check it out!

and it's here! i have a fantastic non-profit to share with you guys. a few years ago, i was a part of a group of gals from my church that met to study the Word, offer encouragement, and the like. after a while, just meeting and feeding off each other wasn't enough. so, after some thinking, Young Moms began: a teen parent community here in our little town.
yes, these girls have perhaps made some decisions that aren't incredibly popular, but Jesus wants them for His very own. and boy do they need some help on this side of eternity! our group of volunteer gals each has something to teach, something to offer these girls--how to swaddle your baby, how to make a Christmas craft for your baby, a wise word, encouragement, and most of all: friendship.

there's many other things that happen at our meetings, and i want you to check out our new website: www.youngmomsrome.com and tell me what you think.

i'll keep you posted along the way, maybe with a story or two. some of these girls are inspirations to me, and i am so proud to watch them learn & grow!

What a blessing that is going to be for both the girls and the volunteers. I would love to read about what the Lord is doing in their lives.
