No Light at the End of the Tunnel? Find Peace in the Dark
Join us for a heartfelt gathering as we bring together two mothers who have discovered the peace that transcends understanding amidst the darkness of their child’s addiction.
One of our courageous speakers will share her journey with vulnerability, openly discussing the weight of her own past addiction and the lingering question of its impact on her child's struggles.
The other speaker will draw you in with her own narrative of strength, resilience, and unwavering support for her child facing addiction.
Both women will share their personal experiences with uncertainty, pain, and hope, intimately experiencing the hope only Jesus can bring. By telling their story, what helped, and what didn't, they hope to offer a space of understanding, empathy, and inspiration for all who share a similar path.
