ABOUT UNRELENTING GRACE MINISTRIES
There is a growing number of women who are struggling with addiction/alcoholism in the US. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA):
2 in 5 women drink alcohol.
4 million women are heavy drinkers.
2.5 million women are alcohol-dependent.
1 in 10 pregnant women drinks alcohol, and
15.8 million women have used illicit drugs in the past year.
Most of the time, drinking or drug use is a way to dull pain, or try to forget past abuse, or other hurts. By sharing
personal experiences of abuse, abandonment, alcoholism and addiction, and how these issues were overcome, we are helping to address these issues, and reduce the stigma and shame that women alcoholics/addicts may face.
By addressing the issue of women and abuse or addiction, it gives women the freedom to not only speak aloud their issues, but also find support and help. It is comforting to hear that other people have been abused, or struggle with addiction. It empowers other women to speak out and share their struggles, and to help each other. It enables women to have the same freedom as men when it comes to realizing there is a problem, being able to voice that issue, and seeking help, which will strengthen families and communities.
Spreading the spark of hope to the desperate and hopeless, and fanning the flame of faith to the lost and broken.
Lamentations 3:22-23 says, “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” The purpose of Unrelenting Grace Ministries is to minister to those people in need of a second chance, both through written word and spoken word.
