“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9
I will live my life of freedom to the utmost. I will honor my mind, body and spirit by maintaining a relations hip with God. I dedicate myself to completing Justin’s Place Recovery Program. I will honor this commitment by bettering my life for myself, my family, and my community here today. I seek to serve Christ and ask His guidance upon my life day by day, so I can shine as a light of hope i n a dark world. By honoring this commitment, I am building a life free of harmful substances and a future dedicated to serving others and giving back the gift of freedom, that was so graciously extended to me.
ABOUT JUSTIN’S PLACE
Justin’s Place is named in honor of Justin Holecek. Justin graduated from St. John Neumann High School in 1997, and from the University of Florida in 2002. He was an intelligent young man with a wonderful personality, but suffered from the disease of alcoholism. After years of abuse, Justin died on September 18, 2009 at the age of 30. It is our prayer that Justin’s Place will continue to provide recovery in a structured, spiritual manner to people who reach out with a strong desire for a new beginning and a life free of addiction.
