Born to Be Free
Born To Be Free, Cornerstone Television’s innovative and inspirational series on overcoming addictions, is a series of programs featuring testimonies, historical scenarios, and practical help for those seeking freedom from all types of addictive behavior.
Through these thirteen episodes, we will present solid, foundational principles that can help those struggling to overcome ANY addiction. We’ll discuss these principles with our panel of recovering addicts from several different walks of life. We’ll also bring you many incredible stories of people who have discovered the secret to overcoming their life-controlling issues. Whether struggling with drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, pornography, gambling, shopping, over-eating, dieting, arrogance, selfishness, low self-esteem, or some other compulsion — they all found hope in the midst of their pain.
While this series alone isn’t the answer to overcoming addictions, it can bring awareness to the issues controlling your life and point you in the right direction to find help.
