Kirbie Mallek

I am 38 years old and I’ve spent most of my life living as an alcoholic. During the last 3 years my addiction had taken total control of my life. I couldn’t keep a job, and I ended up losing my house, car and, worst of all, my daughter who I love more than anything in the world. I had finally hit my rock bottom. I had nowhere to turn. Then I entered the GROW DNA program. My life has completely turned around. GROW has helped me in ways I thought were never possible: I have Christian friends who support me; I have learned coping behaviors and tools, so I never have to relapse again; but most importantly I have built a wonderful and strong relationship with God. With God all things are possible. I now have a job, my family back, and am on my way to getting my own house again. GROW has done marvelous things for me. I am totally grateful for this program, I am finally free!

Wow testimony from a Skype client in Wisconsin.......thank you!

Hi, I go by "Chrispy!" I have never met Janet W in person but consider her a DEAR friend. I have just finished studying LOVE IS A CHOICE and discussing it with her. I am SO VERY GLAD I DID! I hope to encourage other women in crisis to trust her with your heart so that you will do the same! I believe that there are times in each of our lives that we need help from someone IMPARTIAL and there is no shame attached to that because as we all know... LIFE IS HARD! Janet had no reason to not help me see my STUFF clearly...those issues that needed to be confronted in my life. NOBODY else offered to be there for me 24/7 during this very difficult time. She helped me sort out that I was also behaving abusively in my relationship with my husband. She was not afraid to tell me what I didn't want to hear.

Janet would tell you that I FOUGHT doing LOVE IS A CHOICE with her because it was not the first time I confronted my "stuff!" I was DESPERATE. I felt ALONE! (I was kids b/c they felt they needed to choose sides...even my best friend jumped ship.)

At age 59 I forced my husband out of the house. Even though our anniversary would not be celebrated on time this year, even though I didn't want a separation, even though I didn't know how to live life without him. We NEEDED to do something different. I suffered from much anxiety and depression and was not sure I would even survive so long of a time without him.

But then there was Janet! Her DEDICATION TO GOD'S CALLING in her life AMAZED me! I had never experienced anyone like her! I could call her day or night!? I believed her. She was THERE FOR ME! Nobody else showed me the VALUE I could not find for myself. Nobody who knew how to help...most importantly...nobody without shame attached. She showed LOVE and ACCEPTANCE consistently above any inconvenience to her...yes I did contact her at home. She was there... while wading through all of my ICK, all my PANIC, all my ANGER, all my GRIEF and then some! She was THERE to make sure I made it through what seemed to be a repetition of my DEEPEST FEAR...being ALONE!

There is NO SHAME in asking for help. There is NO SHAME in needing help! If you don't YOU lose out!  If you don't YOUR KIDS lose out. SOMETHING DIFFERENT HAD TO HAPPEN between us. Those who get help and apply what they learn are HEALTHY, even if people who don't get help point those UGLY STIGMA fingers at us as those who are the only broken ones. PLEASE don't believe the lies hurled at you, even if they come from within yourself. There are those who dedicate their lives to RESCUING HOPE! Janet is one of them. I now see that I AM COURAGEOUS and VALUABLE!  I PRAY YOU CHOOSE TO SEE THAT ABOUT YOURSELF TOO!
