There's More to My Story
God has plans for Charlene
"They said I was born drunk, they had to pump the alcohol out of my system when I was born. I was about 3 pounds, I was so small I fit in a shoebox. They had to keep me in the hospital, they didn’t think I was going to make it."
"I had a happy childhood but suffered abuse at a very young age, which caused me to lose trust in friends and family. At Mel Trotter Ministries, I discovered that there is more to my story and that I was made in the image of God." - Charlene

Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has redeemed from trouble.– Psalm 107:2
There's More to My Story
I'm Steve and there's more to my story.
I was making 6 figures with my flourishing chiropractic practice, I was married and had a great relationship with my wife and kids. Then I injured my wrist. That was my manhood and I couldn't handle it.
My relationship with my family has been restored thanks to God's love.
I'm Alberta and there's more to my story.
I am a preacher’s daughter and came from a large, loving family that taught me responsibility at an early age. I attended college and raised two children. But 20 years in an abusive marriage chipped away at that foundation. I ended up divorced and lost my home and children all while suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
I learned who I am as a child of God.
I'm Daniel and there's more to my story.
I lived on the streets for seven years and ended up at a shelter…but now I’m a college student and I know my worth.
I've learned to trust in God's plans for me.
