Addiction, Abuse & Identity
Most of us have found ourselves at some point relying on habits or addictions that hurt us, damage our relationships or limit our connection with God. Many of us have also experienced abuse (physical, sexual, emotional, spiritual, neglect, domestic abuse) and our identity has suffered. Consider one of the Christ-centered options below to work through that abuse, escape those self-destructive habits and find your healthy identity:

First Image has been working to live out God’s heart to renew his image in the lives of those that have been impacted by sexual brokenness and abortion for over 30 years. We believe God has called us to serve the women in our city facing unplanned pregnancies, the children they carry, students who are in desperate need of transformation in their relationships and sexuality, and men and women burdened by the pain of past abortion. We encourage our whole faith family to serve and to participate in the annual bottle fundraising drive.
We often find ourselves in need of professional counseling to deal with a past trauma, current stressor, struggling marriage or parenting issue. Rolling Hills doesn’t offer on-going therapy here on our campus, but our Wholeness Pastor, Carolyn Lu, is a Licensed Professional Counselor. She is available to consult with you and refer you to a local Christian counselor or psychologist that could best work with you on your area of concern. To schedule an appointment with Carolyn, contact email@example.com.
