This former client's story reminds us all that NOTHING is too hard for God!
I am JoEllen, aka Lighthouse Christian Services Cleaning Service! Yes, I do it as a volunteer because I believe in the mission of Lighthouse. When I am cleaning, I pray for the counselors and clients who meet in the rooms I vacuum. And, I pray for the office staff, too, who work feverishly to provide counseling to all.
Volunteering is also my expression of gratitude for the years Lighthouse poured into my own healing. When I most needed Christian counseling, I was unable to pay the full amount and benefited from the sliding scale fee. Today I am in a better place both financially and emotionally and want to do all I can to make healing an answer to prayer for other desperate, wounded people.
During my healing at Lighthouse, God re-birthed a hidden talent, and I have used that creative gift to chronicle my healing through the hope of Jesus Christ. My art-print testimony of God's healing is featured at http://www.cocooncreationsgallery-joellen.blogspot.com/ My most recent addition to my collection is "Releasing the Pain". Please visit and let me know what you think. If you know of others who are victims of abuse, tell them to visit too.
Many survivors have been touched by the prints and have ordered them. You can read their comments on the blog as well. And above all join me in my support of Lighthouse Christian Services as they continue to "bring hope to troubled lives."
