Souls Harbor NWA

“I drove into the woods alone, I was planning to drink myself to death. Then my sponsor came and found me and brought me back to Souls Harbor.”

Danny is just one of hundreds of men who have found a safe place at Souls Harbor over the last 30 years. That day in the woods was years ago, but you can still find Danny at Souls Harbor. Today he’s there as a staff member helping the men like Les, who is 7 months free from a 29 year meth addiction, find work and encouraging them in their hard moments.

I heard a sportscaster say that opening day of the NCAA men's basketball tournament is the number one day men call in sick.

I don’t know if that’s true or not, but on day one, the University of Kentucky opened up against Hampton University and Hampton’s odds of winning were .006%. They were an underdog for sure.

You're loved by God. I don’t know why it's so hard for us to deeply, wholly believe that's true sometimes. We hear again and again the whispers of doubt. Can I be a different voice, a louder voice, in your life today?

You really are loved.

Project Zero

“We were waiting in the driveway of their foster home and they got off the school bus. They came running down and all of a sudden Corey said “Daddy” and I just lost it and then Shamarion kept saying “Daddy” and that’s a word they hadn’t said in a long time, that was a really powerful moment.”  Kyle Cooksey

When the Cooksey’s decided to adopt God led them to Project Zero and through Project Zero to their kids De’Aysha, Shamarion, and Corey.

When Richard and I moved last year we discussed whether we should pack a heavy bucket of old, rusty tools.

I pointed out that they hadn’t seen the light of day in five years. He held tight to the oversized white bucket, assuring me that he’d need them one day.

So we lugged the bucket of tools across state lines.

April is all about spring. The dread of winter in the rearview mirror and the new of spring in the front windshield. 

April also brings golf fans to a place in Georgia that is about as beautiful a place as you will find.  The Dogwood trees and Azaleas are in bloom and set against the green of the course, it's incredible.  The competition is great because The Masters is considered a major championship and all professional golfers dream to win there.

Don't give up. You've persevered when it would have been easier to quit. You've moved forward when you felt weary. You've pushed through to what God has for you. And that is extraordinary.

It may seem like no one sees, no one notices, no one even knows. But let me reassure you that the loving eyes of God have watched every step. And he has not just watched — he has walked beside you all the way.

Christian Women's Job Corps

After more than ten years of being a stay at home mom reentering the workforce was overwhelming to me. I remember the first time I sat down to create a resume. I couldn’t figure out if diaper changing, cooking 3 meals a day for 4 picky kids, and refereeing fighting toddlers went under “skills” or “strengths”. In the end, I turned off the computer, locked myself in the bathroom and had a good cry. Even though I was a smart, competent woman I felt lost and overwhelmed.

Whether you’re like me, reentering the workforce after several years home with the kids, you’re seeking employment for the first time, or you’re just looking to change career paths, Christian Women’s Job Corps can help.

Sharathon Day 3 Recap

In 2013 we had a son that was born on July 2nd and he actually passed away.

I still miss my son a lot. I have days when I’m really, really sad and I miss him so much, but when I listen to this radio station it helps me stay focused and helps me have that hope and holding on and knowing that God has him in His hands and He’s taking care of all of us.
