Review for Bountiful Harvest Ministries Inc, Alexandria, IN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My life was locked in fear, depression and anger. I survived many things as a child, but at a price. I felt worthless, insignificant, alone, and ashamed. It was my intention to end my life when I came to BFA. But, I was pulled out of my overwhelming despair by the dedication, compassion and love of the people at BFA. And, the classes of Boundaries, Safe People and Anxiety & Depression have given me the structure that I desperately needed.

Most of all, the staff at BFA helped me to embrace a new life with my Lord and Savior. I had carried my Bible since a teenager but I never read it. They opened my eyes and heart.

I now look forward to every day that God gives me to learn and grow as a person. I believe that God planted me at Beauty for Ashes for a reason, besides saving my life. I am more open now to all that is waiting for me.

I arrived in June and the people that run the home and the volunteers who hold the classes were instrumental in helping me to come out of the darkest time of my life. The classes and bible studies that were offered, opened my eyes, mind and heart. They helped me to face my past, head on and encouraged me every day to battle many things that almost destroyed fear, anger and depression.

I received great benefit from the Anxiety & Depression class, as well as Safe People and Boundaries. It is my belief that these classes, if taught in school, would have guided me to a different life. These classes helped me to overcome loss, low self-esteem and the abuse that I endured as a child.

I owe a great deal to Jan Busby, Sharon Renfro, Brittany Sievers, Kathy G. and all of the volunteers and class teachers that showed me that I deserved to look toward the future, which is something that I never did in my life.

Most of all, I wish to thank Beauty for Ashes for showing me the way to know my Lord and Savior. I am truly blessed to have been brought to this home. I believe that God placed me here so that I could get the help that I needed.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I know first hand what Beauty for ashes can do for someone who needs a safe, loving and nurturing place to heal.They offer more than just a place to sleep,they offer guidance where knowledge is for whoever yearns to need it. I also, found that I could know the Father and Son,Jesus threw the prayers and bible studies that I chose. I believe that Beauty For Ashes saved my life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would add a class called "Anger Management" . I would also, like to start a book essay class.
