Erica Carter

Principal, New York Home

My name is Erica Carter and I am sinner saved by grace and baptized in the power of the Holy Spirit.  I’m 45 years old, and for 25 of those years I lived in idol worship of my flesh and the world’s values of success.  Despite having a strong Christian family background, going to college and getting a Master’s Degree, and teaching high school English for six years, I still found my life broken and destroyed by an alcohol and drug addiction.  My family did an intervention and sent me away to a place called The Walter Home in Garrison, NY.  I not only completed and graduated from the program but have been working in full-time ministry here for the past nine years.  I do not know what my future holds, but I’m glad I know the one who holds it.  Psalm 103:12: “as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.”
