Then she begins to talk about what Gracepoint means to her. "When I first arrived to Gracepoint I was lost, broken, afraid & alone. And it was here where I learned that God was healing me by the process of continuously unraveling everything and putting it back together." She talks about how Gracepoint also provides support, love and encouragement and she talks about how much her children love the church as well. She talks about how she has learned how to continuously seek the Lord in everything she does and she reveals that because of him she is where she is today.
