Hi... hope your having a good evening.
Yesterday Jeff and I celebrated 2 months of sobriety! AMAZING!
When you change your priorities, Put GOD first, your family second and all else third!
We came a long way but have a long way to go. We owe you so many thanks!!! We want to write about Jeff’s experience in treatment and encourage others... that when you recommend a person to go they get going.
Just trying to get the right words so they really touch somebody.
4 weeks until that baby is due then I’m ready to really work on myself.
We added a new addition to our family for our sobriety success her name is “HOPE” Thanks for your journey Vance... thanks for changing our lives where others would have gave up you didn’t!
After losing my job, my girlfriend and almost my life, hope was all but a distant memory. I remember the feeling vividly when Vance walked into my room. My mindset shifted. I knew I was in the presence of someone special, who meant me no harm and could help me see something I was unable to see in myself. Having trudged the road of addiction for over a decade, I had encountered plenty of interventionists, motivational speakers and otherwise perceived enlightened individuals. Vance was different, I could tell he truly believed in what he was saying, that he lived it. His words were not from a textbook or a weekend seminar at the Holiday Inn. They were the truth; his truth... My truth. From that day forward, I understood what I was capable of had nothing to do with my past failures. I understood that there was hope for me. The happiness was achievable. That my life was not over, but was about to begin.
I want to Thank U so Much just for taking the time to talk to me.....
There's so many people out there and i'm just one broken soul, who isn't anyone special i truly appreciate you just giving me hope. The road has been so long and so hard and just the few minutes we spoke made me feel like maybe there is life out there for me still to live? Maybe i can do some good and give my kids a reason they'd be proud of me.
I really feel to heal i need to help others but can barely help myself at this point! I cant continue to live feeling this way! I just wont make it! I could go on and on but i know your busy so ill just leave it here and hope maybe there is a miracle waiting for me and somehow i will find some happiness in all this pain?
Looking forward to hearing from u!!
I am the proud mother of the young man you spoke with in Colorado Springs and was featured near the end of the NFL film.
His name is Jesse and today is day 105 of his sobriety!
God bless you and thank you for helping and inspiring so many people.
Thanks Vance for your help, landed safely in Chicago yesterday! Thanks for telling me about your story and giving me hope in my recovery! Keep your head up! Love ya bro!
Hope all is well. My name is Sal Viscount. I went through treatment back in June. I'm currently living in the Boynton Beach area and just celebrating 8 months of sobriety. I'm reaching out to thank you for all the kind words you offered me during my stay. I would love to come up and visit and the patients sometime soon. Recovery has been an amazing journey so far and I would love to share my experience with the patients and explain what has worked for me.
Hi I'm Brandons mom. I just wanted you to know that Brandon was inspired by your story. One of his most coveted possessions coming home as the card you gave him. Thank you so much for the help you and the rest of the staff gave my son. Its good to see his smile again. By the way, he's into football now. That's just a bonus for us. Cheer a little for the Seahawks! Anita Springer.
Vance, Last year in November I was in treatment. I attended all of your meetings that you spoke in, and I have to say you helped me a lot. I am proud to say that I am almost 11 months clean after a set back, but things are going really great I would love to talk to you but in any case I just wanted to stop by, show you some love, and let you know you inspired me. Thank You Vance Cody Payne
Hey Vance, how do I send you a friend request? I have a lot of clients who struggle with addiction issues so I like to read your FB with your advice. Thank you and blessings!! Regina
I wanted to say thank you again for the training you gave our team yesterday. You have definitely found your second calling as a speaker, your delivery was perfect and you kept everyone engaged!
