27 Jul Where Mercy and Truth Meet: Homeless Women of Wheeler Speak
Where Mercy and Truth Meet: Homeless Women of Wheeler Speak is a work of literature and art, created with honesty and heart, by women whose voices haven’t always been heard, women who have found themselves in the desperate circumstance of homelessness.
The anthology is published by INwords, the publishing arm of the Indiana Writers Center, and edited by Darolyn Lyn Jones, who directs the IWC s Memoir Project. During the summer of 2015, the IWC partnered with the Wheeler Mission Ministries Center for Women & Children to sponsor a project centered on the untold stories of the women seeking help in their shelter.
Under the direction of Jones and others from the IWC, each of the women found a place to find her voice, to tell her story of struggle, heartbreak and hope through the written word. Each also gained the confidence to share her experiences of abuse, loss, life on the streets and addiction, as well as faith and hope for a better future.
