I am excited to announce that New Life is finally up and running. We are currently accepting young ladies from 18-23 years of age entering the exciting journey of motherhood for the first time. But, don’t fret! New Life also welcomes young mothers who are taking this journey a second time around. I am excited to help guide these young ladies towards reaching their greatest potential.
As of now there are three young ladies participating in the New Life Program. Each young lady is excited about the road ahead of them now that they have found a stable and loving environment to call their home. They are also excited about the classes that are offered because not only can they work towards bettering themselves, they are also able to build a stronger relationship with God. The eagerness they have to succeed as a mother and individual is beyond beautiful. With the help of Star of Hope, I have no doubt these young ladies matriculating through the New Life Program will be restored, uplifted, and highly motivated upon exiting the program.
Although the journey through motherhood is longer than 12 weeks, I am thankful that I have the opportunity to help each of these young ladies prepare for a lifetime of greatness that awaits them. I pray that once this chapter in their life has come to an end and they bring new life into the world they remember that John 16:21 says, "Whenever a woman is in labor she has pain, because her hour has come; but when she gives birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish because of the joy that a child has been born into the world."
