Katie’s story shows that a series of choices do not have to determine a life-long path.

How can Katie’s story be a message of hope?


Katie realized that through all of this, she needed to forgive herself.

Why do you think forgiving one’s self can be the hardest place to seek forgiveness?


Regarding her statement, “I kept looking for someone to love me and help me…”

What is the danger in looking for love/acceptance outside of our self and outside of God?


In order to make a real change in her life, Katie says that she prayed and had to separate herself from the “evil of the world”.

Have you experienced a time when, along with prayer, you also needed to move away from certain influences in your life once you realized they were not good for you?


Katie’s story is one of FORGIVENESS.

Consider ONE way her story spoke to you.
