Find Your Passion!

Hi everyone! Ashley here…



I’m all smiles in this picture because I’m still on a high from serving @ The Alabama Baptist Children’s Home’s Annual Open House.

Friends, let me tell you about this shirt I’m wearing though. It may look like just a shirt but it means so much more to me than that. It represents the place that I consider to be my second home. It represents 10 incredible & beautiful children that I love like they are my own. It represents all the other equally as amazing children that I have watched come in and out of the home over the years. These babies as I call them… they need more people wearing these shirts. They need more people to tell them how amazingly wonderful and crazy beautiful they are.

As we began to wrap our volunteer duties up tonight, we did our usual goodbyes to all the kiddos. We always tell them that we love them, of course, but this time… one of our boys made it a point to tell me that he loves us too. It took all I had not to cry in front of him because in the year that I have known him… he’s never been much of an emotion showing person. It’s moments like this that make me realize that God needed me to stay alive 10 years ago when by all accounts… I shouldn’t have. He needed me to be exactly where he has put me. I may be but a small piece of these children’s lives… but that’s all that matters!

I encourage everyone that might see this post to find your passion and use it to serve.

These children deserve to know your love. They deserve to know what Home feels like.
