Lacey’s Story: Fatherless, but Never Forsaken

Abandoned, But Not Forsaken

Lacey started coming to Breakaway summer camp when she was 6-years old. Though she was abandoned by a father who ended up in prison, she was never forsaken. The Bible says, “God places the lonely in families; he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy” (Psalm 68:6 NLT). Now as a second year Lee University nursing student, Lacey shares a heartfelt story about overcoming childhood hardships and how the Breakaway community became a refuge for her. Having a father in prison, or living in the foster care system “doesn’t define you.” You choose what defines you. We always have that choice no matter what kind of cards we’ve been dealt in life. Prepare to be inspired!
