You were at a boarding school? Did you get to interact with anybody? What did the home do to you? Seriously, these are some questions that i face in society today. Sometimes i wonder why people would think of such questions.Then i begin to realize,they are asking questions about the unknown. i mean, if it was the known, people wouldn't have to ask questions ,right? So that is why i wanted to clarify for those who wonder, what happened there? For me it started five years ago, on a plane to Missouri on March 22,2007. i was a distraught, violent child that could care less if the world caught on fire. The authority placed in my life was between my freedom and what i wanted to do in life, so i needed to get them out of my way. That is why i was sent to the home. For one year i tried to apply the world's philosopy,"fake it till you make it." After one year of a masked personality, i basically threw all cation to the wind and let all hellfire brake loose. There was never a day within that year that i was not in trouble, literally. It got so bad that when staff members heard my name that they would cring, and i was proud of it... or so i say. Inside i was hurting, trying to grasp a peace that i could not attain. My life seemed meaningless, empty and void of purpose.I started hearing of a God that is always there for you ... but can He accept me? During the next year i was constantly battling with that question. I wanted to be an atheist,and blame him for all my problems. Never did I realize that the person that I was blaming was the only One that could save me. Finally,one night the topic of church shootings came up. We were told that local churches were being targeted and that people have been loosing lives in these events. For me i knew that even though i attended a church, it don't mean anything. I tried acting religious, but inside I constantly thought dirty,cussed, and you name it. I knew that if I died that night, i would go to hell, a non-stop flight. That night I accepted Christ into my heart. Not because i was scared out of Hell, but I wanted a relationship with Someone that truly cares, Someone that will always be there when no one else is there. As I close this, if you are saying that I was made to say this, think again. If you haven't been through what I have been through, what you say is only your opinion, not factual. My life has been changed because of Christ and my decision to follow Him. Has yours?

I could never explain all of the stuff that Circle of Hope did for me. They taught me about Jesus. I didn't get saved there, but the things that they taught me scared me. I didn't want to go to hell. I wanted to get my life straight. Iwanted to work for the Lord, to have a realtionship with him. My mom just died a month ago. It's been really hard on me. I still don't know why he did that but,no matter what,I know that he has a plan for everything.

I arrived at COH on September 25, 2010. I thought my life was going to be over. Little did I know what God was going to bring to me in life here. I tried faking my Christianity, but soon to find out there was no way I could put up a front anymore. I tried and tried and was really getting tired of being called a fake even though I knew it was true. It wasn't until April 2010 did I get saved. I knew that if I didn't get saved I was going to go to Hell. On April 10, 2010 I accepted Christ as my Savior. I think God so much for having my mom send me to COH. I thank the many lessons that I learned there while I was gone. It has given me a chance to live a life I know I should live for God. Many of the girls there are should be very proud at where their life is headed now, then where it was headed before.

Saturday my family and i took some pizza to the circle of hope girls, Being back there was a great blessing to see some of the girls and how far they have come to seeing the new girls and seeing that they to will get the help that i received. Next month on the 24th i wil be home one year. And how i excited i am to be home but yet knowing that circle of hope was my hope the my future. Mrs Steph and Bro. House are so special and i am so very thankful for each opportunity i have to see or speak with them. Seeing you all has brought many memories back all of which are mostly good except of when i had my HEAD in my Butt. Thank you once again for all you guys are doing and know that my family and i are always praying for you.

This ministry was an incredible step on my journey to having a close and personal relationship with my Lord and Saviour. I arrived at COH in Novermber 2009 and stayed until August 2010. I never knew I could learn so much in 10 months. Brother House and Mrs Stephanie truly have a desire to see young ladies find the Lord. I am so thankful for my experience here. I pray for you every day! Thank you for being such lasting impressions on my life.

I went to Circle of Hope on Oct. 5 2010 and tried to fake my Christianity the whole way through, but even though I can fake others here on earth I can NEVER fake God. He knew I was still lost and He began to work in my life a few months after I arrived. I wanted nothing to do with God so every time I felt Him pressing on my heart in the area of my salvation, I pushed Him off and tried to forget about it. After 6 months of being there I realized my life would always be incomplete without Christ in it. On March 22, 2011 I set my will aside and talked to Mrs. Steph about my salvation and that night I got Saved. There have still been times that I struggle with doing God's will but ever time I do I have no greater joy than knowing that He's in control. Because of this ministry and the Householders, I have been given a second chance to live my life for the LORD. I am so thankful for Bro. House and Mrs. Steph for all they did for me and continue to do for the girls that are still there. I was able to come home on June 2, 2012 and I could begin to explain how thankful I am for the time I had there to grow into the person God wants me to be. I know I'm not there yet, but because of what I learned there I strive every day to be the godly young lady God planned fro me to be. Thank you and have a wonderful day. Love you bunches!
