The Hero's Journey: From Recovery to Redemption

Where are you now?

Many people in recovery from addiction or trauma make the mistake of thinking the goal is their sobriety or freedom from trauma reactions. But it’s not. God has more for you.

Your recovery is just the beginning of a Hero’s Journey that can lead you to living a joyous redemptive life spent helping others. How? By letting God use your story for His glory.

But first, you’ll need a roadmap that’ll help you move through the 4 Stages from Hopeful to Heroic on your road to redemption. It all begins with this question…

Where are you now? And what’s your goal? To get help, or to get help so you can serve God by helping others? Join us.

“I came to you for help. Now I'm healthy and mentoring others.”
