In 2008, my daughter and I came to Grace Centers of Hope in search of a new life. I had been struggling with an addiction to prescription pills and was running away from an abusive marriage. At one of the darkest points in my life, God crossed my path with Terry’s. Her servitude was symbolic to my own personal pursuit at that point in time. We watched a metamorphosis take place in our surroundings as we were simultaneously experiencing the freedom from our former lives. Her visions inspire optimism, comfort, encouragement and reassurance. It is truly an honor to now have the opportunity to give back to an organization that is dear to my heart and to work along side many amazing women that I deeply admire.
Terry and the Enchanted Makeovers crew came to Vista Maria with a mission to make the living spaces for our girls something wonderful and magical. They really did just that. They transformed a hum-drum residiential hall into a brilliant fairy forest; transformed boring rooms into special places of refuge for each of our girls and provided all sorts of amazing gifts like blankets, jewelry boxes and jewelry. It amazing how one person's drive to change the world can impact so many people. I know at Vista Maria Enchanted Makeovers not only made a HUGE difference in the lives of our girls, but also did so with staff, volunteers and every person who enters that building. Enchanted Makeovers is a true gift!
