Out of the will to Live

Quotes from Teen Challenge Students:

I was blinded by my selfishness and focused on my negative circumstances
I was a broken man living in a horrible existence in a dark world I had created for myself At the age of 10 I had started smoking cigarettes and pot
I entered a destructive relationship and a lifestyle of drugs and violence
I attended the Teen Challenge Day Program while on the waiting list which provided a time of great comfort in an otherwise hopeless existence
I was nervous when I arrived at Grace Academy but I had a strange peace within me
I felt like a huge stone had been lifted off my life
Grace Academy provided me with a
safe haven so I could work through my pain and confusion, learn to ask for forgiveness and to forgive myself and begin to walk in hope with God my SHepherd
Once I was blind but now I see clearly
