Well another year has come and gone.
   This year has been most interesting by far. I have been stretched in ways I would not have ever dreamed possible.
I started attending church again about 6 years ago...... Slowly, tip toeing through all the dogma and trying to find my confort zone in God's house.............Well after attending many "small groups" "womens groups" "couples groups"......I ended up in a group last year called REALITY REVEALED................with very "seasoned christian women of various ages".......We delt with Trama,Addictions,Porn,Divorce,Aborotions,...........on and on.
Searching through scripture to SPEAK to these issues and find Healing, acceptance,forgiveness and Victory in His Word
Wow..............is all I can say. What an experience that was. There were days when I.................. with all my clean time was so afraid to face the truth and wanted to RUN LIKE HELL..............I stayed.And by staying I recieved a level of healing I never thought was possible.
For the last several months I have been assisting in another Reality Revealed Group of about 6 women............and so the Healing begins. We have 2 women getting clean from drugs............That has been the most rewarding for me. I have shared my story with these ladies.............leaving out nothing.
   So I guess it is safe to say I have found my calling...........
The book Reality Revealed is a scripture based tool and you can get it on line or your local book store can order it. It also comes with a Life Map...........very much like a 4th step
My church is C-3 Church-Clayton,North Carolina. We live streem on Sundays @ 9:15 and 11:15...........and the First Wednesday of each month @ 7:00............Come check us out. We are a contemporay church.......seeking to reach the Hurting.We do a lot of outreach in our community..................A very large youth ministry
   Well thats about it..............All is healthy. We have a new Harley. Looking at homes in the Clayton aera............Life is good.I went to a NA meeting last night and there is a home down there for Mothers and their Children in Recovery.......about 8 were at the meeting............What a blessing to be used as an instrument of God's will to carry the message of Hope to these ladies....................Blessings to all...............Debra

Congratulations, Firebird.  Sounds like you are an official warrior for the Word.

That binta chick really gets around!  Bummer she had to pick your celebratory post to do her troll thing.  margypops told me she is a troll... whatever that is... "trolling for business" is my guess.  

Nevertheless, this is F-V nearby saying "Hi!"  God Bless.
