Finding Light in the Darkness

When we are in our groups, we have a great opportunity to actually listen to each other and not necessarily fix each other. We know that God will work in us and we are there as His tools to show each other love and compassion. We join with others each week so all can have a safe place to be heard and loved. No one has to be alone; we can always be there to listen to each other.

What to Do When You Fall

What I got for leaning on those things were a lot of hangovers, lost time and lost relationships. Everything was a struggle as I let temptation take control of my life. As those struggles got worse, I was facing a second divorce and watching my children who I loved more than anything in this world be hurt because of me. I knew I had to change.
