Seventeen months ago, I was in a very dark place.
My husband struggles with several personality disorders and PTSD. He is unable to
maintain a job and we were sinking fast. We lost our home along with my in-home business. Although I knew God would take care of
me, I was at my wits’ end with what to do. I was physically, emotionally, and mentally drained.
When I went to a clinic for knee pain, my depression was so apparent the doctor insisted I speak with a therapist to focus on my mental
well-being. I heard about the Center for Women’s Ministries at church, so I decided to seek help there. I drug my feet at first because
my family needed me, but I knew God was telling me that I had to get well in order to meet the needs of those who depend on me.
Through this ministry and prayerful staff, I not only came through the months of struggles, but I am closer to God now and see Him
more as a Father than just an overseer. I have learned through the (peer) counseling and homework positive applications of Biblical
truths like healthy boundaries and making goals to strengthen my faith in ways I never dreamed possible. I realize even Jesus had
healthy boundaries with His own disciples who fell short. I now feel free of the bondage of not only my sin, but the misguided
expectations of others. I no longer enable unhealthy behaviors in others or fear what might happen if I don’t let others control me.
Seeking counsel from those who are grounded in Christ is a very healthy thing to do. I know God put this ministry here and I thank Him
for these women who are so willing to help others find His truths and apply them to life on this planet. I pray abundant blessings on
each of them and their ministry.
