“As long as the Holy Spirit lives within me, I can radiate that same blessing to others out there as well. That’s my whole goal. It’s easy to feel so isolated and so alone, so much in the darkness. But all it takes is one person to say there is hope.”

“I used to think to myself, this is a 12-to-18-month program, and then I’m done. But no, this is for the rest of my life. Just because I graduate doesn’t mean the battle’s over. And I’m learning that I have to get rid of the old flesh, put on the new flesh, and never pick up those old habits again” – Isaac
