I came as a mother who had NO support anywhere else.
You sustained me and gave me hope.
You helped me pray when I could not.
I am forever grateful.
Review from Guidestar
I have been a member of Living Hope Ministries since 2001 because it is a safe, wonderful place for healing and growing as a member of the body of Christ. No matter what life's challenges I face daily I know there are people who love me for me and pray for me because they love Yeshua. I get truth when I post my life and all it's rewards and challenges and this is what makes the difference. God has placed me in Living Hope Ministries and I thank Him everyday for doing so.
Living Hope Ministries has been invaluable in helping me deal with the damage of childhood sexual abuse and the subsequent SSA that I developed from it. Being Christian based it allowed me to utilize the spiritual aspect of the healing I desperately needed that secular programs simply did not address. I really needed that as my relationship to God is very important to me. The prayers and encouragement, advice and support I received helped me through some really tough issues in my marriage.
My husband and I came to Living Hope as broken and discouraged parents, to find support for ourselves. Our son had recently come out to us and we did not know where to turn for help or encouragement. Although our son is not interested in being involved in the ministry, it has been a wonderful resource for us to find encouragement, hope and in turn help other Christian parents who are concerned for their children. We have learned how to show love to our son while not endorsing all of his choices. Our hope is in Christ, to do what only He can do to change the heart of our son.
I am so grateful for this ministry! Seven years ago, when I was at the end of my rope, God brought this ministry into my life, and radically changed me. Through Living Hope, I have found that being gay is not my only choice, just because I am attracted to members of the same sex. I may always struggle with these attractions to some extent, but they do not define or rule my life, as they once did. LHM taught my that only Christ can do that (define me). Their online forums and in-house support groups have been essential to my growth as a Believer, and in my understanding of why I have wrestled with what I have. I would highly recommend getting in touch with them if you, or someone you know, is in a similar situation, struggling with their sexuality.
Living Hope is dedicated to change through the healing power of Jesus. In all my time at Living Hope, Jesus has been the center point of this ministry. The constant support of the other women and leaders at in-house and on the online forums, allowing the space to be vulnerable has changed my life and am continually growing because of it. Living Hope has never left me high and dry and has been there when I needed it most.
Living Hope Ministries literally saved my life. I was caught in a addictive cycle that brought me to a place of despair and hopelessness. At that time I shared this hopelessness with members of Living Hope who intervened, notified my wife and got me help. That was six years ago and since that time I have found more than sobriety, but hope and purpose for my life. I have completely turned my life around with the support, encouragement and truth from Living Hope Ministries.
