When I got to Wounded Refuge I was withdrawn. I felt scared, I didn’t trust anybody. All I had was emotion, like I had no reason for existing. For me it’s about getting the tools I didn’t have, yet needed. It’s about gaining trust. This group of women embraced me and became family. Now I know who I am, I am the daughter of the King. Now I have the strength to no longer allow anybody to take away my power. I do have power, and it is up to me who I give it to. Today I stand tall, hold my head high and look people in the eye.
When I came to Wounded Refuge, I didn’t realize I could have a voice. I knew nothing about boundaries, or how I should be treated as a woman. By going to the meetings and interacting with the other woman I started to grow. The studies and one-on-one time with Pam gave me my identity, worth, and ability to set boundaries. I now have a voice! I am able to see my purpose and embrace it with joy. I am now able to help other woman overcome their fears because of what I have learned in Wounded Refuge, Inc.
Thank you Wounded Refuge, Inc.,
Coming to Wounded Refuge was the biggest and best step I have ever taken towards healing myself and the relationships with those I love.
I am learning to quiet the voices from my past that tell me "I'm no good" and replacing them with positive affirmations and the love from my Lord and Savior. The women I have met have strengthened me, without them and Pam, I could not have made this journey. Pam has given me a safe place to learn, heal and grow. I know I have a long road ahead of me ~ but now I have the tools and the knowledge to change my future.
