The Women of Care ministry at Austin Ridge provides friendship and fellowship on a one-on-one basis for those who may simply need someone to talk to; they provide encouragement and support for those who may be facing a crisis due to a life event, and they provide guidance for those who may be searching for practical ways to grow.

Kristin Paulson was sexually assaulted at the age of 16. She tried to put the assault behind her and move on with her life. Years later Kristin now has a loving husband and 3 kids. She felt like she was living the American Dream, but she could not escape the hurt and pain she carried from her past. It was through the Women of Care ministry that Kristin learned how God redeems the broken. He gave her story purpose and meaning, and she felt the burden of her past finally lifted.

“What I did and what has been done to me is not who I am, I am who God says I am. There is no denying that God is alive because of what He has done in my life.” - Kristin Paulson
