Experience, Strength and Hope is a story about perseverance and healing. It touches on elements of the humanness in all of us, bringing a motley group of characters together and creating an unanticipated cohesiveness. Each member of this recovery group reveals their brokenness and vulnerability in a heartwarming story of triumph and hope. In their short treatment journey together, these broken spirits find a spark of something in one another that lifts them up and propels them forward. The unsuspecting counselor, Hope Chadwick, finds herself humbled by the growth she personally experiences along the way. Her belief in one young man, Jesse Sheppard, takes her to the depths of her own recovery journey and ignites a passion for her work. For everyone who reads this story, my hope is that you find a bit of yourself in it and a better appreciation for human diversity.
