Where Are You Now?
Stage 1: Hopeful
Frustration, despair, or hopelessness may have worn you down. But somehow, you summoned up the courage to fight and not give up on yourself. And now you’re here, Hopeful and looking for solutions. You’ve come to the right place.
Stage 2: Gutsy
On your Hero’s Journey, Gutsy is where the hard work and heavy lifting of recovery and healing happens. Expect to be here for a while because recovery is a marathon, not a sprint.
Stage 3: Braveful
Braveful is a beautiful place to be. While there’s still more recovery work to be done, you now look forward to it as you shift your focus from repair work to growth work.
Stage 4: Heroic
Congratulations! You’re now living a redemptive life. As you continue to use the recovery tools and resources to maintain your recovery and healing, your focus is now on serving God and helping others.
