I am a new creation (Eph. 2:15)
I would like to invite you to my baptism on November 20th 2011. It’s at City Life church on Douglas in the Abode building 1330 E. Douglas. It starts at 10:30! This day means a lot to me and I would love to share it with you. I will tell you a brief story of what I went through and how the Lady Bugg House has changed my life. So you can understand why this day means so much to me.
I am renewed in the spirit of my mind (Eph. 4:23)
Before I moved in to the Lady Bugg House I struggled a lot as you probably already know. I got in to drugs, drank all the time, and was VERY boy crazy (which is an understatement). Then I got pregnant with a beautiful baby girl. I was doing so well through my pregnancy, my life was so great. Then I had her and I started falling back in to my old ways and then some. I would hand her off to anyone that would take her while I partied, hung out with guys or friends. I looked at my daughter like she was a mistake, an accident, and a burden. I just wanted my life back. My life was going downhill very fast and no one could stop it or help it. Until I hit rock bottom and I had no place to call home. I jumped from place to place not knowing where I would be staying next. I could not get a job because I had no one to babysit so I had no money. I was just stuck in this huge hole that I could not get out of. Finally one day a friend had gave me a card with a number on it for some help. I called and girl named Amber and she came and gave me food and anything I needed along with a phone number to the Lady Bugg House. I got an interview there and it seemed ok but I was not ready for rules and so on. So I told her thank you but I’ll have to think about all this. She told me to call her and let her know because she only had two spots left. It took me a while to call her back and accept, but I finally did and it has been the best thing that has ever happened to me and my daughter.
I am chosen by You, my Father (Eph.1:14)
Once I moved in to the Lady Bugg House I hated it. I was regretting ever calling her back. There were rules I hated, curfew, and everyone was all about God, God this and God that. After a few weeks things started to change, I wanted to know everything about God. Once I started knowing more about God and how He always will and has loved me I accepted him to be my lord and Savior. I became one of those people that I use to think was so annoying everything became God this and God that. I started seeing life different as well as everything else, things just started becoming easier. So now I look at my daughter as a blessing, a gift from god. I realized I have missed out on so much and I did not want that to happen ever again. I tried time and time again to get my life on track, but I was always doing it for someone else and never myself. So it never worked. I’m finally changing my life to better my daughter and myself. I still have struggles and doubts but knowing my past and how bad it was for me I strive to do my best at being a great person and mother.
I am redeemed through the blood of Jesus (Eph. 1:7)
This place has been the best thing that has ever happened to me. If It wasn’t for this place I would have gotten my daughter taken away and I would have been in jail or even dead. So as you can see this is a huge step for me completely out of my comfort zone. This place has got me so far in such a short amount of time I can’t wait to see where I am in 18 months. So I hope you truly consider coming and supporting me on this very special day. Showing everyone my old has died and my new is being born. Thank you so much for your time and I hope to see you there!
