Learned Behaviors

“When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me” (1 Corinthians 13:11)

One thing we all have in common is learned behaviors, whether good or bad, from our family or from life itself that we have all picked up lessons from in our past.  Some of these things have seemed helpful in the past but are now a stumbling block for growth.

 Many of our families here at the Samaritan Inn have faced various traumas and have developed coping mechanisms, an identity, and a worldview that threatens their progress and their relationship with God and others. Part of what we do here at the Samaritan Inn, along with teaching life skills, is to uncover the roots that produce these unhealthy fruits.  Through counseling and classes, we begin to see not only changed behaviors but also heart transformation through new understanding.

“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness” (2 Peter 1:3).

By fostering a relationship with God, lives are changed.  Would you consider helping us impact the lives of the families we serve? Together, we can help them put their past behind them and step into the newness of life with Christ.  If you would like to support the Samaritan Inn with your time, talent, or treasure please reach out to
