In all honestly I was very skeptical as to what to expect but from the first meeting, I was so glad I had made the decision to attend. I wish more people would have the courage to check out the Come Alive program because the results were life-changing - I just had to invest in the process. I now have a sense of peace that I've never experienced through a greater understanding of myself and my relationships. I feel free ... wow!
