My name is Barbara Dorey. I am a ministry leader at Christ the King Lutheran Church for Celebrate Recovery. I had a fairly average childhood ( great parents, a few traumas but for the most part a happy upbringing.)I was raised in the church and I accepted Christ at the age of 16. I finished college with an associates degree in computer science and married my high school sweetheart. We raised two sons while traveling all over the USA for my husband's job. One of my sons fell in love with a manic depressive women who chooses to self medicate with drugs and alcohol. She is the mother of my grandson. I did not know how to handle this. I worried to the point that it was making me ill. One day as I went into Starbucks, I saw an acquaintance of mine, he looked at me and asked if I was alright. Normally I would of said โ€œI am fineโ€ but instead I said โ€œno Iโ€™m notโ€. We sat down and talked for an hour or so. He shared his story and the steps that saved his life . Little did I know that this would start me on my road to recovery. We worked on a step study together and I spoke to him everyday for 10 years. I became so relieved of burdens I did not know I had. I had to give this away to anyone who wanted Godโ€™s love, his wisdom, and freedom from past hurts. I have been doing this for 19 years. My Sponsor said โ€œsomeday you will be happy that an alcoholic came into your lifeโ€. You can imagine the eye rolling I gave him. It turns out that he was right. Having her in my life has led me into my purpose. What can be better than that? I feel content and complete where God has me. I am a grateful believer in Jesus Christ who loves to share recovery.

They create a bridge for women who are ready to exit the life of human trafficking, or sex industry into a life of freedom, inner healing, empowerment, and education.

We exist to provide truth, identity and self-worth through non-judgment to women everywhere. Our teams also provide training for churches, groups, and organizations to duplicate strip club outreach in their areas with education, anti- human trafficking training and educating those in the sex industry.

Heels to Halos has  recently launched "People Aren't Price Tags"  in club education. Their team goes inside the strip club educating with classes on signs of human trafficking, budgeting classes, and healthy relationships.

Megan has been set free from addiction and life in the adult industry for over 17 years and counting! She is also the mother of a childhood cancer survivor, three teenagers,  and  just celebrated 17 years of marriage

30 days of change: a healing journey for the family

From the Author

On our social media pages, we see "get your steps in, drink your water, lose weight" challenges. These are personal goals and are great! In our challenge for change, what about our children? Well, I have created this 30 days challenge I call "30 days of change: a healing journey for the family." Don't worry it's fun too! I got this concept because every year our family has a tradition to do activities every day in December until Christmas day " 25 days of Christmas." Starting on day one in December we do a fun family-centered activity that culminates on Christmas day. This journey is similar. It's time to create family structure, rules, balance in the home, and create lasting memories. This is 25 days of Christmas without Christmas. Choose one thing that will be the focus of your 30 days such as eating meals together, chores, forgiveness, and healing. Some days will be just for you - a time to reflect, pray, and read the word of God. On other days, the entire family will join in. Make sure to let your family know about the 30-day challenge so they will be fully engaged and see the true change and transformation that is coming.
