OVERCOMER'S LIFE, INC
Reaching people, Teaching people, Connecting people, and CHANGING LIVES!
Overcomer's Life, Inc. was born from a desire to create a place for the growing numbers of people in our communities who are seeking to recover from addictions, reintegrate from prison, and find success in their life after losing all hope for their future. Our goal is to change lives by demonstrating genuine compassion, teaching practical life skills, and making meaningful personal connections.
As we understand the struggles of people who are recovering, it is clear that we have to also attend to their basic first level of needs (food, shelter, housing) before they can reach a place of self-transformation. We realize that the provision of tangible day-to-day services is an effective accompaniment to the spiritual counseling that our program participants need, and that such basic services are necessary in order for people who are recovering from addiction to stay on the clean path. Realizing that there is very little help available in our communities (the cities of Austell, Douglasville, Hiram, Lithia Springs, Mableton, and Powder Springs), we pull in resources from volunteers to assist in many ways.
Our volunteers currently dedicate themselves making referrals, picking up clients on the streets, and responding to their calls whenever and with whatever they face at that moment.

Prisoner to Preacher
Jeff spent years in and out of jail. His life was consumed with drugs and alcohol. Today Jeff has a beautiful family, a loving church, and a strong testimony about how God changed his life. Here is Jeff telling others about Jesus at the same jail he was once a prisoner at.
Testimony from Alicia, Jeff's wife
Yes, thats a camper. Seven years ago we were in our first year of being clean from drugs and had just gotten our daughter back. We felt we had to get away from our former way of living, including the house we lived in. We were surrounded by memories and temptations. Something had to change.
It was hard. We only had enough money to buy a camper and park it in my mother-in-law's driveway. Looking at this picture reminds me to be thankful. I could tell you about a hundred things in my life that are going wrong right now, but this one thing is something I'm so grateful for. God took us from that camper in a driveway to a house where we pay our own home owner's insurance and property taxes. God helped us mend our relationship with our children and so much more. We couldn't have done any of this without God.
Thank you Jesus. 🙌 You bless us daily! If He can bring us this far He can and will do anything you want. Anything you ask for, as long as you believe.
