Do you long to enjoy a purposeful, progressive life? Do you look forward to grow in life to a place where you are proud of your own decisions?
Catherine Kabaki says,
"I was not taking responsibility of my actions that costed me a lot of rare opportunities in my life. Now, I am more proactive about the decisions I make, I have learned how to evaluate the options I have and live life that is more fulfilling and satisfying."
I learned about alabastron from a stranger. I met this lady outside a psychiatrist’s office, and we began taking about life and she suggested the program to me. She spoke so passionately about the program and how it saved her and restored her marriage. A few weeks later a coworker sent me a poster on WhatsApp. I purposed to attend the first class; the interesting part is it coincided with my mom’s nine year anniversary since her death.

I had the power all along; all I needed was to let God direct my steps. I began standing up for my self more at work and with my friends.
