Special Guest Speaker Connects Heart to Heart…

Today was my first day back after being gone for two weeks! It was so great to see the girls and staff, and to also have my very dear friend, Penny Maxwell, here to speak to our Mercy residents. Penny and her husband, Troy, pastor Freedom House Church in Charlotte, NC. We are so thankful that this church supports us on a monthly basis and that they are a part of every life that is transformed.

The girls were completely and totally captivated as Penny shared her amazing story of how she overcame past sexual abuse from a family member to now being able to be a good wife and mother of three, which she never dreamed would ever be possible! I thought it would be great for you to see a picture of her family.

Penny and her husband Troy not only pastor a church, but Penny is in the process of writing a book about her amazing journey of healing and transformation. A special thanks to Penny for keeping it real -- you really touched the hearts of our girls in a very special way!
