Home of Amazing Grace

Heaven’s Army – Home of Amazing Grace Women’s Discipleship Program, is a 12 month, residential, character- building program. Home of Amazing Grace was begun on October 1st 2015.

We provide a safe place for women who have been victims of sex trafficking, domestic violence, sexual, physical, emotional, and spiritual abuse. Many of these women have turned to drugs and alcohol to relieve their pain and as a result end up in and out of prison and/or jail. For these women, Home of Amazing Grace is a last resort. They lack the resources financially to obtain counseling or other assistance with their issues in the private sector, and they are desperately seeking an end to the cycle of misery that is their lives. Our goal is to restore these women to a life of dignity, respect, and self-worth through discipleship. If you are familiar with abuse and addiction you know that it tends to affect everyone it comes into contact with, not just the families, but co-workers and the community as a whole is affected. Graduates of this program are better women, wives and mothers, able to be a positive influence not only on their families, but also on the community as a whole.

Success Stories

My name is Shellie Lofin and I am 44 years old. At the age of 14, I turned to a life of self destruction as to numb the pain of a childhood secret. I began using drugs and drinking and lost everything including custody of my son. I later became homeless as my addictions led me to depression and an evil darkness which came from everything I took part in that was not of God. In March of 2017, I entered into Heaven ’ s Army Home of Amazing Grace and began to build a relationship with Lord Jesus Christ. Through God’s grace and mercy, I began to realize God was protecting me the whole time! Since finding Jesus, God began to restore my relationships with my children. My testimony will be a sign and wonder to many in my community and will save lives!

“My story is how God can take a shattered life and turn it into something beautiful. I want Him to receive all the honor and glory for the amazing work that He has be- gun in my life. I was sexually molested at 4 years of age, and was blamed for it. My mother attempted suicide when I was about 6 yrs. old these events along with a child- hood spent feeling rejected and unloved. I began drinking at the age of 12, which led to harder drugs. As I got older I got involved in prostitution and began “ committing suicide by lifestyle,” putting myself in situations and around people that I hoped would just put me out of my misery. I failed at everything in life and believed that I was so worthless that even the devil didn’t want me. Now I know that I was so valuable to God that He wouldn’t let the devil have me. I entered the Home of Amazing Grace on December 2, 2015 and now 23 months later God has begun restoring my relation- ship with my children. I’m in my second year of Bible College and was recently made Director of Heaven ’ s Army of Resources. This is only the beginning of an amazing journey that God is taking me on. I can’t wait to see what’s next! ”

“ My name is Debbie Crawford and my redemption date is 3 – 16 – 16. Why is this important? This is the day I laid it all down at the alter for the final time and laid my hurts and addictions over to my Father God. You see, I had been addicted to pain pills and muscle relaxers of and on for over 25 years. I am now 19 months clean! I have a growing relationship with my children and grandchildren, restored relationship with my parents and I am actively involved in Heaven’s Army. I have been re- deemed from the curse of the law, and I won ’ t go back! I live my life for the will of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! ”
