Restoring women's health and wellness through spiritual relationship building and support services.
A network of empowerment avenues from biblical perspectives to fulfill freedom and purpose in each women to reach her potential.
Have you ever wondered, "What is my purpose in life?"
At Hadassah Harvest, we invest in the health and wellness of women. Through relationship building collectively, we offer a forum of support, utilizing our life experiences, knowledge, talents, and skills for the benefit of sisterhood in the community. We are a faith-based ministry dedicated to developing our spiritual health and healing so we can be our best selves. Best mothers, sisters, wife and friend, whatever that may be for you. Emotionally healthy, spiritually fit.
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul and with all thy mind and with all thy strength. Mark 12:30
The first step to repair a damaged soul (mind, will and emotion) we must love God with all our heart (emotion), mind and strength (will).
The second is this, Thou shalt love they neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. Mark 12:31 We practice this through, community service. Service is another avenue of soul restoration.
There are many ways to serve. You can pick one or join us as we work together in the area of Motel Ministry. Individuals and families living temporary sheltered homeless. A large percentage of women are facing this life challenge.
What is sheltered homeless?
Individuals or families:
Paying rent week to week in Extended Stay Motels long term
Living in their vehicles
Living with someone -unable to pay rent or acquire rental in their name
We provide mentorship, resources and local community support service referrals. For women and children fleeing domestic violence, we use our resources to connect families to a safe environment.
So what if you don't love yourself enough to help somone else? Well, God loves you and we hope to show you how He sees you. We believe with access to the right resources and support, we can become empowered as women to gain the confidence, know his love and begin to fulfill our destiny potential.
God has a purpose for your life. He works all things, including your life according to his purposes. Our choices, our attitudes and our actions determine the course. We have to "choose" to do things, say things and live things that give us joy and a sense of purpose. Together we work to identify those decisions and work on a plan for spiritual and physical health recovery.
"Purposeful and Intentional"
Who am I?
I would say when answering the call of the Lord often we feel we are not ready or don't deserve the honor. Sometimes you can say to yourself who am I to lead a ministry? That's when you hear the gentle voice of the Lord saying, " I lead, you follow". Amen. Yes Lord.
My testimony begins at birth. "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." Jeremiah 1:5 NIV. Wow! Before I was born God had a plan! We can read that scripture many times but not fully absorb the full impact of how powerful that statement is.
My parents are immigrants to this country. That alone set my life on a path unexpected. Growing up was not easy. As a child I felt God if he existed didn't love me or didn't know me else he wouldn't have let me be persecuted and troubled. I knew nothing of what it meant to be a woman much less a woman of God. I was hurt, broken, abused and used. By age 15, I was a teen-age mother. During my life journey God always sent someone to intercede on my behalf. In the midst I could not see anything, but now looking back I can clearly see his hand guiding me, and protecting me.
September 25, 2016 on top of a mountain in Tennessee I gave my life back to the Lord. He surrounded me with Christian women who loved on me, prayed for me, encouraged me and never judged me. That's so important isn't it? Often we are afraid to be vulnerable with each other because of the fear of judgement. Often women, in particular can tear down instead of lifting each other up. I am so thankful those sisters modeled Christlike love and sisterhood.
See your destiny calls you like a magnet you will be drawn to certain passions. August of 2018, God began to visit me in dreams. The dreams drive me to explore Him and His ways even more. September, 2018, during Wednesday night bible study on the book of Esther, I felt instantly connected to Hadassah the name mentioned one time in the book.
God took Hadassah and raised her to a new level and gave her a new name. Esther. I believe your life journey, all the things you seem naturally attracted to; books, movies, colors, seasons are divinely entwined to your purpose in life. Or as some would say your destiny which is your contribution to society.
My purpose is to walk in faith with you, to inspire others to follow Jesus Christ, not through words or deeds but Compassion and Love. Love is sacrifice, Love is a choice. Love is Christ. Let us make that choice to surrender to Him, to live our lives as a sacrifice unto Him, as a representation of Him, we are the Light.
I am Salt.
