TAKE YOUR LIFE BACK -“I want to have better relationships . . . but is it all on me to fix things?” “This person’s approval means everything to me. It’s
like it controls me.” “Why can’t I get free from this cycle?” If you find yourself having these feelings, it’s time to take your life back. Through personal examples, clinical insights, and spiritual truth, Stephen Arterburn and David Stoop will show you how. Your past and current circumstances don’t have to define you, and they don’t have to determine thedirection of your life.

My name is TR, and I was a part of the Boundaries group that started in January that Lorraine Charbonneau led. I saw the evaluation form and I do not feel like it really gives you a true picture of how impactful this class has been for me. I wanted to be sure to share that with you.
A year ago in the spring I was helping a teenage girl work through some struggles; this triggered some things in me and threw me into dealing with some major anxiety because of unresolved things that have happened in my childhood.
When I checked out the [[[[[Eve Center]]]]]website in December, I noticed the boundaries class. Boundaries are something that I thought might be a good idea to set with my parents- especially my mother… little did I know how much what I would learn would turn my world upside down- in a good way. I truly mean that.
There were red flags all over the place that I had some major work to do. I realized that I have had poor boundaries myself in taking on responsibility that is not mine… and I have come to learn in this group that my mother had and continues to have some MAJOR MAJOR boundary issues. Sometimes I would leave class crying because I could check off almost every single [[[[[boundary violation]]]]].
I never really knew how to handle my mother growing up- but I am learning how to deal with her now with these new boundaries I am putting into place. She does not like it AT ALL. She is fighting back and throwing “trantrums,” but this group has helped to support me in the midst of this. I do not think anyone can set boundaries like this without support from other people. This group is not just a class about learning a cool new idea… This is serious life-changing work!
I figured out in this group that boundaries were a BIG answer to a lot of my anxiety and depression. I am finally dealing with pain that has happened through the years that I never have before. I am not totally on the other side to freedom yet, but I am taking steps and feeling more and more hope.
I am so so thankful that I found the Eve Center. I look forward to hopefully being able to serve there in the future and help other people with the issues that I have dealt with in my life. My friends are probably sick of me giving them lessons about boundaries and talking about how awesome the Eve Center is! :
