"I am worth more! Self-worth is something I've really struggled with, I thought I was too dirty and used to be loved, forgiven and so much more. But, then God started talking to me about what I'm really worth. Now I know; I am worth more than my past, I am worth more than a victim, I am worth more than my reputation, I am worth being forgiven, I am worth being treated as a person, I am worth celebrating, I am worth being loved, I am worth what God has planned for me!"
"At Mercy, God gently removed the masks that I constantly hid behind and he broke down the wall and barriers that I had built up to protect myself.
The unconditional love of the Mercy staff and their unfailing support and Godly wisdom taught me that I need not protect
myself, for God alone is my protection. As I began to believe that He truly loved me, I found myself able to love myself."
"I am so grateful for every part of the journey, I am grateful for the foundation that was built during that time because it's one that is sustaining me daily. I look back and smile because I am unrecognisable to the girl I was. Are things perfect? No way! But the journey continues and there is always more. I look back and smile at the things I have overcome, and the opportunities I have been given. I have conquered fears and though along the way I have had times where I have tripped up, I keep getting back up."
"Mercy is not a magic wand. It’s hard work and requires a willingness to let God in. For anyone wanting to apply to Mercy UK, I would say do it!
Doing something like Mercy is never easy, but I have found it completely worth it. God loves you and is waiting for you to
allow him full access within you!"
"I am so so grateful to you all - honestly, I can't put into words how much it means that you would partner with a mother you don't know to contend for my daughter!"
