The dove represents the peace, freedom and serenity that God has shared with me here at the House of Peace.
These gifts have allowed me to experience joy and tenderness again, like a desert that has received rain and is transforming into a garden of fresh flowers. New seeds are at the bottom and they are sprouting. I feel alive again. M.A.
My life has been confusing, complicated and very stressed out. Living each day with a person that I was afraid of due to his aggressive attitude made me an ill humored, defensive person. I worried much about our lives and started to feel physically weak. I found out that I have Lupus. After a lot of struggle, I made the decision to leave with my children because I wanted to change the way our lives were. My children have been my motor and my strength and they gave me the courage to leave. M.A.
The House of Peace has been a blessing for my children and me. I don’t have any family here. But at the House of Peace I have encountered wonderful people that have offered me their hearts, support, and tolerance. Because of this experience, I have learned that God is in my life and is guiding me with His hand. I want to move forward. I want to always keep the peace and hope I found here at the House of Peace. M.A.
