Julie: Almost five years ago I was blessed to encounter a program called Celebrate Recovery. Little did I know at the time that CR would be the tool I would use to turn my complete mess into a message for his Glory.
Celebrate Recovery is a 12 step, biblically-based program that will help you overcome whatever hurt, habit, or hang-up is interrupting your peace and serenity if you want it to. Things don’t get fixed with magic; you have to have the desire to help them along.
I will gladly tell you that I am one of “those people”. Admitting that is what lead to me addressing my hang-up and obtaining the peace I have today. I believe in this program with my whole heart and I want to share it with as many people as God will send through our doors. I still struggle with life on life’s terms, but even my worst day now is better than my best day was then!
Ellen: I have been married since 1989 to my husband Glenn and we have 2 daughters, Rachel and Anna. I gave my heart to Jesus at the age of 12 but it was years before I really understood what that meant. I am active in my church through VBS and a nursery worker. I know that Jesus has a plan for our daily lives and we must tune into HIM to know what that is.
Jeremiah 29:11 New International Version (NIV) 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. Come and give Celebrate Recovery a chance. It will change your life!
