Hélène is a talented song writer, poet, author and communicator and her passion and joy shine through in all she does. It has been my privilege to walk alongside Helene as she experienced healing while participating in the programs offered at Celebrate Recovery. She has shared her story of overcoming life’s challenges on numerous occasions and it is always a source of encouragement and hope for others. She truly is a remarkable woman and above all her belief in our Lord Jesus Christ, her rescuer and restorer. ~ Carol Keating, Southern BC Representative for Celebrate Recovery
