A Warrior's Story
We are blessed to see how God is moving in our organization -- from community partnerships to blessing others, including Latosha. Read Latosha's story.
My name is Latosha. I am honored to be able to share my story of freedom and hope about how Grace Ministry has impacted my life.
For over 20 years I was in the grips of alcoholism, which led me down the pathway of a very dark lifestyle. I was in some serious legal problems that left me feeling hopeless. By the grace of God, my federal attorney introduced me to a safe, sober living home called Awakenings House. Once I arrived, I was introduced to Grace Ministry of Helping Hands. They provided me with rental assistance for several months while I stayed at Awakenings House. They also helped me at Christmas time to provide gifts for my 13-year-old daughter. I had no idea that such a love even existed. I have grown in my relationship with God and feel like a child of God.
I am now ten months sober, have a job and self-sufficient through my own contributions. I’ve been given the opportunity to give back through serving others at Awakenings House as the van driver for the house. I drive other women where they need to be, whether it be to work, appointments or recovery meetings.
Thank you Grace Ministry and thank you God for giving me this priceless gift of your love!
