Recently, I asked a new Living in Color participant to share something with you that she is personally finding helpful. This is what she wrote for you….
“Spring is in the air! The flowers are blooming, night no longer comes at 5 o’clock, and the hint of summer comes with the sun. It is a beautiful time for new beginnings! It is also the time for Easter and Mother’s Day! Get ready to be ambushed by pictures of children sitting on the Easter Bunny’s lap and going on Easter Egg hunts. And for some, a Mother’s Day passing with no children to celebrate YOU. Even the most beautiful times come with triggers. The Living in Color workbook (an 8-week healing support group available through our aR programs) says, “Don’t expect to be able to tolerate your grief if you don’t eat or sleep. Part of your commitment to recovery involves a commitment to your own health.” So be good to yourself this season. Find a piece of paper. Even a post-it note will do, and on it write at least 3 reasons why you are worth taking care of. Then put it somewhere you will see it all the time. Every day read your list, and remind yourself to do something nice, just for you.”

Living in Color – Openings Available This Spring!
Living in Color is a post-abortion recovery and healing program designed for use by a small, facilitator-led support group.
The small group meets once per week for 8 weeks and a workbook is used as a guide for the group.
What Living in Color participants are saying:
“I am so blessed to have completed the Living in Color sessions. [I can’t believe] the Freedom I feel…free from guilt and shame, No more anger toward my Mom or my ex-husband and knowing that I have 2 daughters who love me and don’t have anger or resentment toward me! What an amazing Journey…”
“Keep going through it…you’ll love the outcome! Very eye-opening yet comforting! Love how personal! The beginning of a better mind.”
“I found Living in Color to be helpful and supportive because I was able to share my experience with others open and honestly… has been so healing in all areas of my life.”
