Ariel: ‘God has truly restored me’


I’ve been with the Having the Courage to Change women’s recovery program a little over 2 years.

The staff definitely challenged me, every day. I’ve had some really tough times. They loved on me in ways that I’ve never been loved on before. And it was a tough love. It was something that I needed. They have a really good heart for us.

Being patient, having time alone with God and knowing my worth has been the most important thing to me. It’s beautiful.

For a long time I felt so alone. And I know that God has never left me. It’s just so powerful the love He has for me.

I do see myself one day starting a youth ministry. Just being a servant of God. I can share my testimony with others who have suffered addiction and trauma. Show them that there is hope, because everybody needs that.

Today, I love myself. I didn’t love myself before. God has truly restored me from the inside out. I look at life differently, and I’m forever grateful.

The people that have supported City Gospel Mission, they’re just the most wonderful people. I’ve met some of them.

I just thank you so much for what you’ve done for this ministry. You are definitely people of God, and we love you so much and appreciate you.
