Our April workshop was beautiful! Our time at the shelter is every bit of challenging as it is life changing! In addition to our monthly workshops, we are sponsoring a living room and hoping to fill it with uplifting and encouraging books. Remodeling is underway!! Our charity partner is getting a much needed refresh and we are excited to be a part of that! We are hoping it will be a place for the women to renew and encourage each other. We are excited to begin furnishing this space!

March Update:

When we arrived at our March Workshop there was heaviness in the air. Sadness. Frustration. Fear.

Never underestimate the power of food, a room full of women and prayer. What a transformation we got to experience tonight. As we cooked, and talked there was so much laughter and so many stories and hugs. Thank you Cara Jones for leading our activity and to every awesome volunteer that came! To be able to smile and laugh when life has got you displaced and uncertain of the future is a gift. God is good~ (Only volunteers in the pictures)~

There is nothing like a big pot of soup on a COLD winter night. This was certainly an extra treat at our January workshop!
