How To Break the Cycle

Don't participate in dysfunctional or unhealthy behaviour. Often, such behaviour is commonplace in one's family and the person breaking cycles does so to keep from continuing through future generations. Below are steps anyone right now can take to Break Cycles in your life. 

Step 1. Identify the problem as a problem

Don't push anything under the rug. If it bothers you, seek God and pray about it. 

Step 2. Take Responsibility for the problem

Don't blame another person for your situation.

Step 3. Resolve to change one thing at a time

I suggest picking the smallest thing as it will likely be the easiest to change. 

Step 4. Get help

Get professional help if needed, but definitely seek help from God. 

Step 5. Remove everyone caught up in your cycle

Yes, I just suggested that perhaps you need to stay away from your pessimistic family members or your gossipy friends for a while. You are not abandoning them. Remember, you will never be able to help others until you help yourself. 

Step 6. Fill your mind with positive things

There is one way to do this. Give your life to God.

why we do it

Our Mission

A faith-based, 501(c)(3), non-profit, outreach organization providing leadership, spiritual education, mentorship, accountability, vocational resources and life skills training for the "inner city" of Nashville, TN.

Our Vision

To create a path to break negative cycles that keep kids, individuals and families in the "inner city" community from radically improving their lives. 

About The Founders

Are you stuck in yesterday? Confused about today? No sense of tomorrow? In every family, history repeats itself and creates a generational cycle of patterns which can include depression, alcoholism, drug addiction, abuse, dependency, and abandonment, which can affect you today.

Antuan J. Foxx knows all too well about breaking cycles in his life. Only through the grace of God was he able to break the stronghold of generational cycles in his life. Jesus healed and removed all the pain of his past and filled him with courage, peace and a sense of purpose.

Samantha Pointer Foxx also has dealt with breaking negative cycles in her life. Relying on her relationship with God, she was able to overcome depression, anxiety and procrastination. 

Now the Foxxes want to share that promise with others on how to live each day with freedom in Christ.
