In this episode, I interview Lexie Voorhees, childhood abuse survivor and former Altered Stories Ministry Board Treasurer and Guest Blogger. Lexie is a Christ follower, women’s ministry leader and former non-profit Finance business professional who lives in Tucson, Arizona. She has firsthand knowledge of the pain and despair that comes from a childhood of neglect and abuse.
Lexie and I discuss in our conversation her journey of healing by the transforming power of Jesus Christ — a power she only began to realize with more depth and discernment, ten years after accepting Christ as her Lord and Savior at the age of 16.
Lexie also shares how she journeyed with God, persevering in allowing Him to not only mend her broken heart, but to show her how to put the past behind her and live life with amazing joy, discovering that God’s faithfulness, provisions and love are truly more than she could ever imagine!
Enjoy listening to Lexie’s God glorifying Altered story!

Isaiah 42:16 New International Version (NIV)
16 I will lead the blind by ways they have not known,
along unfamiliar paths I will guide them;

and make the rough places smooth.
These are the things I will do;
I will not forsake them.
Isaiah 43:1-3 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
43 But now, thus says the Lord, your Creator, O Jacob,
And He who formed you, O Israel,
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you;
I have called you by name; you are Mine!
2 “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they will not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched,
Nor will the flame burn you.
3 “For I am the Lord your God,
The Holy One of Israel, your Savior;
