Freedom Session has given our church the tools we need to effectively help the broken and wounded in a practical way, leading them to freedom and healing. The Freedom Session process of working the steps is completely different than any other step work I have done before. It has been life changing for me and, literally, hundreds of people in our church.
I love the way Freedom Session brings all who are struggling together in large group and then addresses the individual themes of recovery in small group. Each year, people that would never willingly be in the same room at the same time find that Christâ€™s forgiveness and healing is not just for them but also for those that they've despised, maybe even some who represent the very root of their personal pain/grief. The transformations process is miraculous - peoples' countenances change (how they sit, walk, talk, even how they dress changes!). I wish I could take "before and after"Freedom Session pictures of each participant.
The Participant's Guide workbooks are thought provoking and easy to understand, biblical, yet practical. They provide a teaching outline, directions and questions for small group discussion. They encourage each participant who takes it seriously to dig deep during the week in a weekly homework assignment. Even our facilitators who've graduated from the program start over with a new book each year and find an even deeper level of healing.
I am grateful to Jesus Christ and Freedom Session for showing me how to use my the pain of my own life to help others find healing in ways beyond my dreams or imagination!
