“Let all that you do be done in love.” – I Corinthians 16:14 – We are called to love and to love in all that we do. In every frustration, in every action. All things. Not an easy task. Not an action most are able to do 100%. We are human. We make mistakes. Thankfully he loves us in all things, and gives grace.

We love…

“We love because He first loved us.” (1 John‬ ‭4:19 ‭ESV)‬‬ “Everything we are, and everything we are able to do, is because of God.” (Do Not Depart) We are called to love, and show God’s love in our every action. Not to judge, not to hurt, but to be kind and show gentleness. We are human, we will make mistakes, but through Him we can be empowered to love as He loves, seek forgiveness when we misstep… and above all receive His grace, and give His grace in return.

Happy Birthday Director of Programs, Shelly!!

Happy Birthday to our Programs Director, Shelly!! Shelly, you were one of our very first believers to commit to our mission and join a Board of Directors without truly knowing the ride you were about to agree to! Your faithfulness to the Father, and deep trust in Him with every aspect of your life is inspiring to all who know you. We are so thankful you are apart of our organization. Blessings on your birthday!

So many birthdays this week!!

Happy Birthday this week to all 3 of these ladies! We are so blessed to have Caryn as our Director of Finance! God has gifted her in so many ways that she jumped into a need of our 501(c)3 and will most likely shift into a whole new area of our non-profit when another need arises! Our newest Director, Tami, blesses us with direct experience working with youth experiencing homelessness and has taken on finalizing our program and creating training for our Family Advocates that will come alongside our young moms. Finally, Kelsey has been with us since the beginning of the vision and we are so thankful for her dedication and heart. Happy Birthday ladies!!

Happy Birthday, Caryn!!

I have called you by name…

 “…I have called you by name; you are Mine!’” Isaiah 43:1 (NASB)
Thankful this morning for the reminder that I am His and that He is faithful. No matter the circumstances I may face, no matter how insurmountable my goals may seem – He is with me and He has called me to do His good work here on Earth. I must remember to live this life for my family and according to His purpose so that my children may grow in their faith deeply. I am thankful for my quiet moments with my littlest littles where I can reflect on His word and prioritize a consistent moment with them each Monday. As we continue to finalize Elevate’s FIRST home, we ask that you give faithfully and consistently just $77/month towards the salary of our FIRST Residential Housing Advocate. Learn more @

Blessed by my “North” Church Family this weekend @ Northgate as I share my story, and learn the stories of others that God brought into my life today. Donate to our Residential Housing Advocate campaign during this giving season:
