I grew up in Oxford House in a loving family. My parents taught my siblings and me well, sharing values of life, hard work, respect and responsibility. They were protective but not controlling and only wanted the best for us.


At age 14 I was ripped from my family and sent to a residential school. When I arrived in the small plane with a few other kids, the first thing I heard was a stern voice saying, “Line up, you northern people.” Our long beautiful hair was cut, we had to shower with strangers, were made to feel as if we were nothing, and shamed into submission. I was lonely, scared and angry.

Four years later I came back home to be with my family. It felt good to be home, but I was full of anger and resentment. My mom told my sister and me that we were not allowed to go out the first evening but needed to attend a church service being held in our living room. I was aware of something different about her but did not know she had accepted the Lord into her heart the previous year.

Later that night, when my sister and I were in our room, we felt the presence of God and started crying. I knew then that He loved me just as I was and two weeks later accepted Jesus as my Saviour. When my journey with Christ began, I knew if I wanted full peace and freedom in Him I needed to forgive the people who hurt me as a teen.

It took me a long time to forgive the past and to cast every shame and wrongdoing into the depths of the ocean in Jesus’ name. I can truly say I am happy and free, no longer living in anger but with the love that only Christ can bring. I cling to Philippians 1:6 (page 294), “I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”
