"The Spirituality of Hope:" Visiting Christ Church Charlotte


god has carried me through, and he has taken me out of bondage. and now, it's like i can live. i can live. i can hope. i can dream. i can tell our story. and i can help the next woman that's out there--who felt the same way i felt. and, i am able connect with her on a deeper level because of my experience, strength and hope. and the dream continues. that makes it worth living because i'm a survivor, not a victim. anika

when i started magdalene, i didn't know that my own story had anything to do with why i was drawn to women on the streets. i mean, that's just kind of how our ministry goes, and the idea of the wounded healer that comes out is that your heart is open to compassion when you get a sense of the grace that comes your way...i was going to the streets to meet part of myself and to be about that story having a better ending for a lot of the women. becca
