IT’S TIME TO TURN YOUR SETBACKS INTO COMEBACKS

Hey Friends, This past week we at the Foundations for Recovery suffered a a lost to the world of addiction. Allow me to take a moment and share with you about a young man named Jesse who we all began to love when he first walked through our doors at FFR. We had our offices at that time at the Historic Woolworth Building in downtown Medford and when Jesse walked through our doors I remember seeing this quiet yet reserved kid that definitely wanted freedom.

However...

“God is speaking, Perhaps you’re not listening”

Felt like I needed to share this… Titled: “God is Speaking….Perhaps you’re not Listening.” I know I shouldn’t be surprised that those who have never felt God in their lives would want to mock those who say that we have. This certain tv personality thinks it’s humerous to call those that “hear” from God mental, even taking a shot at our Vice President. I find it strange that this individual goes on her daily tv show and speaks about love and tolerance but in the same voice mocks that in which she doesn’t understand.
