Hi my name is Jasmine.  Hope Cottage has helped me and my kids in so many ways.  Being here has filled our hearts, minds and souls.  It has given us the time and rest that we longed for and needed for so many years.
We feel loved here, we feel safe.  The heavy weight of the world is no longer on our shoulders within these doors!  Nothing makes me happier than to see my babies live better and be happy.

I still have my battles I face here and there, but the Ladies here at Hope Cottage always remind me that I am doing well and to give myself some grace.  They tell me that I am loved, to take one day at a time and never give up!  That makes me feel good inside knowing I have many who believe in me.
The main thing Hope Cottage has helped me with was getting closer to the Lord and finding myself again.  Nobody has taught me about Jesus like this before and I’m glad that I am finding my way back to Him.  I give thanks to the Lord and to these beautiful Ladies for bringing me back to God.  Without this place I don’t know where I would be, so I am eternally grateful.

Hope Cottage has helped me get back in school and has helped me to focus more on what’s important, like being able to spend more time with my kids and with myself to gain my confidence back.

The Discipleship Program is a very wonderful Program.  It really helps with the soul and mind to reconnect with our Savior, Jesus Christ.  I am fairly new to the Program and have yet to see what’s in store, but so far I have grown spiritually and mentally and learned so much about Jesus Christ that I didn’t know before.

My sisters here are completely amazing – so loving and helpful when it comes to me being confused about anything.  I’ve never in my life had such support.  Hopefully this Program will teach me more and I’ll be able to grow more.
