Freedom for Women through the Bible
My name is Carrie. This is my story…
I have been physically, emotionally and mentally abused from as far back as I can remember. I was cruelly mistreated and sexually debased by the men in my life, including family members, for so long that abuse actually seemed normal.
All I really wanted was to be loved. I felt this need so strongly that, at the age of 15, I had my first daughter and moved in with a 24 year old man. We soon married and had a second child. Even though I was now a mother of two, the prostitution and partying didn’t stop. I had multiple miscarriages and abortions. My self-esteem was shot and I felt utterly alone. I attempted suicide many times and became an alcoholic and a heavy drug user.
But today I am free from this life of torment and I thank God for His mercy. I know now that He has always been with me. He even saved my marriage and we will soon celebrate over two decades together. We are blessed with a precious grandson and two wonderful daughters. I am also honoured that God has chosen me, along with a team of women from JC’s NightLight, to go into strip clubs and reach out by sharing God’s Word and showing His love to the women who toil there.
