Let's Heal Together (LHT)
"the people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light, and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death, on them a light has dawned.”
"Wilt Thou Be Made Whole?" (John 5:6)
Let’s Heal Together (LHT) is a monthly support group for us to gather and grow personally, professionally, and spiritually. Wholeness is the theme we encourage to reach their full potential. We are here to care and serve as you strive to live a better quality of life for the sake of your children. Our concern is for your well-being to be made whole. We take a holistic approach to move from brokenness to wholeness.
What is wholeness?
One of the things God wants most for us is to be whole. Wholeness is the quality of being complete, not broken or divided into parts; it is realized and therefore received. Some parts of our soul, mind, will, and emotions are damaged, injured, or marred. We must recognize the brokenness in our minds, bodies, soul, emotions, and relationships. The many aspects that make our being, makes wholeness so complicated. However, our soul is restored if we desire to be transformed and intentional about it. It will not typically just happen unless we put forth the effort.
The recurrent nature of our lives means that we all face periods of transition and change. We think about that chance to begin again or follow a different path. Life is beautiful! But it also can be unpredictable, challenging, and demanding. Most people struggle in their personal lives, relationships, children, activities, and finances. The truth is that most of these pose a challenge to those in particular situations. How do we make choices that lead to peace and abundance rather than stress or regret? Many people do not know what to do when confronted with modern-life concerns. You can maximize life’s opportunities and awaken your creative potential with the correct information and practice.
Your past is something that cannot be changed, and it is imperative for you to avoid being tied to it. Many people refuse to change because they are emotionally attached to their past. Some prefer to stay in their comfort zone. It could be dangerous because your past can keep you from looking at your present situation with a futuristic approach to life. Therefore, your quest to change should not be based on your emotions but rather a logical process. The point is to re-evaluate the person you are and the person you want to be. It may not be all bad, but simply misguided. However, you are the sum of all your life experiences, and with change, there is no limit to the power and success you can achieve.

"I thank God for sending Stephanie in my life to take the time to teach me and not give up or label me as others did in my past. I know sometimes I have made the wrong choices but she was always there with open arms and late-night talks on the phone or in- person to motivate me with God's help letting me know the race is still on. I pray that she continues to move forward."
