I came to Narrow Road telling myself and believing so many lies.
” I was pondering my life one morning recently and I thought to myself, “I can say that I truly love myself and how God has made me.”
I came to Narrow Road telling myself and believing so many lies. Lies about who I was ‘supposed’ to be, lies about what was ‘supposed’ to make me happy and bring me joy and the lie that alcohol brought me life. Narrow Road, along with my family and friends, could speak truth into my life and bring light to the obstacles and struggles that had brought me to such a
dark place. So much of the battle is in our minds. It is a cleaning out process of old beliefs and patterns of thinking. When you learn how to take every thought captive, you live with great ease.
Today the old me is in the grave and I walk in victory; working to reach the beauty and freedom that is in Christ. I have had a complete change of heart towards my purpose in life and what it really means to live! I choose everyday to live in truth and not in lies; especially the truth that I am fearfully and wonderfully made. ” – Lisa J, Calgary
I came to narrow road completely broken, paralyzed with self hatred.
” Wanting to just exist and not live. I had a belief system based solely on lies and self survival! I lived life on a roller coaster of emotions with buried bitterness! Unwanted, unloved and destined to be alone, is what I believed and validated daily by drinking myself to death.
The Narrow Road Home has opened my eyes to light, and slowly and patiently pulled me out of my hole to see light and hope! They tore down my walls; replaced my lies with truth and Jesus! They taught me about forgiveness and love! How much I’m loved, how I have purpose and meaning!
More important than teaching me, the Narrow Road has shown me there IS such thing as “radical love “. That discomfort and disappointments are beautiful miracles in disguise and mercy does exist. I now live life with new ambitions and aspirations.
I walk in gratitude with a humble confidence knowing every minute matters to God! I know now and whole heartedly believe I was saved by grace, which allows me to walk in love and compassion with a deep inner peace. ” – Janice A, Calgary
Insecure, immature, fearful, timid, shy, low self esteem, hatred for the world, sad inside, confused…
” These all controlled my life so I turned to drugs and alcohol, which only fueled the fire. I was done, ready to end it all. I had a plan, I just needed the place. Instead of a place to end my life, I was given and name and phone number.
I called it.
I entered the Narrow Road Home at 50 years old completely broken in every way. I come from a background without any faith, so an introduction to Jesus was a strange thing to me. With the recovery and healing of this program, it has been the MOST rewarding and amazing journey of my life!!
With the staff helping me to heal all the hurt and pain throughout my life, leading me to the path that was created for me with Jesus. I now walk with the Holy Spirit leading and guiding me every day. God has blessed me over and over again in ways I can’t even express. I am truly so very grateful for everything this program has done for me. ” – Dixie L, Calgary
Every day I look into the sky and say “Thank You God for my life today!”
” Coming into the Narrow Road Home, I was so broken. I didn’t think there was anything that could help me overcome my addiction, or brokenness from my past. I honestly didn’t care if I woke up the next morning most days. The first few days were a bit of a struggle, mostly from detoxing from all the toxins I had put in my body over, and over again. Once I started to connect with the other girls and the staff at the house, I began to feel a lot more comfortable. I think the biggest reason for this was because we could all relate in some way. I came to the Narrow Road intending to be done in 30 days. I thought that’s what it would take to “fix me”. Ha Ha! About three weeks in, I realized that I was nowhere near the healing goal I had in my mind. I had a really good start, but was just beginning to get to the stuff that had been haunting me my entire life. I agreed to stay until that healing goal was met, and until the counsellors, that I completely trusted, could see that I was ready.
It took some hard work, and a lot of perseverance but we did it! I say “we” because I wouldn’t have been able to do it on my own without the help of Kim and the staff at the Narrow Road Home. I am finally FREE from my brokenness and self hatred. Every day I look into the sky and say, Thank You God for my life today! The most freeing part of healing is loving who I am today. I live my life with integrity, love and hope. I will always have struggles in my life, as every person does, but now I know how to deal with those tough situations. Even though I have moved on from the Narrow Road, the staff and girls are my support 150%. I am so grateful for my life today! Thank you EVERYONE at the Narrow Road Home. I love you all very much. God Bless You. ” – Laurin, Calgary
God used the Narrow Road to perform a miracle in my life!
” Before I arrived at the Narrow Road Home I felt lost, my family relationships where falling apart, and I wasn’t able to hold down a job. I was a Christian all my life but I felt like there were things in my life that were holding me back from being the person I needed to be. I needed healing for my soul, and counselling support to help me figure out where things had gone wrong in my life. When I had heard about The Narrow Road Home, a faith based recovery house, I knew it was something that God could use for my personal healing, and He was faithful! The Narrow Road Home didn’t just help me work through my own personal issues; they also worked with my family through the healing process. I have now returned home to my husband and children with a renewed faith, and a brand new marriage that I never even dreamt was possible. God used the Narrow Road Home to perform a miracle in my life and heal my family, and for that I am eternally thankful!! ” – Jolene, Sylvan Lake.
