Season 2 Episode 12 | Darcy & Joey Bennett

Valley of Grace

This couple shares about their 18 years together on a journey they never imagined.  Our conversation covers their journey through addiction. This is a RAW conversation, and we are so thankful for their witness.  Addiction is prevalent today, everywhere, and the face of addiction has changed over the last 8 years. During our conversation, they shared their entire story.  They are transparent and how they allow God to use EVERYTHING for His Glory.

During their darkest season, the stigma of addiction had been holding them down, and once they allowed others to know the truth, they found hope in the body of Christ.   As a result, their darkest moments led to the birth of Valley of Grace – an addiction recovery center in 2017.

They purchased their facility property and home in 2020 right as COVID started.  Now, 4 years later, they can house up to 12 men through the 90-day inpatient recovery process.  Clearly, God has had his hands on them both throughout this entire process.  They trusted him completely. Darcy has a heart for the spouses of the addict and realizes she has more to offer.  Again, another glimmer of God’s grace in abundance during the storm.

Currently, the men in the program at Valley of Grace are assembling cross mailings during their ‘work time’.  These messages will be sent to the 7, 906 households in Vancleave, Mississippi where the Home of Grace is located.

Finding Joy in the Sorrow – a 12-week Bible study Darcy has written for the spouses of addicts.

Kokomo Awakening

Daniel 3:18  (The Message) Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered King Nebuchadnezzar, “Your threat means nothing to us. If you throw us in the fire, the God we serve can rescue us from your roaring furnace and anything else you might cook up, O king. But even if he doesn’t, it wouldn’t make a bit of difference, O king. We still wouldn’t serve your gods or worship the gold statue you set up.”
