At L.I.F.E.'S. Healing Choices we...
 
           L - Live by faith in God; one day at a time.
 
           I - Intentionally choose to deal with issues God's way.
 
           F - Find love, acceptance, worth and purpose in Jesus Christ.
 
           E - Encourage each other that our goal is progress, not perfection.
 
           S - Share our experience, strength and hope with others in need.

 

Life’s Healing Choices is a place to find hope, encouragement, support, and

unconditional love. Our meetings provide a place where you can connect to other

people, develop close friendships, and share openly and honestly about real life

in a safe, confidential environment. In doing life together, fertile ground is sown

for the healing process to begin.  Shame and pride are left behind. Meetings are

Christ-centered and biblically-based.  We learn how to be transformed from the 

inside out by renewing our minds with the Word of God (the Bible).

Life’s Healing Choices is based around Eight Principles that directly correlate with the

12 Steps of AA. These principles, however, are Christ-centered and biblically-based. They are…

1. We realize we are not God and admit that we are powerless to control our tendency to do the wrong

     thing and that our lives are unmanageable apart from Jesus Christ.

2. Having put our faith in God through the final work of Jesus Christ on the Cross, we utilize three

     resources: i) the Word of God, ii) the indwelling Spirit of God and iii) the people of God to help us

     overcome our hurts, hang-ups and habits.

3. Consciously choose to commit our entire lives and wills to Christ’s care and control.

4. Utilizing our three resources, we openly examine and confess our faults to ourselves, to God and

     to at least one mature, trustworthy Christian. 

5. Willingly submit to any and all changes God wants to make in our lives and humbly allow Him to

     help us put off our old natures with their character defects and partake of His holy nature in the form

     of the fruit of the Spirit.

6. Evaluate all of our relationships, past and present. Offer forgiveness to those who have hurt us and

     make amends for harm we’ve done to others when possible, except when to do so would harm them

     or others.

7. Reserve a daily time with God for self-examination, Bible reading, and prayer in order to know God

     more intimately and His commands and principles as found in the Bible.  We also form relationships

     with other believers and become active participants in a local church.

8. As we consistently walk in the freedom that we experience as a result of these principles we: i) take

     this message to others who struggle with hurts, hang-ups and habits, and ii) we seek God’s perfect

     will for our lives; honoring Him by offering ourselves to Him completely.
