Brief Testimony: I started using drugs at the age of 13, and began using meth at the age of 15. Five years later, I still did not know I had a problem, although I was using daily. When I was introduced to crack cocaine, it did not take me long to realize that I was in real trouble. After a few more years of trying to stop and going deeper in the lifestyle, I walked through the doors of the Columbus Women’s Home and immediately, I encountered Hope. I am so thankful today that God called me into this ministry, and I am honored that he would use me to share that same hope with others.

What do you enjoy most about your role? I find myself saying, “This is one of my favorite things I get to do” to most of the responsibilities I have, but ELP has always been deeply embedded in my heart. I truly enjoy the opportunity to pour into up and coming leaders in the weekly sessions and one-on-one.

Why do you feel that leadership and training are valuable?  I believe that without the experience of leadership, we would not face the pressures of standing for what is right before we step outside the role of a student. Without training, we would not grow beyond where we are at today.
