The seventh week Homecomers presentation participants

We met a young women named Tara who was a faithful participant with our Friday evening Bible study group at the women’s minimum facility. We not only did Bible studies but showed the series Free Indeed and we also talked about healthy living, specifically the eight principles of optimal health. When Tara was released, she began a group at the Anchor Recovery Center that she called “The Homecomers Group.” This group was comprised of individuals who had been released from prison and who were in recovery. Tara invited us to share our testimonies and give our NEWSTART health presentations. I did research into how the eight individual principles help people who are in recovery from drugs and alcohol.  For the first two weeks, Tanya provided samples from ten recipes based on affordable healthy ingredients and the group was given the opportunity to rate the food samples. They loved the food! We all developed a bond of friendship that will never be forgotten.
