Before Mercy I was living on auto pilot. I had no hope and no sense of purpose. I struggled with anorexia, bulimia, and depression and I was so consumed by fear that I did not want to live. I felt like I had to be perfect and I thought I could survive just by looking good on the outside. On the inside, I was desperate and knew God must have more for me. I found Mercy on the internet and decided to apply.
Since coming to Mercy, God has set me free! His love and grace have allowed me to live in the freedom to fail, grow, and be humbled because He is more then enough for me. All the things I was afraid of before don’t scare me anymore because I know my God is bigger than all of them.
After graduation, I am moving home and applying to colleges. Someday, I hope to get married, have babies, and a house in the country with a swing on the front porch! To all of the staff – Thank you! I love and appreciate you all. The examples you set helped me to see what a godly woman looks like.
