Organizations That Inspire Me:
I’ve been part of Young Life for over 15 years now and I absolutely love the heart of their mission. Simply to tell kids about Jesus. Young Life volunteers and staff leaders go where most are reluctant to go….. middle school cafeterias, high school bleachers, college dorms, into the lives of teen moms, urban streets and Capernaum (special needs). Half the friends we’ve made while moving around have been through Young Life because there’s just a common bond between Young Life-ers. I will be highlighting different friends we have on Young Life staff across the country…you will love hearing about what they do.
This organization is my other passion. Equipping and Encouraging Women. They speak my language and I will be sharing more about them in future posts!
A21 exists to abolish modern day slavery in the form of human trafficking. A lot of this happens right in our own backyard without us even realizing it. Please learn more about A21 and help support their mission. This is near and dear to my heart.
What an amazing organization! When I found out about them, I couldn’t believe that they are actually local! They help during times of disaster and emergencies by providing much needed, QUALITY food during a crisis and help keep the volunteers/staff/crew fueled. I totally admire what this organization does.
Think Girl Scouts + AWANAS = Vessels. Yes. This is fairly new, but such an exciting opportunity for 3rd to 5th grade girls. Vessels is all about filling these young girls up with the truth of God so that they can be poured out for His purposes. It’s such a neat way to love on these young girls and prepare them for middle school, high school and beyond. And given the ages of my girls….we’ll be doing Vessels for the next decade. :).
