I had an abortion at the age of 15, that was a very traumatic experience for me. I had no idea of the side effects of an ABORTION.
I had my 1st child at 17 my 2nd child at 19. I was a very young mom of two children Keith Andre & Kevin Ardis. I remember being hopeless and afraid.
In 1989 I met Troy Churchill Sr. we dated for a couple of years and had a son. We named him Troy Jr. When Troy Jr was 6 months we got married. I don’t think we knew what we were getting into. I'm now a wife and a mother of 3 sons at the age of 21.and I still haven’t dealt with my abortion experience.
At the age of 24, I made a terrible mistake. My husband and I separated for 7 years. During the seven years I found myself homeless and living with family. That was a very dark time for me!!!!!!
I wasn't sure what to do or where to go. I began going to church and asked the Lord for forgiveness. I was able to get back on section 8. And got a job. If it wasn’t for family and friends praying for me and speaking positive words of encouragement, I'm not sure where I would be. In 2013 I finally got the help I needed for my Abortion. I still had unforgiveness in my heart. I am now able to say I am Forgiven and set FREE!!!!!
I’m now employed at BsideU for life, formally known as A Women's Choice Resource Center where I counsel women in Crisis Pregnancy. I’m also one of the facilitators for our Bible Study Forgiven and set FREE!!!
A year ago the Lord laid it on my heart heavy to open a maternity home for pregnant moms and their children. It's so sad to hear a women say she is going to abort her baby because she is homeless. It hurts my heart and I asked the Lord what can I do to help these women? He reminded me of Matthew West song "Do Something " I'm not sure if you've heard of him or even heard that song you should listen to it.
I asked my husband what he thought about it and he immediately said Baby I’m here to help you do this! We reached out to Angie Renfro with Kristy Love Foundation. She said with NO hesitation YES I would be honored to help you Beautiful. She has truly been a Blessing to us.
We are so proud to announce in 2018 we will open Churchill's House of Hope: Helping Others Pursue Excellence through Jesus Christ! Hosea 2:15
We want moms to know they are not alone and we are here to support, encourage and provide housing for them and their children.
To God be the Glory!!!
