I was sexually and physically abused at a young age. I developed an eating disorder as a result and was throwing up 15 to 30 times a day. My life was out of control and I didn’t want to think or feel so I drank alcohol constantly. I knew I needed help, but I didn’t have enough money for treatment anywhere. I heard about Mercy from a counselor who told me it was free, so I decided to apply.
During my time at Mercy, God completely changed me. I’ve learned that there are no limits to what God can do and I need to continually hand things over to Him. He is more amazing than I could ever imagine.
After graduation, I’m going back to school to major in youth and preaching ministry. I will also be teaching gymnastics. I am so happy I finally found the answers I have been searching for. Mercy helped me understand that God is the answer!
