Bring Restoration to your Church
Jesus Christ healed the sick, fed the hungry, and preached the gospel. How does your church measure up? How does your church support those who suffer from addictions and mental health issues? Do your church leaders feel equiped to reach out and help?
5 Truths from Christians who Suffer from Addictions:

- I carry an immense amount of shame due to Complex Trauma, making me hypersensitive to guilt and feelings of judgements. I wish I didn't feel this way.
- As I work through my issues, I ask for support, patience and love. I'm a little screwed up but I'm going to be ok.
