Are you or someone you love experiencing depression? Neuropsychologist, Dr. Michelle Bengston wrote Hope Prevails to assure you that you are not alone because she has been there too. "Even as a professional, I wasn't immune to depression.  I've gone through it.  Unfortunately, when I walked through my own valley of depression I felt like the whole world was laughing but me.  What I most longed for was someone to come alongside me to say, 'Me too.'"
This book offers tangible help, hope, and healing from someone who has been there and has come out on the other side. 
Hope Prevails: Monday Evenings, 6:30-8:30 beginning September 13th

BOUNDARIES : Does your life feel like it's out of control? Perhaps you feel like
you have to say yes to everyone's requests. Maybe you find yourself readily
taking responsibility for others' feelings and problems. Or perhaps you focus so
much on being loving and unselfish that you've forgotten your own limits and
limitations. Or maybe it's all of the above. In Boundaries, Drs. Henry Cloud and
John Townsend help you learn when to say yes and know how to say no in
order to take control of your life and set healthy, biblical boundaries.

and empowering approach to filling your unmet mothering needs in healthy,

GRIEF : How do you cope when a deep or tragic loss leaves you feeling empty,
angry, or alone? Coping with the loss of a loved one or any type of loss requires
healing, and healing is a journey. While there are no shortcuts through the
stages of grief, God promises not to leave you in the valley of despair. There are
all types of grief; from the normal expression you feel when something tragic
and unexpected happens, such as the loss of a loved one, to chronic grief and
repressed grief. This Christian book will help you determine what may have
caused grief in your life and help you on the steps to recovery. Learn what "grief
work" is and how it can help you commit to working through difficult grief and
the stress that goes along with it.

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 the
direction of your life.

Hi!

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.

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! :

Press on-

TR
