Last night, I attended a benefit and came away with a new outlook on my life as well as the current state of my non-profit, Sleep Tight Kids. The evening was filled with valuable information about compassion and support for women who need it. The fund-raiser was for an organization called, Renewal House. I hope to partner my non-profit with theirs to provide blankets, pj’s and other comfort items to the women and infants who reside there. As the founder’s spoke about the transformation that young women go thru as they become mothers, I remembered how my own pregnancies left me with a feeling of uncertainty and excitement at the same time. I relied heavily on my husband and family for support and don’t know how I would have done it alone. I’m honored that we were invited to attend this event, and I plan to support the Renewal House in any way I can. If you are interested in learning more, please visit: www.renewalhouseministries.org
David and Beth, founders of Renewal House, played this short clip called The Butterfly Circus, to convey points of compassion that coincide with their mission to help others. It is beautifully imagery and has a powerful message.
It runs about 20 minutes, but it is well worth it. I wanted to share this because of the way it touched my soul.
