Attending Life Challenge was one of the most challenging yet most rewarding and beautiful experiences I’ve ever been part of.  I knew of Jesus before, but I didn’t really know Jesus until I took part in this program.

I graduated from Life Challenge almost 8 years ago.  Leaving the program was scary and exciting all at the same time.  Through the year I spent with them, I not only got sober, but I learned about Jesus and was able to really form a relationship with Him.  I bonded with others in Christ, found structure and purpose in my days.  Through the amazing partnerships with local churches, others in Christ, Bible studies and digging deep into the Word, Life Challenge introduced me to the amazing works of God, helped me understand the sacrifice that was made for me and showed me how worthy I am.  Through Jesus, I found purpose again. The trials and tribulations Jesus experienced, his mercy and grace, his forgiveness and unconditional love are the foundation of what has helped me stay sober.


Life Challenge helped me have self-awareness to really see my actions, my words and see the world through Jesus’ lens.  My learnings through this program of Jesus, his love and forgiveness, the power of faith and prayer, have all helped me get to where I am today.  Also, the importance of having the right relationships with others in Christ to continuously be fed.  Through his grace, I am healed and still sober today.  My life is more than I ever thought it would be.  He has provided for me and my family and blessed me more than I could ever imagine – things I never thought I’d have.  On the hard days, and there are hard days, I lean on Jesus, prayer and His word to give me strength.

“But whatever I am now, it is all because God poured out
His special special favor on me…(NLT)”
(1 Cor. 15:10)
