A Love Story
Hello, my name is Shirley and I’ve been clean for 11 years. I was on drugs for over 13 years, roaming the streets of Phillips Highway. During that dark time, I completely lost myself and everything that I loved. On Valentine’s Day 2007, I met Jan and Kathleen while they were doing outreach ministry on Phillips Highway. Many times thereafter, they kept stopping me to give me encouraging words, toiletries, etc. They showed me more love than I could imagine. Every day and night, as I walked the streets, all I could think about was Jan and Kathleen telling me my life was far better than this. At that point, I was just about ready to get myself together. Although it took a while, Jan and Kathleen continued to encourage me. Once I finally surrendered to the help offered, I made a promise to God: that if he can change me wholeheartedly, that I would never go back to the drugs or streets. 

Life has been tough and I have remained firm in my word and faith. I’m now a Certified Department Manager at my job. I have been present for both of my older sons and got to attend their high school graduations, and I am still raising my 10-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son. I have been taking public transportation for all these years that I have been clean and have taken my children wherever they needed to be on a bus.  

All by His Amazing Grace, lots of sacrifice and hard work, I just purchased my first car ever in my life!!! Grace Ministry has played a big part in my recovery process and I thank God for placing them in my life. In closing, I just want to say whatever you put your mind to, you have got to stick with it no matter what. God will see you through. I love you all and thank you Grace Ministry from the bottom of my heart.
