How are things

Hey everyone

This blog thing has been pretty quiet lately. How have things been going out there? I enjoyed seeing everyone on a weekly basis and now it seems like forever since we have chatted. I was telling Linda VW the other day that I notice a few of the pull tabs on the poster in at Winks had been removed. Not that it is nice to think we may have possible clients soon, but who knows.

I know that Michelle has heard some eye opening stories at the mothers group, hard to believe that there are young moms living in such situations, they will be in my prayers...

How is the group preparations for Clinton coming Linda VW? Can we help in any way??

Hope all is well with everyone

In His Hands

Monday, February 21, 2011


Diane and I have been working very hard on developing a website for us. What we really, really need is someone to step us and be committed to write up a newsletter for the site. Something that will tell everyone what we have been doing, what success and trials we have gone through. Prayers that are needed. It is an important part of our ministry here,ladies.
Can anyone volunteer to write up something? Just let me know and I will forward to Diane. She had done unbelievable work for us for $0 , we need to prove to her that God has been working through us. She knows of God, but does not understand him. This is our chance! Just speak for the heart! Room2 Grow needs you. We all have gifts that we didn't know we had, now is the time to thank God for these gifts!!

Emmanuel Baptist Church

You know, it just blows me away how God works. I am practicing my speech in front of the mirror and microwave (it has a timer) and I would stutter and stumble. Yet, Linda prayed before we went into the church and I felt a sense of calm come over me. I went up the pulpit in front of about 150 people and did not stumble at all. It went very well. The church had a love offering this morning and will have another offering next Sunday for us. After the service, about 15 people came up to us, asking questions, giving support and stories. We met two families who are willing to become foster homes for a pregnant women, we met a woman who runs a second hand store in Dashwood and is willing to donate baby items. We met a woman who had a baby boy at the age of 16 in 1971 and was sent to a home for unwed mothers. She said that she had to wear wigs and disguises to hide her 'shame'. Even after 40 years, she was starting to cry while telling her story. We met a mother whose daughter runs a very successful program teaching absentince and loving yourself. I am sure that we can use her as a resource for the young mom's group in Goderich and later on in Clinton.
We handed out a number of 'cards' and people wanting to keep in touch with us.
It was an amazing experience and I am glad we did it. Thanks everyone for your support!

monthly meeting

Hey Ladies

Great meeting last night, seems like lots of progress is being made for R2G.

Please except my apology to any and all who may find offence with my off the wall humor at our meetings. I don't mean to make light of anything we are discussing at the time, I take this mission very seriously. For some reason I just seem to come up with these silly comments and never take the time to "screen" any of it before it reaches my mouth. A good laugh is food for the soul, but never ment to make light of serious issues, topics, situations, confessions...etc. Please do not think I would even consider making light in a situation with a potential client.

Sounds like we have some more investigating to do were Beginnings is concerned, we need to make sure all avenues have been considered before committing to one specific umbrella. I''m totally on board when mentioned that Linda R be made director, she seems to fit the bill perfectly. Linda VW you are deffinitly one to do more of the hands on stuff.

This is working ladies, we are doing it R2G is going to grow and grow and grow!

Never too much to handle

Hey ladies

Something that has been going through my mind throughout the day that we should try to remind girls of (Christian or not). God has promised never to give us more then we can handle, he knows our limits better then we ever could. I know there is a verse in the Bible relating to this but I am not sure where. Many if not all of the girls we meet up with will be exteremly overwhelmed with all that is on their "plate", feeling like they can't be able to handle it all. We need to reassure them that God has it all under control...

Just my thoughts,

Mind In High Gear

Hey Ladies

I woke up last night at 1 and my mind started working overtime, all the different scenarios from yesterdays meeting were replaying. What an amazing teaching experience that was for us, thanks Linda for thinking of it and setting it up for us. It went so well and just reaffirms in my heart that we are on the right track... I finally had to stop and pray myself back to sleep, it took great effort to shut it all off. God helped though!!
