A divine encounter at the bus station in Charlotte changed Lisa’s life forever.

Weary from years of homelessness and sleeping on friends’ couches, she had come to Charlotte to seek help from her son. Over the years, she had suffered from depression and even attempted suicide. An alcohol addiction led her down a dangerous path – one that eventually landed her in a hospital fighting for her life. In that hospital room, Lisa had an awakening. She knew she needed a change in her life or she wouldn’t make it. To further complicate things, Lisa was, and is, the caretaker of a daughter with special needs.
