A Day For Aniyah

Hey Friends, So I am going to ask a favor of those that absolutely are looking for a blessing as you bless someone else. On Saturday June 25th the Foundations for Recovery will be helping along with several other local businesses to raise funding for Aniyah’s Families Medical expenses as well as to bring awareness to our community regarding the rise of addiction within our community. We at the Foundations for Recovery are looking for volunteers to spend the day with us (9am to 5pm) at Path Church in Central Point. We will be having a car wash, garage sale, dunk tank, carnival games, raffle prizes, sno-cones and much more. So to pull this off we need help, a lot of help. Simply send me a comment, private message, text, message through pigeons, sky writing or whatever is easier and let me know. If I do not have your contact information please send me this information through message. Thank you again for reaching out to bless this family and together I know we will provide HOPE to our community that there is life after addiction. Thank you, Doug Gould Executive...

In the news recently it was stated that every 12 minutes there is an overdose reported in the United States. So what is happening? Why does this number seem to be increasing? Well, let me begin this exhortation with my thoughts on the mentality of how we are viewing treatment. So here it is….to me it appears...

Peer Support Specialist Jesse McIntosh On “Good Friday”

As I was contemplating and meditation on “Good Friday” and what it means to me, I felt compelled to share. I have a track record of making bad decisions. If I had to choose someone for just about anything, I’d probably avoid choosing me. It pains me to say, but is reality that I’ve failed in many different ways. As far back as I can remember, I haven’t been the best at making decisions. I’ve been hurt an awful lot and have rubbed those hurts off onto others throughout my life. I’ve dishonored not only many people who I’ve said I loved, but I dishonored God. This being said, I am guilty; I deserve hell. But God chose to reveal His glory through the cross. But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8). I picture it something like this: I am standing before the judge guilty of punishment… He lays out the verdict and I am accused and convicted. I am ready for prosecution and deserving of it, when the judge takes of His robe and steps down off the bench and says… “But I’ll take his place. I’ll take his guilt and shame. Spare him and punish me instead… I love him too much to allow this to happen.” So as I’m contemplating my savior...
