When I first found out I was pregnant, I was devastated. I was scared, angry, bitter, and lost. The CPC helped me regain myself. They helped me sort through my fears and concerns by giving me the support that I needed when my life felt so shaken.
They connected me with a group called Embrace Grace which is a group for single, expectant moms. In that group, women who also had unexpected pregnancies were able to support one another. That support meant the world to me. Embrace Grace helped me tremendously on this journey that I once thought I could not travel.
While in the group, I realized the need of fully giving my life to Christ. I was baptized at The Pointe Church by my leader Betty Hodge. After giving my life to Christ, everything changed for me. My faith in God is now stronger than it has ever been.
I am still connected to the church and Embrace Grace. This semester I am helping lead a group.
I have been balancing a job, college, and raising my 2 children but being on this journey with God has me looking for a deeper purpose. I want to make a difference in the lives of women who can’t find their purpose, feel alone, or just need support because I know that there are so many women like myself who don’t have it, are afraid to ask for it , or simply just don’t know where to find it.
I am so thankful that God lead me to the CPC and rescued me from a life that wasn’t meant for me. God has big plans for me and my children. I love that the CPC and my church leaders are still walking this journey out with me.
