Being in a safe environment and being able to grow spiritually has made me able to cope with outside influences, aka LIFE. OBH has been a GOD send to me. My growth has been astronomical. I have a better understanding of the bible and what I need to do to be a good man in Christ. I attend the Monday night men’s discipleship at PBC and have learned a lot. I help set up for Step Closer which I truly enjoy. Each Sunday after set up I call my mom and talk with her for a half an hour. I am planning a trip to go see her in Tucson, AZ. It will be the first time she has seen me willingly clean and sober. I came out to CA in Oct of 2011 and I was on the verge of suicide. I now have the tools to make my life better both spiritually and morally. I am a long way from perfect, but I am striving for it. I find a real peace of mind most of the time. I know I have a ways to go but at least I am on the right path.
