Changing My Legacy

“I love the Lord, for He heard my voice; He heard my cry for mercy. Because He turned His ear to me, I will call on Him as long as I live.”

Psalm 116:1-2

I became homeless in 2014 due to choices I had made. I was an addict who had destroyed all relationships with my family, friends, and children – my life was a mess with no hope in sight.

When I came to Agape Home at the Lighthouse Mission, I was lost, scared, broken, and emotionally and physically drowned. I had no self-confidence or self-esteem. I felt that I had no self-worth.

Agape Home offered me guidance and encouraging words, and the staff is full of compassion and kindness. I started to believe in myself and in God; that there was hope with faith.

I have given my life to God. He is changing my legacy every day – I was an addict, and now have been clean and sober for four years. I was broken, and now I’m healing. I was homeless, and now we have secure housing as of January 14, 2018. I am also employed. I am proud to say I have strong relationships with my family, friends, and community.

One of the many things I will truly be grateful to Agape for is the support they gave me during my journey of getting custody of my grandson, Jason. He is now two years old. Jason is my pride and joy and the love of my life. At Agape, we say, “It takes a village to raise a child.”

Thank you Lighthouse Mission donors! Our lives would not be the same without you. You have forever put an imprint on our hearts. I am truly grateful and blessed.
