LIFE Anonymous discussion group can help you overcome battles

You may not have a substance abuse issue, but is there something – or maybe even more than one thing – with which you constantly battle? Is there something to help you overcome? You can pay a lot of money for someone to listen to you and then to talk to you. You can choose to suffer alone or you can opt to connect with a small group of people who are on the same journey called LIFE and it's free.

Many of us have character and conduct flaws that challenge us, to say the least. They raise their ugly heads at the most inopportune times. Just when we least expect it and we find ourselves in a painful situation with our children, our parents, our friends, people at work and we just wish we could stop! Like the challenge to stop smoking, these behaviors are tough to change. 

But there is hope! 

Ann and Melissa have ventured through a 12-step program that has been a real encouragement in their lives. Today they are facilitating a discussion group that meets every second and fourth Monday at 7 p.m. at CrossPointe Community, 1800 Columbia Road in Westlake. The purpose of the group is to provide support and encouragement to those who desire to overcome those things in life that seek to defeat us... like anger and resentment which seem to overpower us.

We hope you will accept this invitation to join this 12-step Christ-centered recovery group. When you come, there is no pressure to talk. You are encouraged to come and simply listen. Life Is For Everyone... real, healthy, peace-filled, abundant life!
