SHALOM … This word says it all. Today I have something in my life that was missing for many years - PEACE. A year ago I wasn’t doing too well. I was drifting on a sea of teardrops. There was no peace in my life, and every day was a struggle. I was consumed and fueled by anger. Anger at the world and most of all anger at myself. Every day was full of regrets – woulda – coulda- shoulda. Everything seemed hopeless, a dead end, and I had no motivation. Procrastination was my middle name, but in the midst of everything dark, the Lord put my dear friend Calvin on my path with an invitation to join him and get on board at Shalom Ministries. I jumped at the opportunity and I am certainly glad I did. I have been here a year now and have really grown in my relationships with others; but above all, my relationship with Christ. The things I was praying for a year ago are happening in my life today. Hope, vision, healthy relationships and a passion for life. Doors are opening and things I could only dream about before are part of my life today. Yes, coming to Shalom Ministry saved my life literally. Get on board, people, and become part of transforming lives.
