The following was written by Krista McCulloch, Owner, Anchored in Hope Counseling.
When I was asked to write the story of how Anchored in Hope Counseling was born, I thought…how do I put this into words? How do I give justice to the beautiful, complex journey that led me to open Anchored in Hope Counseling?
Anchored in Hope Counseling was born from the ashes, quite literally.
In 2018 I had a devastating total loss house fire. God delivered me home at the exact precise moment I needed to be there to save my family. I was not supposed to be home. I was working my contingent job and felt sick to the point I needed to be picked up from work and driven home by my mother in-law. I left work an hour and half early and when I walked in the door there was no sign anything was wrong with the house. I immediately woke up my husband who was asleep in my sons room. I was crying as I told him “somethings wrong, I felt so sick your mom had to come get me from work early.” As he went to get me pajamas, the smoke alarms went off and we saw smoke coming out of the ceiling. Each of us ran, grabbed a kid and flew out the house. My husband ran right back in thinking it was a small fire. The room my son was just sleeping in seconds ago had flames shooting down from the ceiling. It was so bad he had to run immediately back out. The firefighters worked to put out the fire for many hours. It was a total loss. I kept thinking…I was not supposed to be here, and God delivered me home.
