Hello, my name is Margie. I was once a very troubled young person, in love with love, engaged 5 times prior to age 25, and always looking for fulfillment through men. I worried that I would become pregnant, but did not have a plan if I did. My life was chaotic. I was very angry and had no direction. If I only had a kind ear of someone who would love me and help guide me to the right paths, that would be life-saving!, I thought to myself. Finally someone did reach out to me and I was hungry to learn and began following their guidance. It was wonderful to finally meet a person with a kind ear and sound advice. I started on a journey of improving my life and finding purpose for living. I realized that I am a valuable human being and didn’t have to depend on men to make me feel loved. I have since married and have 3 beautiful children and 3 adorable grandchildren. My relationship with my husband, although it is not perfect, is thriving because we now have the tools to manage our difficulties. I recently began volunteering at Birthline because I want to become that kind ear women are searching for, and would love to help them feel valued and cared for. I don’t want anyone to feel as lost as I once was.
