Hi friends!! We have some really exciting news…. I’ve had a hope in the last few years to start a foundation to support the families of our area. I just was not sure what our function would be. There are truly so many needs. Meeting Isaac and his family and planning his event truly sharpened that focus for me. Meeting Will and several more sweet families facing some really hard days and truly coming to love these moms, dads, and kids, was like a spotlight on exactly what our purpose would be. This week we got approval from the State of Texas as an official nonprofit 💖
Before I tell you the name- it comes from several things:
1. My grandma and my mom have always said “Many hands make light work”. The more people helping the bigger the task you can tackle and the faster and better the result.
2. Our family has always been drawn to scripture, sayings, really anything about light. And in these events activities and interactions We want to shine a light for families in some of their darkest and hardest times…..
3. 316- This one is maybe my favorite…it’s our wedding day, and as God arranges sometimes- it has all my peoples birthdays in it so it’s definitely become our family number. It repeats continuously in our lives. A perfect example of that is – When I was really sick- on days that were the scariest,scans-surgeries- tests, y’all know the drill- I would repeat Deuteronomy 31:6 to my self (actually not even realizing the book & verse number)
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, (whatever I was facing in that moment) for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”
We all know the “thems” of life. Moments we are not sure how we will get through. What a precious gift it is to have someone take our hands, offer love, and share some kindness and joy. Especially when those things are offered with no strings, all details handled,and we are given a minute to breathe and just enjoy the good.
So y’all. There you have it!!
Light Work 316, Inc.
