“Through my teenage years I became a prisoner of my own guilt and shame, I self medicated half of my adult life with alcohol and drugs. Because of the SaveOne class, I no longer deal with depression and guilt. The grace of God is more powerful than any drug. I was able to forgive myself for the choices I made. I now can tell people that my children are in heaven and live with Jesus.”   – Dina

“The guilt and shame I felt for 11 years was unbearable and thank God I found SaveOne. Thanks to SaveOne, I learned that I was not the only one dealing with such pain and it helped me finally accept forgiveness from God and let Him back into my life. I feel free now… God bless you. Keep doing the wonderful work you were born to do”   – Mayra

“Although the freedom from guilt didn’t happen all at once, SaveOne did help me on my path of accepting God’s forgiveness. Once I recognized that pride was keeping me from totally believing in His forgiveness for me (and repenting of it), was I able to be free of the guilt that I had carried  for 30 years. I can now say that I really am FREE of that guilt!!! I also feel free to share about SaveOne with others without feeling any sense of fear or shame. What a blessing SaveOne was for me.”   – Laurie

“When I accepted Jesus at age 42, I immediately experienced God’s love and forgiveness, yet I still couldn’t find a way to forgive myself for what I had done as a teenager. Through SaveOne, I learned how I could forgive myself. I have been completely set free from guilt and shame. I now lead the Salem chapter of SaveOne!”   – Terri
