Testimonials from Some of Our Girls

“I really pushed my parents over the edge when I overdosed on pills not once, not twice, but three times with 35 pills. They had enough and did not know where to turn. That’s when they brought me to Lakeland. Two months later, Jesus Christ intervened and said, “Get ready family! I am the Great Physician and I will heal your daughter and bind up her wounds!” God changed me from the inside out that day and has set me free from all the bondage that I was enslaved in.”


“Since coming to Lakeland, my life has completely changed. I owe all my thanks to the power of God. I came hopeless, cut off from my family and unaware of a savior. I had no respect for anyone but now through God I can love and respect others and myself. I also have established a great relationship with my family.”


“I lived my life the only way I knew how — to deny my problems and pretend to be happy. Now, I realize how much I am worth and nothing can take that away from me. I am so blessed for the amazing and powerful opportunity to change my life and live for God. I am so excited to go out and start living for Him.”


“I thought no one could ever understand and bring me out of the endless suffering I was in. At Lakeland, God showed me His amazing grace and opened up my heart to let others in to help. I now know it is not all about me, but helping others, showing love, forgiveness and accepting others for who they are.”


“Being here has showed me that people can love me and care about me. God has opened up my eyes to the grace and mercy He gives me. Now that I am set free and He has broken my chains, I can run into His arms and accept His embrace.”


“I was addicted to money and sex. I forgot how to tell the truth. When God came into my heart at Lakeland He softened my heart and gave me emotion. I have learned how to love. He has restored my relationship with my family. I am a new creation because of His grace.”


“Before, I only lived for every moment I could get high. I cared nothing about others, myself or my future. I knew I would not ever survive the world I was living in and knew I had to change. Lakeland Girls introduced to me true love, forgiveness and hope Jesus Christ had to offer. I have my life back and I am so grateful.”


“I was numb, dirty and selfish before coming here. I was constantly running from every problem I faced and I was fazed by nothing. Thankfully, God snatched me out of that dead-end life and brought me here. Through His mercy and love I was spared. I thank God for my life. I thank God for the staff at Lakeland for opening my eyes.”


“Coming here has made me the girl that I have always wanted to be. God is restoring every relationship with my family members. God is amazing and I am so thankful.”


“After years of being hurt and used, I lost myself. I became numb to life and pushed everyone that loved me away. I did not care about myself, my family or my future. I felt like no one would ever love me. But then at Lakeland I came to know Christ and now I see myself from a whole new perspective. Life has a new meaning and my family means the world to me. I am so thankful for God’s forgiving grace and for a new life that I have found here.”


We can also help you in your search for alcohol rehabilitation centers, equine therapy centers, boarding high schools or teenage boarding schools. Our Christian boarding school program helps misbehaving girls who are at risk and having behavioral issues such as anxiety, who are oppositional, with reactive attachment disorders or avoidant personality disorder. Military schools for girls are probably not the best option for your troubled teen girl. Many military schools for girls won’t enroll girls who have a history of problems. When dealing with troubled teens, there are many types of residential schools which can help troubled girls. Not all Christian boarding schools work with struggling teenagers, but Lakelnad does. This program specifically helps troubled teenagers -- such progams are typically referred to as therapeutic boarding schools, but Lakeland is not licensed as a therapeutic boarding school, so it is much less costly. The Christian boarding school provides Bible-centered mentoring for at-risk teens, unlike other alternative schools and therapeutic boarding schools schools that do not have a Christian emphasis.
