Get A Minor Miracle

Paul and I have worked in and for non-profits. We still consult with a few and are grant writers. We love working with organizations that are doing it right; embodying the spirit of a non-profit and doing something for the community or world that makes a difference. We are currently working with an organization that is all about empowering minorities to be entrepreneurs and another organization that is working to make water safer to drink. In the past we have worked with several non-profits that are dedicated to the homeless. We have even worked with Moms who were collecting business attire for homeless women looking for a job. These are the people who are creating minor miracles and major miracles in our world every day.

No More Children Lost

I cannot imagine the feeling of losing a child. In fact the thought of it sends me into a panic. The grief is immeasurable. When we hear things like every 20 seconds a child dies of a preventable disease, we think of the life lost but hardly mention the grief stricken parents, siblings and family left behind. The loss of the child is a permanent wound in a heart that can mend but can never be whole.
