I have been attending Beauty From Ashes meetings for quite a few months now. I had no idea what to expect and I had my fears of talking about my life, my past, and my addiction. All of my fears literally disappeared when I met Christa Hicks. She is loving, honest, kind, and understanding. I soon realized that this was not only Christa, but the entire organization of Beauty From Ashes. I love sharing my story and learning a better way of living in Christ. My life has truly been changed by these precious women of God and I thank Him every single that I have a safe place to go, and women that are not only equipped to help me, but anxious to do so as well. If you are struggling and feeling hopeless, just come and speak with any of us. We are in this thing called "life" together, and together we will overcome! Thank you Christa, Sharon, and all of you ladies that light up my day each time I am with you!

I was someone that received help from Beauty from Ashes. Since I lived in California I received counseling by phone. This was during BFA's early days and Julie was amazing and really handled each conversation with special care. BFA really made a difference in my life at a time when I was most fragile in my recovery and I felt very cared for. I will be recommending other women who are local to BFA.
