Location, Location, Location… We Have A Location!!!

Living a Christ focused life requires faithful steps and trusting in the unseen. It’s no easy task because this lifestyle doesn’t consist of ‘every once in a while’ or ‘when it’s convenient’… it requires constant steps towards the uncomfortable unknown.

This has been life for The Willow House for the past year plus… constant steps towards the ‘uncomfortable unknown’. It’s our constant in Christ that keeps moving our mission forward, driven by the unfaltering heart of Nicole King. It has been her loving leadership, and her ability to utilize her Godly gifts through an aptitude to not only seek out but to trust those willing to serve this mission. Our board of directors has grown and the diversity of talent serves us well.

Our growth has been steady but slow. It is without question, our lack of a physical location has hindered our fundraising effectiveness. The fact of the matter is people need to see to believe…most people. Unfortunately we live in a world where scams run rampant and supporters want to know donation dollars are going where they are pledged. Our slow and steady growth has served us well to this point because our loyal supporters know the heart of this mission and believe God’s great hand is at work helping us to step closer and closer to being equipped to serve girls in Martin County, FL.

So with full hearts of gratitude we joyfully share… our physical location!

We know having a physical location will open up doors of opportunity beyond our wildest dreams, offering hope and healing for the hurt and broken. The Willow House board collectively understands the void these girls are living and facing everyday. That void is Jesus calling them to step up in the flesh and embrace unconditional love from people that have a heart to help facilitate healing and growth.

You… the one reading this right now, is helping us in the ripple effect that is necessary to our growth and success. YOU are helping The Willow House build a ‘Safe Place for Girls’ in Martin County, FL. THANK YOU!!!

The Power of Discernment

Screen Shot 2015-01-17 at 8.53.53 AM

Discernment is rarely an innate gift.

We learn by and through experiences, mentors and a willingness to grow and change from ‘the old’.

Understanding how to grow away from dysfunction isn’t easy especially when the root is family based.

Discernment with relationships is a critical life skill all people need to learn and understand.

Jim Rohn gets it right with his quote, “You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with.”

Be careful with the company you keep.  1 Corinthians 5:11

Broken Crayons Still Color

IMG_0059_2

The Willow House recognizes the amazing potential of at-risk girls. A broken crayon, not at its best potential, can still create unimaginable beauty. Please help us create a home where these girls will learn that even broken, they are vibrant, made with purpose and can still color the world a beautiful place.
