Matt and Ronda C. - New Purpose
Matt and Ronda C. graduated from the first Part 3 of 2015. For them each power-packed weekend has been an incredible blessing, full of healing and growth.
From Matt - “After several years of being in recovery from a life that involved isolation, sexual compulsive behavior, and running from my emotions and difficult situations, I had found much joy and peace. However, running under the surface were doubt, fear, and a lack of understanding regarding the direction for my life. My career was going nowhere and my spiritual life was inconsistent. This malaise left me rudderless. I felt like I had hit a wall that left me nearly unable to function at work - and gave me a desire to isolate more than I had in years.
I didn’t know what to expect from The Road. I must say that it was the boost that I needed to get past this deep rut in my life. The Road trainers and exercises enabled me to work past emotional barriers and mere intellectual knowledge of spiritual health into a freedom to move forward with purpose. I have confidence, I am not fearful, I am not held back by the old hurts from my past, and I have a new motivation to move forward and do God’s will.”
From Ronda - “I have been in recovery for codependency for over twenty years, so when I first heard about The Road, I was interested but figured it was just another life recovery program. There were still areas of my life with which I struggled. This past year had been particularly difficult as Matt and I were going through some financial hardship.
I was drawn to The Road’s website and after reading the testimonials I thought this might be something different. I felt like God was leading us to The Road, so I told my husband I would like to go and he said to sign us up. I showed up with a lot of hope, but no expectations. Though I didn’t realize it, I had been living my life in the shadow of others, afraid of what others thought of me, and terrified of the future. The Road helped me step out of my comfort zone and really begin to live my life with confidence. I’ve grown much closer to God and feel I now know the purpose that He has for my life. The Road has given me the tools to help live out that purpose. Best of all, I have new friends and a whole new family!”
We would like all to know that The Road can and does change lives. We went into the experience hopeful but directionless and depressed. We came out with a new found confidence that God is at work in our lives. We would like to say thank you to The Road for the manner in which it honors our military. We are both US Navy veterans and were truly blessed by the gift of The Road experience. Thank you, and may God continue to bless this valuable ministry. Matt & Ronda
Janell F.- Internal Fireworks!
“I felt dead on the inside when I started Part 1.
Today I feel like I have internal fireworks causing all kinds of excitement and life.”
Eric & Shanessa C. - Forgiveness
“The Road helped me as an individual to assess my triggers, needs, and desires. Suffering from PTSD I needed a way to process these feelings and not brush them under the rug. The Road helped pull those out, identify what were the triggers, and process those. It really came down to the crutch of the whole matter: forgiveness. It exposed the areas of my life still haunting me and helped me to forgive myself and others.
My belief is that The Road would benefit every veteran whether serving in combat or not. It will help them to process the decisions they have had to make. The Road gave me a safe and trusting environment to decompress and let my walls down.
I have been married for twenty-three years and attended over twenty marriage seminars; by far, The Road has made the biggest impact for my wife and I by giving us tools and revealing blind spots that were hurting our relationship. I would trade in all the other marriage seminars to attend The Road it was that life changing.”
Michelle R.- FREE!
“I never expected to walk away feeling healed, complete, loved, fulfilled & free.
The Road has done for me what YEARS of therapy and alcohol abuse never could.
I am validated, I am purposed, I am free to be me!”
Russ and Shelly B. - Saved Marriage
“The words ‘life-changing experience’ tend to be overused. Think about it: if you were to make a list of your total experiences that are truly life changing over the long haul, it’s probably a much shorter list than you might think. The Road was such an experience for Shelly and me. We were going through a difficult time in our marriage and were seeing a relationship counselor. After several sessions, she brought up The Road to us. She very much downplayed the spiritual aspect of the experience deliberately, I believe since this had not been a large part of either of our lives to that point.
“We jumped in headfirst and went through sessions one through three in 2007. We have stayed in touch ever since. Spirituality is now not only part of our relationship it is at the center of it! We believe from the bottom of our hearts that The Road not only enhanced our relationship, but it also saved our marriage.
“We have recommended The Road to many of our friends, both married and single. Those who have gone have been profoundly impacted, each in his or her own way. Please invest this time in yourself and your relationship. You will not be sorry. By the way, Shelly and I will celebrate our thirty-seventh anniversary this year!”
Mitch K. - Changed Life
“Before The Road I was angry and would put up defense walls and shelter myself.
It helped me to turn my life around, to be more trusting, and slow to anger
by using the tools we were taught. It truly changed my life. Thank you.”
Mikaella B. - Worthy
“I was able to become a kid again. I can take risks. I can actually live. I became honest
with myself and others and am now living as a woman who is worthy, authentic, and cherished.”
Don K. - Best Days Ahead
“I feel I can now move forward with my life, knowing my best days are ahead of me.
Fantastic program! Thank you so much.”
