“When I first found out I was pregnant with my second child, an overwhelming sense of terror took hold of me. I was mortified that I was so young and unmarried and pregnant. The decisions I was facing put me on an emotional roller coaster.
Every day I thought about abortion. My life was a mess. I was in and out of work and my life had no stability.
Then a friend told me about Helping Hands Pregnancy Resource Center. I scheduled an appointment but was too ashamed to even show up. Gradually I came to the realization that I couldn’t live this way anymore. My problems were too big for me. So I picked up my Bible and started to read.
Because of that, I began to understand the life our Father really had planned for me. He showed me my worth, and that my life could be much simpler than what I had made it.
Because of that, I realized that it was okay to accept that I could no longer do this on my own and that I needed the Lord’s help. He blessed me with the courage to walk through the door of Helping Hands, where I became a new born Christian.
Because of that, I resolved to serve the Lord at all times. I started attending church and my work and housing situations began to stabilize. I was actually given the opportunity to become part of the Helping Hands ministry, as the Client Advocate Coordinator.
Finally, I see that the Lord has worked wonders in my life beyond my wildest imagination. It began with His Word, and the courage to walk through the doors of Helping Hands and ask for help.
Our ministry is here to serve, to show the love of Jesus to others, to come alongside families so they know they aren’t alone, so they glimpse what God has planned for them. We are here to support, help and minister. We serve our Heavenly Father as we walk the path with clients in their journey to find and follow Christ.” – Alexa, Client
