A Piece of My Heart
March 22, 2011

Have you ever put a puzzle together? If you have, you know that the picture on the outside of the box is a long way from the inside. Although there are many pieces broken apart, they are meant to become that beautiful picture.

Through 25 years of ministry, I have had the opportunity to minister to women whose lives are like that puzzle. Every woman has the potential to be that beautiful picture but are in need of help putting the pieces together.

About five years ago, after trying to help numerous women break the cycle, the Lord gave me the vision for the ministry. I had found it to be a difficult task for women to change if their situations and surroundings didn't. God's Word states it plainly. "Do not be misled; bad company corrupts good character" (1 Cor. 15:33, NIV).

God laid it upon my heart to give women a place to work on putting those puzzle pieces together; a place without the influences of what put them in the need of help. Our mission is to see that every woman who comes through our doors be given the opportunity and tools to be all God has meant for them to be. I believe every woman has a God-given destiny and resaon for being on this earth. The House that Mercy Built is here to take women with life-controlling issues on a life-changing journey.
