"Before attending the WoR, I was on a crash course with disaster. My marriage and family were bearing the weight of my abuse! Processing the experience makes me thankful the facilitators care so much! I felt like they guided me personally off the tracks of destruction! The deep dark hole of depression and self loathing have very little power over me now! Get to the next WoR, you'll leave the past where it belongs!"--Hope Springs alumnus, October, 2013 Registration Costs Fees start at $695 for early registration.
