Bill's Story

"Hope has taught me to just be myself and let God dwell in me. I’m so much more understanding of other people. I never understood kindness but the staff at Hope really model that to me. This whole life is new to me. I’m sober and I get to truly live for the first time. It’s all new and scary, but I love it. I’ve always wanted peace and now I finally have it. When I first got to Hope, I couldn’t trust people. When I opened up and started sharing, God started to change me. I’m learning. I’m learning to live all over again. I always knew there was a God, because that’s how I was raised. But I never knew I could feel his presence or be with him. And now, I find myself walking down the street talking to God and enjoying his presence!”
