I grew up in a single parent family home just two streets over from where Restoring Hope Center is located. My loving mother worked faithfully at a job that despite her best efforts could not provide all we needed. Many nights I cried myself to sleep because I was hungry. Like many in the community I can remember how I would say, "One day my life will be different."
Well, that one day came. By God's grace I graduated from high school and bible college. I first began in ministry through evangelism and then in pastoral work. Through a series of circumstances I left the ministry and worked my way into store management in the grocery industry. God was so faithful to bless me with great success. I had no idea while I was working in the grocery business that God was equipping me with the skill sets I would need as Executive Director of Restoring Hope Center.
Today, I have the joy of serving the Lord by serving others. Our Lord truly is the God of second chances and the One who can, indeed, restore hope.
