Sonia, one of the leaders

My name is Sonia. I am a native of Lompoc since 1977.I am a mother of two adult children and Nonnie of 2 grandsons. I started attending Celebrate Recovery in 2008 by looking into the program for a former boyfriend. I later joined a Women’s 12 step group to find I was a great Co-dependent. In 2013 I attended Leadership classes at Saddle Back Church Summit in Lake Forest Ca. From 2008 to date I have completed 3 Women’s 12 step groups, have co-lead groups  Trinity Church of Nazarene in Lompoc and was a facilitator at Celebrate Recovery in Aurora Colorado. I can now say,  I realized I’m not God. I admitted that I am powerless to control my tendency to do the wrong thing and that my life was unmanageable. Today I am a grateful believer in Jesus Christ,  free of Co-dependency,  and working on being a better me to set an example for others with my testimony. Celebrate Recovery works because I worked it and today  I am worth it!

Greetings my name is Michael.  Celebrate Recover continues to help me with my hurts, hang-ups, and habits.  I struggle with anxiety, which is expressed in my nervous eating.  Currently, I am working through my first step study, with the goal of becoming more like my Lord & Savior, Christ Jesus.  Gratefully, I can rest in knowing that God loves and cares for his children, which includes me.  My other goal is to learn Celebrate Recovery, so that I may better serve. I have lived in Lompoc for the last five year.  I am married to by beautiful wife and the father of two lovely children.
