Thank you, Terry Merritt, for your vision to make a safe place where women could heal and have their lives restored through Jesus Christ.

October 4, 2009 to October 4, 2019, and onward!

Learning how to live life to the fullest in a practical Christian way.


A Note from the Director

Fall 2019
 
The leaves are beginning to fall some here at House of Pearls. I love this time of year. Everything seems so peaceful and serene. The colors get richer and more vibrant. For a while anyway. Like everything else in life, we have moments that are vibrant and others that are calmer and subdued . Things are always changing.
 
Due to some unexpected circumstances, we have had to cancel our annual fall banquet. But God has provided through His people. So we will wait and have a summer banquet.
 
If you would like to support the Pearls, you can donate here on our website, even set up to donate monthly. You can also donate on our Facebook page or mail a check to

 

House of Pearls
PO Box 516
Monroe, NC 28111

 
We count on your contributions. We cannot do what we do here without your help. House of Pearls provides all the needs of each Pearl. We hope to be adding to our home and are looking for a second home to further our transition program so that, once the Pearls graduate the program, they are given more opportunities to be successful. 
 
Until then, we will be doing some exciting things:
 
  • The Randy Travis Festival is coming up September 21st in Marshville. We will have a tent there and have some t-shirts to sale. Stop by our table and say hello and get to know us better. 
  • We will be attending the JAARS Day in Waxhaw in October. Some of the Pearls will be singing and playing instruments with a one of our talented volunteers. So look for us there and say hello. 
  • We are planning a special date in December to host a exciting fundraiser. We will be updating the web page soon with that information. 
God has been good to us. We will have a special Pearl graduating soon. That will open up an opportunity to house another special lady who needs God’s guidance and restoration. Always keep us in your prayer as we seek His will for this Ministry. 
 
God Bless you all. And Happy Fall Y’all!
 
While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

Genesis 8:22

Today’s blessing, Preacher Shari Cotton Pate came to spend time with the Pearls. The Pearls cooked them lunch, homemade chicken and dumplings, and Apple Dumplings with ice cream.
Preacher Cotton and his precious wife Shari along with their amazing Church Frontline Biker Church in Kershaw SC, have been so good to House of Pearls.

So excited to get together with those that can come today and plan this fundraiser at House of Pearls! If you love decorating and would allow us to use some of your decorations for Dec 7th House of Pearls Christmas Tour Fundraiser, please contact me.

Some things I know we will need:

Generator (if you have been to the house, you know our power struggles)

Lots of decorations (my thoughts are keeping it natural looking, like lots of holly, greenery, etc, lighting for the circle court yard, nativity scene (LIVE would be great!) Christmas treeS, but I'm not the decorator!)

I need a handyman to fix the front porch light! ( Tom Hunter hint hint) I am thinking Santa and Mrs Claus would be perfect on the front porch?

Can't find a carriage for horse and carriage rides down the drive way, which is what I really wanted! But Frank Moore said he will bring his horses for horse rides... Maybe Frank Moore would dress up as an elf?!!?! lol j/k

Would anyone in the area like to add their home to this special night for more interest in the public? Tour of HOMES?

Things to talk about:

Price of tickets?

Pre-sale?

Where to get the tickets?

Flyers, (my husband can make them, where to print them and where to post them)

Bake sale at event?

Can't wait to hear your ideas! See yall at 11:00
