A New York girls journey

I came to the Grace House completely broken, traumatized and a lack of purpose for my life. Alcohol and drugs had a complete grip on me, it was the only comfort I had to numb any pain or emotions I did not want to feel. Comfort soon turned into complete chaos and then my life became a dark hole that I didn’t see any hope of getting out of. I didnt know how to live, I didnt know how to stay sober and i didnt have a relationship with God. That has all completely changed, one of the main reasons is because I surrendered and I was ready to make a change. I needed the time at the Grace House to take a step back, focus on myself and become willing to do the next right thing. It has taught me to feel my emotions and work through them with the support of girls going through simlilar struggles. It has taught me how to stand on my own 2 feet and be held accountable for my actions. It has given me a smooth transition into society by taking baby steps and being patient and having faith that God will guide me through my doubts and fears. I had no car for years and I was able to buy myself one while living in the Grace house. I was loved on from the minute i walked through the door and through the whole process. Not having to be alone again is one of my biggest gains because I was alone for a long time. I am so grateful for this place and will be forever grateful for the many blessings I have received while living in the Grace house. I now have the tools I need to live a happy, sober life along with friendships that I could have never dreamed of having. Linda is an incredible woman with such a pure heart for woman wanting a better life and I give thanks to her, her husband Marc and Victoria for always leading me down the right path. I LOVE GRACE HOUSE!
