Hi. My name is Sylvia Blakely, Founder of Arise Daughter Ministry, and I will be your main point of contact on your journey. I am beyond thrilled to extend my hand and heart to you as you move forward on your path toward complete freedom and a vibrant new life! As you lean into this next phase of healing I want you to know that you have a host of women who are willing to partner with you. The support of women who have gone through your struggles and have made it to the other side is a crucial support network; one that we pray will eventually lead you into being a part of that support system for others.
A little about me and how I got to this place might help...I made the decision for abortion during the summer of my 20th year of life. I was held captive by that decision, even justifying it by working at Planned Parenthood for a time until I asked for God's forgiveness in 2001. It was another 20 years before I embraced a bible study titled, "Forgiven and Set Free" through Healing Grace Ministry in 2020 that I was finally transformed and given my freedom papers. That's basically 40 years of hiding in the shadows as so many of you can relate to I am sure.
Now that I am free, my hearts desire is to help other people experience that same freedom. God's word for you, through the lens of my experience is: "Arise daughter from the ashes! God has a mighty work to do in you and through you!" There is beauty on the other side because God said so! (Isaiah 61:3). It is time to shake off any remaining ashes and walk in your new found freedom; With Arise Daughter, you will not have to walk alone.
What is your story? Before you share, be aware that people other than me will be able to read it. Much love
