The harmony house helped me become what I am now. i lost everything when i went to jail and they provided me with a safe place to stay and learn how to recover. They act as a community to help people who are struggling in recovery from advice to rides to meetings and so on. shannon is always there to support you as long as your trying. I recomend this to any person trying to better your life.
ps. the rules arnt that bad
Having the opportunity to go to the harmony house changed my life. I was given the chance to start over with no judgment only understanding and guidance. Getting involved in the fellowship and building true friendship all was apart of me staying focused and not giving up, after many times trying to stop that's what I was good at, giving up. Now I've got a great job with a good company I have my own place I get to keep my taxes this year and biggest of all I've reunited with my children whom are adopted and I hadn't seen since 2012 God is all powerful I am beyond blessed and I'm truly grateful for the harmony house foundation ????????????
When I finally truly gave up and allowed my god to control what happened in my life things slowly started to fall into place.
Even before I left the halfway house I had currently been in I wanted nothing but getting back to the sobriety I had months before.
I went back to what was “comfortable” in my mind and was in for a rude awakening.
Then I reached out to sober friends who were in the Harmony House; just like that God took my car!
If it wasn’t for going to a house with women who truly cared and made getting back into sobriety like a home I wouldn’t be where I am today...
It doesn’t even matter how long or how short you stay but these houses gave me the ability to get back on my feet and back into society.
If you would of asked me in the beginning if I’d be where I am today I would of never imagined it.
And it’s all because someone gave me a chance and allowed me to grow into the person I am today.
Today I built a life of my own for myself and three children and all of that stems from the roots I planted at one of the Harmony Homes!
this was kind of like the 3rd step in getting back into life for me. Shannon and all the people in the homes are so close and help each other so much. It helped me finish my foundation so to speak to continue to build my life on. I now have my daughter back and live in a beautiful country farm house and continue to grow emotionally spiritually and mentally everyday.
Let me first begin with the Harmony house saved my life and I’m gonna explain to you why because most people forget why they are banging on the door before they get there I don’t know about you but I know I needed to learn how to sit my ass down I needed to learn what to do with my downtime I needed to learn how to deal with all the shit in my head I needed to learn how to ask for help how to call somebody when I was feeling some type of way and the only way I was going to do this was to be surrounded by people that had my best interest at heart ❤️ someone that could call me out on my bullshit tell me what I was doing wrong and how to fix it . I didn’t know where I was going but I knew I wasn’t going back to where I came from. The the curfew that was given help me learn that there is nothing out there after dark for me and as I continued to do what I had to do my curfew eventually got later but guess what, I no longer needed to go out because I learned that being in at 9 or 10 o’clock at night was OK as long as I wasn’t working I wasn’t missing ANYTHING, the stipulations of going to five meetings a week and getting a sponsor pushed me to find someone that I could talk to to get a support group and to surround myself around women that are doing what they’re supposed to do there were three women that I chose that had what I wanted and when I tell you to this day over year later I’m still chasing them three women one I cannot catch up to that would be Shannon Luton ???? but I continue to try on a daily basis because that woman sincerely has what I want and I know I can call her anytime of any day for anything and she will be there to assist in anyway possible. Making sure I go to my Doctor appointments hell yeah that’s my number one priority because without my medication I am no good to anybody took me a long time to see that!! In doing all these things and remembering why I started this process with the help of all the criteria’s and the security of the house knowing I always had somewhere to go home to that was safe gave me a peace of mind it was the first place I called my home in a long time, (so much so I didn’t want to leave but my responsibility’s we’re calling and it was time to grow up) The Harmony House has made my life possible for what it is today I work a full-time job which I never thought possible in a rehab helping others just like myself I made supervisor in one month busting my ass to prove that I am worthy of the job, did I mention I also have a 401k (RETIREMENT PLAN) I’m 39 years old and never in my life thought I could work let alone have a 401(k) I take care of my stepdaughter (who is mine) she lives with me (YES YOU READ THAT CORRECTLY) my daughters are all in my life and call me on their bad days to ask me for my opinion or my take on things They also call just bullshit and laugh.... let me tell you that’s surpasses ANY drug that has ever gone through my vein!!! The Family that is in my life today is amazing and let me tell you they’re not all blood related that’s the joys of starting all over again and never looking back. I make sure I go to all my doctor appointments, and being pushed to get a job and showing up every day I got the chance to learn how to make money the right way to learn the importance of a dollar learning how to manage my money has given me the luxury of being able to purchase a beautiful car and a beautiful house which I am getting together One day at a time. My credit score is slowing rising because today I have a long term goal of buying a house ???? I have a sponsor who has become more than my best friend I am in a relationship with somebody who loves me who cares for me and who wants nothing but the best for me today I know my worth today I know who I am today I am proud of who I am and what I have become I remember the nights i used to cry and wish I could only have what I have today I remember when they told me to just let it go follow direction and it’ll all work out I also remember the days they told me I would never amount to anything or become more than what I was!!! All you have to do is try and believe me when I tell you it does get better it’s just all about remembering what you set out to accomplish and why, My Life...and My Story...I owe all to the Harmony house And everybody associated with it!!!!
I know this is kind of long and I apologize for that but if you’re reading this I wanted you to get the full detail of what you need to do and to utilize all the people around you in your life today Harmony house Brings the foundation of all you need to start your life over again!! Utilize it!!! Never forget the days you were wishing for The chance in which have to do today!!!
Thank you Shannon Luton!! ????
These are the homes that built me and gave me a purpose when I thought I had none. It was exactly the stepping stone I needed to learn how to not only work a successful recovery but to become a productive member of society! Through working the steps, and growing in the houses I learned how to practice these principles in all my affairs and to give what was so freely given to me!
The Harmony House is absolutely wonderful! They had a huge role in getting me to where I am today! They taught me so many things about life and what it means. They played a huge role in helping me find my higher power and a huge role in helping me to continue sobriety. ????????
