Honesty & Recovery

If a person wants to walk in true recovery they need to have a goal of being an honest person which is just the opposite of how many addicts have lived. For most addicts they have lived a life of lies and deceptions. However, with God's grace an ex-addict can be a person of integrity.

Brandy & DanielleBrandy & Danielle Young
Forgiveness and Recovery

Both Brandy & Danielle have struggled with eating disorders and cutting. Danielle also struggled with drugs. On this broadcast both of them talked about the concept of forgiveness and how it relates to recovery from any addiction. They will be sharing their own struggles with forgiving others and how they have been able to forgive those who have hurt them. Forgiveness is one of the principles taught at an Encounter with God Seminar.

A person struggling with an addiction almost for sure has unforgiveness. Either towards others, themselves, or maybe even God.The good news is that it is possible to be set free from having grudges, bitterness, and unforgiveness.

Tia MatthewsWe interviewed Tia Matthews. Tia has been clean & sober for two years after being an alcoholic and drug addict for many years. Once Tia made a true decision to no longer use alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, or go to men for love and acceptance, her life dramatically changed. This does not mean it has not been hard for her at times. As a single mother of two children life can be very challenging. However, there are principles that Tia has learned that have given her the strength to walk in victory over her addictions.Some of the principles that she has applied have come from an Encounter with God Seminar.

Gideon-JoshThe Influence of Fathers and Choices
We interviewed Gideon and Josh. Gideon, 79, was sexually abused as a young boy. Because of the influence of a great father Gideon did not go into addictions to deal with his emotional wounds. He did not become an abuser himself. He also has been a godly father who has children that are living for God. He made a choice to live above his circumstances.

Josh story is much different. Josh was raised by a father who was an alcoholic. Josh started drinking at 9 years old. He later started experimenting with drugs and became a full blown alcoholic. He went to live with his mother and they became drinking buddies. If it was not for an intervention Josh would still be going down a road of destruction. He had to make a choice to live beyond the influence of a very dysfunctional father. Josh shares what he has been learning and applying in his life to walk as an overcomer. Next week we will be talking with Josh again and sharing more of his recovery and how an Encounter Weekend can help someone like Josh. Josh and his mother Donna are featured on A & E Intervention TV show on Monday, June 28 at 9pm Pacific time.
