"I once was lost but now I am found"
Andrea: A Woman of Hope
Amazing Grace how Sweet the Sound that saves a wretch like me, I once was lost but now I am found was blind but now I see.
This morning I got to sit with Andrea as a smile brimmed across her face, She will be graduating from the Acres of Hope program this Saturday.
She has worked hard, fought the good fight, and Acres is so proud of her.
She was asked what she would like to tell other mothers who may need to come to Acres of Hope, her response was:
"This is a good program, it's definitely life changing, It's worth the good fight."
She was asked what was the most important thing she has learned, she said,
"I've learned to find myself and believe in me. I have built a strong relationship with God.
Get her G.E.D.
Attend Sierra College
Go into a career of social work with Foster Youth or Juvenile kids.
"I want to help kids who were like me", she said.
At the end, I asked one final question, "What do you think the theme quote of your life is", she replied, "I once was lost but now I am found".
I am thankful for Andrea, her good fight, that she is found, and moving toward a hopeful tomorrow. Please pray for her and her family as she journey's into the next beautiful, Hopeful phase of her life.
Andrea is a Woman of Hope.
