Got Roots?

Ever wonder why problems return? We work so hard at getting rid of the drinking, drugging, anger, depression or what ever hurt or pain we have; only to find the problem spring back up and likely with a vengeance.

It's time to cut the wound open again so that true healing can take place.

  • The average person falls asleep in seven minutes?
  • The longest recorded flight of a chicken is thirteen seconds? 
Truth changes lives, but not all truth is life changing. So, how do we find the truth with the power to change?
