“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?
