This program is a spiritual program using the Bible to help teens to process and discuss some of life's toughest issues that they are experiencing. This curriculum is comprised of 13 lessons. Within these lessons, students commit to take 8 steps that will help them grow spiritually. For example, one step is for them to admit that they can't do life on their own and that they need God and others. Because these commitments take 13 weeks, these weeks are referred to as a journey. At times the journey will be bumpy and at times it will be smooth. But the most important part is to stay committed to the road they've begun--the road to healing. Life Hurts God Heals touches on real life issues, hurts and pains and it gives participants the tools they need to heal.

In addition, anger can be linked to problems such as emotional and physical abuse, and other negative behavior. This group is for men to learn about their anger, the impact it has on relationships.
