When Mary joined the group, she was processing complicated family dynamics and her wavering relationship with God. Throughout the process she began to release the grip of control that she had on her family. She started experiencing peace beyond her circumstances. Much of the shame Mary felt lifted when she heard another woman in the group who was experiencing similar feelings. She became interested in reigniting her faith.
Recently a colleague approached Elin, sharing that Mary is a completely different person now. Her demeanor, her outlook, and her life have improved through this healing process. Mary now leads a group as a volunteer facilitator, sharing the hope with others that she gained through that process.
This is but one of many stories of staff and members breaking free from dysfunctional patterns, letting go of control, admitting powerlessness over addictions, processing emotions for the first time, reconciling relationships, facing their problems head on.
Through Journey to Freedom they have the opportunity to be a safe space in the community. One that offers hope and healing to all.
