“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” - Jeremiah 29:11
New Hope Counseling had its outward beginning in 2004 as New Hope Ministry, a support ministry for adult women survivors of sexual abuse. But the seed was truly planted in 1992 when I began healing from my own childhood sexual abuse. This has been a painful and difficult process but, during this time, I came to have a heart knowledge of the Lord and His love for me. He was fully present with me and empowered me to heal, grow, and change. He never left me, and, praise be to God, He never will!
I had been a stay-at-home mom for many years and was unsure what would come next. But God had a plan! As I began to heal, a desire grew to help others who struggle with sexual abuse. So, I returned to school in 2001; first at Cumberland County College, then on to Thomas Edison State College for my bachelor’s degree. In May, 2010 I graduated from Wilmington University with my master’s degree in community counseling! It was a wonderful day and a great affirmation of God’s love and purpose for me.

Praise be to God for He has shown His wonderful love to me!! - Nancy
