I’m interested in helping people realize the dreams that God gives them. We begin the process with this principle:
 
Whatever gets you out of bed in the morning is what give you passion and energy.
 
And that leads to two questions:
 
1. What is it?
 
2. How do you give it priority in your life?
 
                So, how do you answer those questions?

  • 1. Working with people to help them find their path, as an advocate, a counselor, and a butt-kicker.

    2. Keep myself available to be with people – which means sticking to my budget so I don’t have to take on a job, and managing my time with my kids so that I have time for others.

  • Seth,

    I awake almost EVERY morning thinking of beautiful girls held captive in the sex trade; precious little kids with hungry bellies and hearts, and families with no hope. I REALLY DO!

    I also think of the ones HERE that I can take along on the journey to make a difference in our world, and the ones that say “Hey coach, I don’t know what to do, I want to make a difference, my heart is over “there”…” – and that gives me great hope and energy to keep going.

    SO, without having everything “together” and all things in place and a beefed up bank account, we (Wipe Every Tear) are about ready to jump in with both feet and support our first full time staff person in Manila, Philippines and open up a house or apartment and “go for it” (Col.3:23) and just start loving girls on the streets and the bars held captive in the sex trade.

    We don’t have our “act” completely together yet, but know who does!

    How we are going to finance this, I’m not sure, but little by little God is bringing people our way to say “hey, I want to help with that”.

    Hey, by the way, if any of you have your “act” together and would like to give us advice and network with us, you can email me at [email protected] or check us out on Facebook: “Wipe Every Tear”.

    We are young, fresh, and willing to be radical (but isn’t that really just “normal”?)

    Bless you guys REAL GOOD!

  • 1. Doing nothing, accomplishes nothing, and wastes the gift Christ gave me.

    2. Left a secure job to begin a ministry that has already begun serving the foster care community of North Georgia.

    Children who feel they have nobody that loves them, need to know Christ is always there for them through our service and message of his grace and love.

  • Sheer grit got me out of bed in the morning for much of my adult life…and sometimes that wasn’t even enough. Why? Because the black dog of depression colored every sunrise and dogged my days.

    When I came out of this “barren wilderness” after four decades, into a new, God-given land of freedom, one of the most notable differences was the first five minutes of awaking each day.

    Unless someone has walked a similar path they can not know how wondrous I still find those first five minutes of awakening, each and every day. Why?

    Because I now wake with joy and anticipation of each day, no matter my outward circumstances. It is a gift beyond compare that I never take for granted.

    The Holy Spirit gets me out of bed each morning, beckoning me into a day of high adventure and purpose. My days are scripted entirely by Him.

    My gratitude is unbounded. I wish this freedom and purpose for all.

    I never know what the day will bring, whether pain or pleasure or both. But, I know I am alive in the best sense of the word.

    Love,
    Judith

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
