|These DVDs are designed to provide encouragement to groups and individuals as they grow in their own recovery.|
Testimonies have been part of Celebrate Recovery since the very first meeting in November 1991. The purpose of the “Testimonies To Go” DVD is twofold: (1) To help new Celebrate Recovery ministries get started with providing testimonies as a regular part of their weekly large and small group time; and (2) to provide encouragement to all of the courageous individuals as they grow in their own recoveries.
The DVD shows how God used Celebrate Recovery to change the lives of eight believers all struggling with different hurts, habits and hang-ups.
CJ and LINDA: Alcoholism, codependency and infidelity almost destroyed their marriage. They share how surrendering themselves and their marriage to God and working the Celebrate Recovery programme restored their relationship.
LORI: As a love and relationship addict, she encountered many abusive relationships. She found healing by sharing God’s grace with other women in similar circumstances.
CARL: A child of an alcoholic, he was raised in a very legalistic, performance based home. At Celebrate Recovery, he found a loving and grace-filled relationship with Christ and shares the freeing Good News with others.
CARI: Sex, drugs and alcohol ruled her life. She was the modern day story of the “Woman at the Well.” After allowing Christ to change her life, she now gratefully shares her powerful testimony.
BOB: He isolated himself from his family as a teenager due to his alcoholism/addiction. He shares how his life was completely transformed by the power of Jesus Christ through working the Celebrate Recovery programme. As a young adult, he found meaning and purpose for his life and has been used by God to lead his family to Christ.
KEITH and VIV: Grief, loss and codependency were robbing them of the joy-filled life God had for them. After starting a Celebrate Recovery to help others, this actively serving Christian couple share how they found greater blessing and fulfillment in their own lives as well.
