Pathways to Freedom, Life, and Joy
I survived, and thrive through divorce, a manic depressive and drug-addicted son, and the addiction of co-dependency and work-alcoholism through the ministry of Pathway Counseling. I discovered Pathway through my church many years ago when I was seeking counseling for my son. After we drove to the site for our first counseling session, my son refused to go inside. So, after a short argument, I decided that I would not waste the session and went instead of my son. I found hope and encouragement and began to discover my co-dependency. Through Pathway, I developed a support group of trusted friends and counselors who helped me recognize and break my pattern of co-dependency, which gave my son the time and self-dependency he needed to make his own choices concerning drug use. Through Pathway, I attended a divorce recovery class and worked my recovery in a supportive environment that allowed me to heal and grow closer in my relationship with God, my Heavenly Father. I began to see God’s power displayed through my failures. I was able to walk more in God’s perfect peace and less dependent on trying to make things peaceful. My relationships have changed. I am now happily remarried. My son has a family of his own and I am facing the new challenges today with support from God and others, including the Pathway team!
