“The things you’re going through today do not have to be the things you’ll go through tomorrow.” Mending Fences

Day-to-day life is hard. Period. But if you’re struggling with issues like depression, anxiety, self-esteem, or addictions, it’s even harder and sometimes seeking help is one of the hardest steps to take. Where do you turn? Is there a place where you’ll be accepted and not judged? Yes, there is.

“Mending Fences,” a support group with no judgments. Each Tuesday and Thursday at 6pm, folks meet at Sit’em Down Cowboy Church – Davis Ranch Arena, 721 Dial Road – for one-hour sessions. Saturday’s meetings are at noon with bar-b-que, guest speakers, music, and testimonies. Group leader, Larry Henson, offers this from last week’s sessions, “Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest random act of kindness, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Help another across the stream and you to will find yourself on the other side. God, help me open my heart to the full potential of every moment in my life.”

You can find peace and purpose in your life through “Mending Fences.” No matter your struggle, there is hope and in Big Sandy it’s just a short drive down a dirt road to Sit’em Down Cowboy Church.
