All Hope Restored is a huge part of my life and of the lives of the victims and survivors we have been blessed to help these last 6 yrs. This journey started for me 9 years ago, I became a Victim's Advocate at the DA's Office in Colorado Springs and the rest as they say is history. Helping women in their journey of healing, finding hope and to do so focused on our Lord Jesus Christ is what sets All Hope apart from other Organizations. AHR continues to grow and is being blessed more and more everyday! We only have God to thank for that, God is good all the time, all the time God is good!
Hello ladies! First, let me congratulate you for taking these first difficult steps on your journey towards recovery. Not long ago I was in the same place many of you are right now, and I understand the fear and hesitation you are feeling. I remember feeling lost, confused, and completely unaware of the resources available as I tried to heal and take my life back. That is why my official platform as the reigning Ms. New York North America 2018 is Domestic Violence Awareness, and why I am so proud to be a part of All Hope Restored; I am empowered to share my story with others, to inspire victims and survivors to seek the light at the end of the tunnel and to know that, no matter what, they are worthy of love and success. We deserve to live every one of our dreams. “I am the Daughter of a King who is not moved by this world, for my God is with me and goes before me. I do not fear, because I am His.”
“So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand” – Isaiah 41:10
Domestic Violence is a very complex topic that holds multiple layers. It impacts every aspect of your life and turns life as you knew it upside down, sending an array of emotions streaming throughout the body: fear, hopeless, inability to trust, lack of motivation and self-esteem. One of the most important aspects we, as survivors, are stripped of is the loss in spiritual faith. Cast upon that fear and let us bring upon you a restored sense of hope and faith through AHR.
AHR is here to help you peel back those layers that Domestic Violence holds and truly help you understand facts and how it has impacted you personally. Once you understand Domestic Violence you can find a healthy and spiritual path to Recovery.
“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Jesus Christ”. – Philipians 44:7
I have personally travelled a road of Domestic Violence and I can tell you that you can fight this battle and win. You can allow yourself to heal and become stronger than you ever thought possible. The first step to a solid recovery is truly wanting it. The road to recovery will not be easy, but it will be worth it. We are here to help guide you through that journey. For out of the darkness comes eternal light.
“Heal me, O Lord, and I will be healed; save me and I will be saved, for you are the one I praise” – Jeremiah 17:14
