are doing isn’t working or you’d be free already. Seek Jesus. Seek professional help. Join a recovery group and work through the process with Christ by your side. Whatever program or action God leads you to take part in will be the right step. Trust God. “For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11. We all NEED that!

My Eating is Out of Control

"We eat for a reason, a problem or a wound and only God has the answers to each of those. Bringing things to Him and listening to what He has to say has brought a tremendous amount of healing into my life. Sometimes the answer surprises me. I think I’m struggling with one thing and He shows me that it is something totally different."
