“You can get kicked down, but you don’t have to stay down.”
Herb came to Guiding Light’s 90-day Back to Work program knowing that he would get back on his feet. Several years ago, he went through the Guiding Light Recovery program, but recently he stumbled in his recovery and found himself unemployed.
Many in recovery will relapse. “It’s part of the recovery process; it’s part of your journey,” says Stuart Ray, Executive Director at Guiding Light.
Herb came back with determination. He knew what he had to do. He stayed clean and sober. He found a job at Spectrum Industries and immediately began saving 75% of his paycheck. Today, he is employed full-time and has moved into his own apartment.
Over lunch, in chatting about the Back to Work program, Herb was asked if he had anything he would like to share with our donors. He said, “You will appreciate this program even more when you see what Guiding Light does for men like me.”
THIS MEANS THAT ANYONE WHO BELONGS TO CHRIST HAS BECOME A NEW PERSON. THE OLD LIFE IS GONE; A NEW LIFE HAS BEGUN!
