Answering God’s Call

When I moved into Hannah House, I could not have dreamed the Lord would be preparing me for a position in ministry and leadership. I was only five months sober and had reached rock bottom. But, the one thing I’ve learned is this—the Lord shines His brightest in our darkest places. While living at Hannah House, I saw firsthand how rough the road to recovery is, and I learned that each situation requires mercy and grace. The women who showed me so much love gave me more than they realized. Because of them, I am capable of loving others well. My time at the Hannah House also unearthed a desire to know more about God and his Word. I started diving deep into bible studies, one of which was on discipleship. The lesson taught me how vital it is to spread the Good News of the Gospel to everyone. I now am on staff with CLDI and serve as the Supervisor for the Hannah House. As I look back, I can see that my experiences were all in His greater plan. I am humbled by the opportunity to minister to the women at the Hannah House. My prayer is that each of these women has a chance to know and experience God in the same way that I have. When I accepted this role, I had a lot of fear. But, when the Lord calls you, you drop everything and go! I know with certainty that the Lord is and always will be BY MY SIDE!

“‘Come, follow me,’ Jesus said, ‘and I will send you out to fish for people.’ At once they left their nets and followed him.” Matthew 4:19-20
