Our daughter always seemed in touch with Nature but not with us, or Christ, or Teachers, Nature seemed to be the only healthy thing she wanted. She lost all interest in previous interests and we could tell she was falling into a deep depression, she seemed annoyed that we wanted to get her help or send her anywhere. "Why don't you just leave me alone and let me sleep?" was her response to help. She no longer wanted to be with friends either. When we found New Horizons we knew she would love it! The setting was perfect for her! After we had enrolled her we showed her pictures of the place, area, rooms and all! She fell in love with it! The first glimmer in a tunnel of despair for her! The months ahead had plenty of tough spots, but the staff and counselors stayed with her, and her love for the area made her want to stay and try! New Horizons was definitely a Godsend!
We had tried everything, discipline, medicine, more discipline,and Doctors, it just didn't seem to help our son, You could see it in his eyes, he wanted to be able to focus too but none of us had the skills or resources to help him appropriately. That is when we started looking and with time and effort found Wolf Creek Academy, we made a few calls, and met with them. Amazing! And he is such a happier young man for it!
Our adopted twins both started down the wrong road early in their teen life, and while we knew it wasn't anything we had done, we also had no idea how to help them, that is when we met Mark Greggston at a local church event. We then learned about Heartlight Ministries, and soon we went and visited with the staff. We feel like our steps were definitely directed by the Lord. Now, our kids are nearly grown and we have a happy, healthy, and loving family! Our relationships with each other and with Christ have grown enormously!
Agape boarding school had one of the best programs in its category, and they make it affordable, the turn around in the students is dynamic! As a teacher I have referred a few young men to this program and when they return, they are healthier happier Godly young men who end up thanking their parents for sending them!
