The year 2020 was a year like no other.

Fear, isolation, loss, uncertainty. The list of what we experienced could go on and on. We did not prepare for it. We just had to react to it. We had to keep driving forward. But it's now 2021 and last year is in the rear-view mirror. People are emerging again. Life is looking brighter. Smiles are returning. It is human nature to just keep moving forward and not stop to assess the wear and tear on our lives. We are not machines that just need more fuel and fluids. We are human beings created in the image of God and we must rest and recover from hard times. This does not happen naturally, you have to make a plan to be successful. Take a minute and listen to Hannah share why it's important to have a plan for recovery.

My Recovery Plan

Our hope is over the days ahead you can discover where you are in your journey and what areas of life that need rest and recovery. My Recovery Plan has been created to help you do just that. Each day will identify a crucial area of life, a passage of Scripture to speak into this area, a call to action, and a written prayer you can use to commit the day to God. This is not a formula, but a simple guide to help you personalize your recovery. We hope you enjoy the journey and begin to experience recovery for yourself.
