The most amazing thing about this program is living in a community of women that are my temporary family.
We share everything together. When one hurts, we all hurt. When one cries, we cry with her. When one rejoices – we all rejoice.
Tonight was a perfect example of the support and love that is given within our community. Someone got an email saying her son was hit by a car, and as she crumbled to the floor crying, there were 5 or 6 people at her side. As she screamed in agony, they stayed right there, patiently waiting to comfort her. There was someone by her side as she called home, and someone to help her back to her room. She didn’t have to go through any of this alone. I cried as I prayed for her and her son.
20 minutes later, as I walked in the common area, some ladies that are in my group were standing around smiling and crying and they said, “Did you hear?” And Crystal told me with tears in her eyes that her son Landon is coming back to his home after a long drawn out, nasty custody battle. We have been praying with her since September over this and she finally won! What a time to rejoice! The tears came again.
To sit in group when someone has a light bulb moment. Or to just listen when someone needs to talk. Or when breakthrough comes and this one that we’ve been waiting for, blossoms into the woman we’ve seen she had the potential to be.
This program really is a miracle worker. And we all know Who the credit is due to! Only God can change people the way this program changes us. He is always behind the scenes working on our behalf.
An I am blessed to be a part of this community. Full of love and support for each other.

P.S. Georgia’s son is fine. He had a bad bump on his head but he is recovering well.
