Jennifer's Journey

 
Because of the work God has done through both the program and through the volunteers at Heartisans, I have gained a sense of joy beyond my imagination that I didn’t know existed.
 

I grew up in a very broken home. I lost several friends and family members before I turned 13 and turned to drugs as a way to cope. When I joined the program at SonShine Lighthouse, I learned about God and what he means to me and I professed my faith in the Lord.

Jeremiah 29:11 tells me God has a plan and a purpose for my life and I believe this with my whole heart. 

I came to Heartisans not knowing what to expect but knew I was called to be here. Through the job training program, I’ve developed valuable skills that I will carry with me the rest of my life. Because of the work God has done through both the program and through the volunteers at Heartisans, I have gained a sense of joy beyond my imagination that I didn’t know existed. I am truly grateful and blessed for the opportunities I’ve received because of Heartisans and for all the ways God has provided for me during this time of my life.
