I was referred to the boot camp by a friend in 2004. I was sleeping in his spare room and in bad shape. I was hurting after getting out of a relationship and spiraling down into serious drug and alcohol abuse. My life was miserable, painful and meaningless. I had no expectations from the boot camp and only went so my friend wouldn’t throw me out of his home. The only thing I cared about was my next high. After stalling for two months I decided to get clean enough to attend. What happened at the boot camp was a miracle! I realized that my broken heart and drug abuse were the symptoms, not the causes of my problems. I was pushed to look deep inside. When I did, I realized how much my past spiritual damage was holding me back. I was raised in very strict religious home that was very legalistic. I thought I left that behind when I moved out at 17. In reality, I was still carrying all the guilt, shame and rejection around from my childhood. The boot camp helped me process and get rid of that. I was able to open up to God and receive his healing and love in all areas of my life. I would have never believed my life could be as good as it is now. My life has changed direction and the boot camp was the intersection where I made that right turn.
