Program: Wholeness & Counseling
At Collide, we believe that God uses every day chicks to do amazing things. He meets us exactly where we’re at – in our doubt, our monotonous routines, our pain, our apathy, and our mess – and collides with us in a way that leaves us forever changed. We’ve been amazed as He’s redeemed our brokenness and empowered women in our community and beyond to walk in confidence of their identity as beloved daughters.
We’d love to introduce you to one of those women, Aleia, and share a piece of her story of colliding with Jesus.
Counseling was always something I knew I needed, but I never had the encouragement to start. Collide changed that for me. All within three months my seven-year relationship ended, I lost a loved one, I moved to Bellingham, and I got a new job. On top of that I have been in the trenches of physical pain and limitations from a car accident since 2015. Through all of this I found myself broken in so many places, but counseling showed me that with time I could be made new again. Words cannot express how thankful I am to Collide and to my counselor for showing me my value, that I am good enough, and that stepping forward and asking for help is a strength. There is no shame in seeking counseling. God has so much freedom in store for all of us.
One of our favorite things in the world is the diversity of stories we get to hear about how God meets individual people in deeply personal ways. We’d love to hear your story of colliding with Jesus, too! Tell us all about it at firstname.lastname@example.org.
