“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.  The old has passed away; behold the new has come.” 2 Corinthians 5:17

I graduated Life Challenge in July of 2015.  Life Challenge laid the foundation for me to become who I am today.  Throughout that year, I was provided a safe and loving environment to solely focus on myself.  The structure and unwavering support allowed me to grow as a person.  The staff and volunteers gave me the tools and resources that completely changed my life.

I developed a personal relationship with Jesus that affected me to my core.  I had hope and I could finally see my self-worth.  Through our quiet time, prayer, and classes, Jesus taught me forgiveness, grace, and unconditional love.  These things have shaped how I live, think, and raise my family.  As the years have passed and I look back, I wouldn’t change my time at Life Challenge.  The fun we had and the memories we made will always be close to my heart.  I have made lifelong friendships and decided to raise my family in Sylva.  Lastly, I know a year seems like a long commitment – but what’s a year when freedom could last a lifetime?
