  • Sometimes we have dreams and ideas that happen right away.

    Sometimes those dreams and ideas take days, months, and even years to come about.

    A few months back I decided that my church needed a ministry specifically for children with special needs. If public schools have a place for these precious kids then why wouldn't a church?

    After months of meeting and praying for more leadership to rise up, this ministry is beginning to take off. We have a person who has the heart (and time!) to commit to creating a place for children with special needs who attend our church. Not only will these kids now have a place and a buddy to interact with each Sunday that will meet their needs, but these kids will now begin to truly see the love of God played out in the lives of the volunteers who sign up to help us.

    So that's the next thing, getting volunteers...

    This story keeps changing and not necessarily how I thought it would at the beginning. I find myself thinking, "wow that is TOTALLY not what I thought it look like...but wow it is EXACTLY how it should be."

    I have discovered that sometimes when you leap it is not just one leap but a series of leaps and when connected all together tell a beautiful story of how one person can make a difference.
