Brad Jude – Resume Coach
No doubt everyone can relate to the anxiety that comes with finding a job. And a major part of our employment success is a well-written resume. But even the most gifted writer can struggle in this area.
Truth be told, it’s not always easy to market yourself – especially if you have employment gaps or a criminal history to explain. That is why we are grateful for volunteers like Brad Jude, who devote their time and talent to helping Gilgal women overcome employment barriers and see the potential God has for them.

April 23 – 29, 2017 is National Volunteer Week, an opportunity to recognize and thank volunteers who lend their time, talent, voice and support to causes they care about in their community. Their stories can serve to inspire others to find ways to take action that creates change.

My name is Terri T. and this is MY GILGAL STORY!
My name is Terri T. I was born in Atlanta, GA and I am a 49-year-old mother of three and grandmother of two. I have been at Gilgal two months. In just over a month, I will be 50. I never expected to spend my 50th birthday in a recovery program.
My name is Nancy J. and this is MY GILGAL STORY!
Five and a half years ago I began what I thought would be my first and last rehab
program. It certainly was my first, but wasn’t my last.
My name is Felicia C. and this is MY GILGAL STORY!
I am a former resident of Gilgal and even though I did not successfully complete the program, the time I spent there has changed my life in more ways than I can tell. Instead of focusing on the fact that I did not graduate, I used the lessons I had learned while there and the love I know that my God has for me to do the “next right thing. ”

We are so grateful to the team from Pioneer Drive Baptist Church in Abilene, Texas who just spent one week at Gilgal giving us a huge makeover!

My name is Lauren D., but I’ve been called, “slow,” “strange,” “a trick,” “a whore,” “a crack-head,” “stupid,” and “a liar.” My whole life was spent living like these names. I never knew I had an identity crisis. I just believed what I was told about myself. I also believed that I wasn’t worthy of change.
A Special Christmas Message to Our Family and Friends
Night falls early this time of year, as darkness covers the world outside. Up in the sky, a tiny light glimmers, piercing the darkness with a soft ray of white. Far beyond this bright little star are marvelous creations too magnificent to imagine.
Pondering this truth, we sit in awe at the One who constantly creates these new designs. His omnipotent presence moves through space and time. What an awesome God He is. So far above what we can think or know. And it is this God, the amazing Creator of all things, who also created us.
