"Every single one of us knows someone battling this issue—our friends, our neighbors, our children, our spouses, and if we're honest . . . ourselves. If we don't take on the problem together, we're never going to find freedom. That's why everyone would benefit from attending the Truth and Lies conference." --Sam Holm, Associate Pastor of Teaching
