Sponsor a Beauty for Ashes FAMILY
I came to Beauty for Ashes wounded and hopelessly bound by chains of addiction. Separated from my child and searching for how to free us both from those chains I did something I wasn't sure would work; I prayed. God heard my cries and brought us to BFA where I have found freedom in every way. Wounds have healed into scars that show God's goodness; as the chains that once bound me fall I see the beauty of his unending grace. I am seeking a future in studying God's Word and giving back to the ministry that helped save my life and my child's life. My pain has been repurposed for his Glory and I am committed to help others come to know and experience the goodness and love of Jesus Christ.
For a long time I had denied needing help... even denied needing God. Life had brought me to a point where I was completely overwhelmed and self-destructive. My children were becoming collateral damage to my chaotic life, and I knew I needed a change. I was blessed with the opportunity to come to BFA, where I am able to focus on myself, my children, and above all my relationship with God in order to heal from the past and look forward to a brighter future for my family.
Before coming to BFA my life was completely unmanageable. I was a single mother who lost all sight of myself but even worse, lost sight of God. I am truly blessed to be able to fully surrender and build on my relationships with my children and God. I can't wait to see what the future hold for us here at Beauty for Ashes.
I'm thankful to be at BFA to not only grow closer in my walk with God but also to be a better person and mother. I cherish the values and morals BFA stands for and want to learn how to incorporate them in my daily life. By God's provisions and hard work I have been genuinely and greatly blessed with the opportunity to be here. I fully intend to take advantage of the tools that are at my disposal and to use this blessing to learn, grow and become the woman and mother God has always intended for me to be.
I was pregnant and determined to get to BFA and without the help of God and Him listening to my prayers every night I don't know what I would have done. I'm very new to the Bible but me just believing in Him has already provided so much. I gave birth to my healthy son on the right path, being the mother I should be. I have messed up a lot of things in my life but I've let that go and have started over. Now that I have the right help I need nothing can stop me from being the mother I am now and from being a better person for my family. Not even addiction. Thanks to the staff at BFA for giving me the hope that I never carried before. Thank you, Jesus, for opening the door to this great opportunity for me to change my life.
What brought me here is that I was at the worst point in my addiction that I've ever been. I was so miserable , lonely, and depressed. I realized I had truly hit rock bottom. Once I was arrested and discovered I was pregnant in jail I knew it was time to really make a change. That's when I finally admitted to myself that I was disgusted with my behavior and did not want to continue living that way. I made the decision to come to BFA and I couldn't be happier.
I came to BFA broken, lost and stuck. Being separated from my children, I started asking for help and praying. God gave me so many confirmations that BFA was where I needed to be to grow in my relationship with the Lord and my children. To be free from addiction through freedom in Christ.
