Hi, my name is Heather Larson. I have a precious three year old son named Jacob and we live in the Chelsea Community.
Before attending Liberty, I was happily married for over 12 years. We were preparing to welcome our son into our lives. We had battled many years with infertility and finally we were going to be parents. We began looking for a church home and started visiting Liberty. The people were very courteous and genuine. Life was good.
In 2013, my marriage fell apart. I was devastated and looking for answers. I contacted the church office inquiring of counseling. I met with Alan Kurkendall, Associate Pastor, and immediately knew I was in the right place. The encouragement, love, and sound biblical counseling I received allowed me to walk through the journey I was facing. I quickly enrolled in the Divorce Care program offered, and was able to begin my new journey towards being a single mom.
Since that time, I rededicated my life to the Lord. Jacob is flourishing in the Preschool program on Sunday, and I have created friendships with others, single and married, through the services offered especially through the Small Group/Life Group settings. I currently facilitate a Wednesday night Hope & Help for the Single Mom bible study where I am able to walk with others and offer encouragement, prayer, and support to those who face the same day to day struggles. It has not been easy yet I know I would not have made it this far without Liberty.
I would say to anyone going through a time in their life where they are searching for answers or wondering if anyone cares, Liberty does. The warmth and genuine kindness I experienced was refreshing and provided me a refuge where I could heal. Life is difficult; through the sound biblical teaching from Pastor Tim and others, I have come to a place of hope and healing for me and my son and look forward to the future in Christ.
