* A Healing Journey To Personal Growth & Renewal *
As a means to cope with our own personal traumas or the difficulties of life, many of us find ourselves using unhealthy coping mechanisms that adversely affect our health & can disrupt relationships. We often know no other way and are simply doing our best to survive in life.
Truth is, we all struggle to live life on life's terms. We are not alone!
As we uncover and step into our personal truth and openly share our struggles,
we empower each other through inspiration, supporting each other as we learn and grow together.
By living in grace, we can embrace self-love, self-compassion, and self-acceptance, seeing ourselves as our Creator sees us, 'beautifully broken' for Him.
As we surrender to our brokenness, we can release the strife of 'surviving' ...
we can embrace our power to THRIVE!
How can this program inspire healing in your life?
Here's my personal experience of the healing power of God WITHIN us!

“We admitted we were powerless over our problems (fill in the _______ from ‘surviving’ list!), that our [lives] / [relationships] / [physical challenges] had become unmanageable.”
The world thinks intimacy occurs in the dark but God says it happens in the light. Darkness is used to hide our hurts, faults, fears, failures, and flaws. But in the light we bring them all out into the open and admit who we really are.
“Confess your [life struggles] to each other and pray for each other so you can live together whole and healed.” ~ James 5:16a
In our coming together, we honor the group by releasing any judgement of personalities, preferences, interpretations, styles, or methods. We will concentrate on loving each other and fulfilling God’s purposes.
“Let there be real harmony … I plead with you to be of one mind, united in thought and purpose.” ~

In our journey through the 12 steps, a spiritual awakening forms the purpose of healing our relationships with self, others, and God. To be free of addictions and unhealthy ways of coping with difficult life circumstances, we must be willing to go to any lengths to achieve this spiritual healing.

God grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
As it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make things right
If I surrender to His Will;
So that I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever and ever in the next.
