Most people, when they find success, usually work to make their lives easier, not harder. They look to surround themselves with other successful people, not the down and the out. Those of us who have received a second chance in life through Heartland Recovery are grateful that Charlie Sharpe wasn’t “most people”.

Charlie and Laurie Sharpe saw the need and desperation of those struggling with addiction who were falling through the cracks of our society. And they did something about it; they gave everything. Instead of just donating money and walking away, Charlie and Laurie chose to live and be in community with those who needed it the most. They cried with the hurting, opened their home and hearts to those in need, and built a city of Refuge.

This Thanksgiving, we are grateful for and say thank you to Charlie and Laurie Sharpe… and to all those who have helped build and shape the Heartland community throughout the years.

“And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:15-17
