The first week at Teen Challenge has an amended schedule where, instead of going on work detail, the new student will be in Orientation with Bro. Bob and learning the curriculum, rules, daily life at Teen Challenge, etc. After that the student will follow the typical routine outlined below…
6:00am – Wake up
6:30am – Devotions
7:00am – Breakfast and cleaning
8:00am – Morning Chapel
9:00am – Group Studies (Lecture class)
10:00am – Personal Studies (Individual curriculum)
11:45am – Lunch
12:30pm – Work Detail Begins
4:30pm – Work Detail Ends
5:00pm – Dinner
7:00pm – Study Hall
8:00pm – Evening Chapel
10:00pm – Lights out
While this schedule can feel intimidating before entering the program, it quickly becomes the norm of life and flows smoothly.

Love, Tolerate, Despise
This is the roller coaster I am on when I look in the mirror, when I look at my heart, and when I look at what I think about. I'm in this class "Love and Accepting Myself" but I honestly feel more hate and despise for myself than anything. I do have hope and have felt the peace of loving myself in brief moments in time, but after the damage I have done to myself and others it is a difficult thing to accomplish.
Learning to love myself, struggles and all, may very well be a lifelong journey. Thank you all for your prayers; it is a day a time when the subject of loving myself comes up. I appreciate everyone who makes this place possible for me to begin this journey.
