I am Christy…I live in Dallas, Texas. Can I tell you how fired up I am about this ministry? This ministry which is based in Tyler, Texas has the potential to help unwed pregnant mothers all around the Country! How great is that? I have been involved in the fundraising part of The Magdalene Home and while doing this I came across a verse that really hit home to me: “Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west… Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth.” – Isaiah 43:5-6. I feel like the Lord was talking to me! I have been saying over and over again that everyone can be part of this ministry no matter where you live. The Magdalene Home will eventually be helping women from the east and to the west! So, a little about my story. My Mom had me at the age of seventeen. Seventeen years YOUNG. She did marry my father, but it didn’t last. I have thought about how things could have been different for her if she had this kind of resource available to her. She raised me and did the best that she could do…but let’s face it…she struggled emotionally and financially. She was a kid raising a kid! I imagine what she could have accomplished if she was being nurtured by a place like The Magdalene Home. A place that would provide her with spiritual guidance, life skills, and academic preparation if desired. You see, my Mom went back to school after having me. She did graduate high school. She went on to obtain her Bachelor’s degree in her 40’s and her Master’s degree at the age of 50. While that is a HUGE accomplishment, I can’t help but wonder what could have been for her and me if she could have done these things much earlier in life. The Magdalene Home will help these women do just that! Do you want to make a difference? If so inquire about how you can volunteer or better yet donate. The Magdalene Home is a 501c(3) organization that relies solely on the generous donations of people.
