I came to Journey to the Heart as an overweight young man in need of a lot of change in my life both physically and spiritually. I really enjoyed the Journey and learned a tremendous amount about aligning under God and my authority and getting rid of the secret sins that had been eating away my life. I learned that the power of sin is in its secrecy.
After the Journey, I went to ALERT to honor my Mom and Dad, not because I wanted to. Though it was hard, I grew both physically in strength and endurance and spiritually in faith and reliance on God for my every need.
While taking law enforcement and property care to complete Phases 2 & 3 of ALERT, I learned so much more. One of the most important lessons I learned and am still applying it in my life is the concept of what really matters in life; all the frills and accessories are nothing when I compare them with my relationship with God and others. I must be willing to do anything to honor and defend these relationships.
