When Riley began her time with Hillcrest, she had thousands of dollars worth of debt accumulated and she struggled with her sense of self-worth. In the program, her generosity, helpfulness, caring attitude, kindness, organization, and responsibility quickly stood out. Riley was constantly meeting the needs of those around her and wanted to ensure that they were having positive experiences.
Now, Riley is in a career where she is able to care for other people. Introspection, having been her biggest challenge coming into the program, has become something she is able to do well to assess what she needs on a personal level. Riley has discovered much about who she is and what her goals for the future are. She shares her heart openly and loves the people around her deeply.
We celebrate Riley for making it in and out of the program in less than 90 days. For over 100 days of freedom from self-harm and for sobriety. For learning to follow a budget, receiving needed dental work, and paying off all of her debt in phenomenal timing while saving thousands of dollars! Next, Riley will move to Wyoming and continue her journey there.
“I want to thank everybody that’s been a part of this program and that contributes to this program in any way. When I remember moving in, it was in the middle of the snowstorm that we got right before Christmas. I remember the weather was how I felt. I was this sad little girl and now I’m this big girl that’s moving to Wyoming. I want to thank everybody that’s been a part of this journey with me. Thank you”. – Riley.
Encouragement for Riley – Ephesians 2:10 –
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago”.
