U-TURN To God

100% of your purchase goes directly to Faith Farm Ministries' free addiction recovery programs that help save lives like those you will meet as your read these testimonies of broken lives that have been changed by the power of God. Addiction knows no boundaries. Some Faith Farm Ministries' students have been abused, broken, prostituted, or convicted as criminals; some having served prison time. Others come as children from loving homes and a church background, but were sidetracked into drugs and alcohol by peer pressure. Some have been upstanding citizens who were involved in some kind of accident or sustained an injury that led to an addiction to prescription pain medicines and have lost everything. Others have been very well off financially and had their lives destroyed because of their addictions. Regardless of their circumstances, they have made a complete "U-TURN" in their lives. These are stories of lives transformed by the power of unconditional love and the grace of God.
Dean Webb has done an excellent job of bringing a book to the reader that testifies of the grace, mercy, and goodness of the Lord, as He stands waiting, with open arms, to welcome home His prodigal sons and daughters, whose lives have been shattered by addiction. This book is a celebration of all who have passed through the gates of Faith Farm Ministries and were set free by the power of Almighty God.
No one who made a choice to socially use a mood-altering substance intended to become addicted to it. Addiction is destructive for families, friends, finance, relationships, jobs, health, and really, anything that a person holds dear to their heart, including his own life, if he does not get help.
An old Japanese proverb says, "First the man takes a drink, then the drink takes a drink, then the drink takes the man." The same can be true for any mood-altering substance, when a man or a woman has an addictive personality.
Webster's New World Dictionary defines rehabilitation as, "to restore to rank, reputation, etc., which one has lost; to put back in good condition."
Faith Farm Ministries is NOT committed to putting "back in good condition." We are committed to regeneration. Webster's defines regeneration as, "spiritually reborn; renewed; to cause to be spiritually reborn; to be made anew."
No one can argue that addiction is now at epidemic levels. Everyone knows someone; a loved one, a neighbor, a co-worker or friend who has addiction issues. Overcoming codependency can be as difficult a challenge as overcoming an addiction.
Faith Farm lives out its purpose for our students daily: "Restoring Hope... One Life at a Time" and these are their stories. Please enjoy reading them.
