Eight Reasons You Can Change




Those who have become victims of violations of our own selves or by the hands of others often feel hopelessly bound to the past. Some feel they will never be able to “break free” from the emotional bondage and some feel their lives will never change. The reason is that a victim is focused on the problem, not the solution.

The good news is that YOU CAN CHANGE.
You must be willing to take responsibility for your life now, today.

Open the door of your heart and allow God to have free access.

Then, you will be able to turn around away from the problems and focus on the solution.
