Did Today’s Episode Get You Thinking?

Most people's problems are so deep and complicated, they are not solved on their own. I give advice which can help but Tara, Frankie, and Tyler need to take the next right step. It's not going to be easy but that's why we have a lot of resources to help them and you, if you are facing your own struggles.

Resources to help you with your struggles:

  • Take a look at my eBooks: Understanding Substance Abuse, and Understanding a Relationship with God.
  • Need a safe place to learn how to overcome your hurts, habits, and hang-ups? You will find free group support at Celebrate Recovery. Find a support group by state:
  • To learn more about having a meaningful relationship with God, check out my podcast episode 9: Find Hope and Peace Through a Relationship with God. I talked to a guy named Ronnie. The call was amazing, it really spoke to me. I think you’ll like it a lot. It just might be the most important podcast you’ll ever listen to.
  • Need prayer? I believe God wants to change your life and mine, through prayer. If you need prayer and would like to have someone pray for you, go to the TheHopeLine Prayer page and check it out.
