I needed Hope - A Testimony from Elizabeth

Elizabeth’s Story:

Life was a happy tune for Elizabeth. …

I was a sheltered child, nurtured by a doting dad and a stay-at-home mom. My family was blessed with a housekeeper, cook and lake house. I enjoyed piano, ballet lessons and birthday parties befitting a princess.

But then the music began to fade.…

But at age six, I learned that my parents were not my parents. They were my aunt and uncle who just lost a six-year custody battle over me. A judge ordered them to return me to my impoverished, biological family. The same day I heard this news, I was dropped off to live with my new family.

And soon she had no song.…

That day was the beginning of my battle with fear and anxiety. About a year later, my biological father, a pedophile, handed me over to be sexually molested by his best friend. The following year, my biological mother committed suicide. In high school, I began relating to boys sexually. Pregnant at 16, I had an abortion.

Then the Lord gave her a new song of hope.…

In college, I surrendered my life to Christ. But the healing began through the relationships and resources of Hope For The Heart. The Biblical Counseling Keys and trade books changed my life. Little by little, the biblical principles in these resources began traveling from my head to my heart. God used this ministry to forever change my life."

Elizabeth now serves as a director in the pastoral care ministry of a San Antonio megachurch. She is also a life coach, mentor and conference speaker. The words of Psalm 40:3 resonate in Elizabeth’s story, “He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.”

Now you can be an instrumental part in giving people a new song of hope.
