Heather's Journey

Their program seemed too good to be true…but, to me, that’s how God works! 

REFERRING AGENCY: Rehabilitation Family Center

For as long as I can remember, I put my emotions and my addictions before anything else. Eventually, I hit rock bottom. I didn’t have a relationship with God. I was in a bad place full of so much pain. After giving birth to my second daughter, I was still incomplete. A few months later, I was faced with the decision to get healthy and mother my child or be alone.

While at the Rehabilitation Family Center, I was given a beautiful Bible that I found myself reading more and more every evening. The more I read about Jesus, the more my attitude began to transform. My guilt and shame and loneliness were replaced with self-worth, purpose, and compassion. 

Shortly after leaving the Rehabilitation Family Center, I heard about Heartisans Marketplace from my recovery coach and God told me Heartisans is where he wanted me. Since I started at Heartisans, I have regained my self-esteem, my career goals have been elevated, and I’ve enrolled back into Kilgore College. I see the example set by the women at Heartisans that I can live every day with God at the forefront of everything I do all day long. I would have never gone back to school or thought I could have a career had it not been for Heartisans. Their program seemed too good to be true…but, to me, that’s how God works!
