Nearly eleven years ago after losing my teenage son in a tragic death, I was persuaded to walk with my parents daily at the ROC as a way to heal. While I started my journey with daily evening or lunchtime walks, it was a safe haven from the crazy changes happening in my “new normal life”. I was able to find a warm healthy environment wrapped in Bible verses and friendly faces. From the desk volunteers and their cheerful welcome, to guidance with classes including gym workouts, nutrition and artsy, crafty lessons, I found a setting to refresh and lift me up during a difficult transition.
Most importantly, the ROC opened my heart to trust in the Lord more; make healthy choices; finding a coach to learn and cultivate new habits with and competitions to hold me accountable just when I needed them! The members at the ROC are supportive, friendly, caring and truly interested in one another.
It wasn’t until recently that the ROC Director learned of my personal challenges. Her support and understanding truly inspire me and I hope many others are lucky as to have the good fortune and experience of the ROC and leadership of Sharlena. She is an angel of inspiration in my life.
