What is it like to be the Director of Shepherd’s Gate? Well, it is rather like Forrest Gump’s box of chocolates—you never know what you’re gonna get!! I love that!!!
I love coming to work each and every day and being surprised by what is going on in this building! Comedy, tragedy, energy, emergencies, women, children, volunteers, donors, visitors, fun!!!! I love it when I walk through the door and find a former resident, who left when she wasn’t ready, but who has come back, and— gets it right the 2nd time around! I love seeing a former client who just drops by to say, “Hi,” and to let us know that she is now doing well! I love seeing women who say they found God while staying here, or those who say that they decided to re-dedicate their lives to Him, or those who decided to go back to church because of something that they heard here during one of our devotions! I love watching as God abundantly provides for us each day! I love the amazing staff with whom I serve day in and day out! Truly—this is a wonderful place to be! I love that!!
So—I guess I can just sum it all up by saying that I love being the Director of Shepherd’s Gate; I would not want to do anything else!!! I love that God led me to this place!!
