If I walk in God’s light, anything is possible to overcome any emotional defects I have.” -Darrol McMurray, Folsom

With every certificate I’ve received for completing self-help courses and with every certificate I receive, I gain more confidence, self-esteem and sense of accomplishment … The course helped me get to know the Why? I did the things I did. It helped me question myself and realize that I’ve been doing things wrong all along.” -David Ariaz, Pelican Bay
