BRITTANY

Brittany has faced a lifetime of struggles, and her sister has requested a bundle for her as she enters into a new season:

“My younger sister Brittany is giving birth in a few weeks–it's the first baby in the next generation of our family.

It's hard to describe the hardships Brittany has faced. Brittany was married to her high school sweetheart for almost eight years, but ended up getting divorced. After this, she was in an abusive relationship for about a year. She left this relationship though, and last summer she met someone she loves deeply and they got pregnant. They have their struggles as a couple, and raising a child will be difficult. People are often negative about the length of time she has been in a relationship and also how young she is (twenty-four years old).

Brittany dreams of being a police officer, but she currently does hair. She has a big heart and definitely still has much to learn, but I worry about how much those words hurt when she is constantly told she will fail. I would like to encourage her and would love other people from around the world to do the same for her. Any advice and shared experiences would be wonderful both in the context of being a parent and being a young person.”

ALLIE

Allie's sister reached out to us to share her story with us. She wrote:

“My sister Allie is thirty-two and lives at home with my parents. She has cerebral palsy and is in a wheelchair. She is high on the spectrum intellectually, but needs assistance with all of her physical needs. She does keep a Facebook page, and finds it easy to communicate to her long distance best friend and other friends through written communication. Her speech is a bit hard to understand for newcomers, so she tends to be rather shy in social settings. Despite her physical disability, she is a positive and bright woman with a great sense of humor!

Allie and my parents recently relocated to Georgia. I fear she's fallen into depression. It's not easy being an adult with a disability and living at home, not by choice, but out of necessity. Allie wishes she could live in Texas near her best friend. For many reasons, that is not feasible at this time.  This has caused her feel stuck.”

Let's rally around Ally and share with her all the possibilities + joys that can come from living in a new city!

BECKY

Laura's sister is struggling, and she shared some of her story with us in hopes that we can encourage her:

“My sweet sister Becky is facing divorce after being with her husband since she was seventeen years old. She was a mom very early in life and has known many challenges as a parent and a spouse. She has handled them with strength and grace. Becky is wise beyond her tears from these trials, but with the end of her marriage at hand she is overwhelmed at what she has lost and unsure of how to move forward as a single mom. She could really use a whole lot of love and truth poured on her heart right now–strong reminders that she's worthy of love, capable of handling whatever the future holds, and that as she turns forty this year, the best is yet to come.”

LEXI

We received a request for Lexi – a courageous, but struggling young woman. Her best friend described her and her situation:

“Lexi isn't just my best friend, she is more like a sister. Throughout the span of our 10+ year friendship, I have come to know her as the most kind, forgiving, and selfless human I have ever encountered. Despite her consistent uphill battle with chronic depression, Lexi has always pushed herself and shown pure strength in situations I would have crumbled in. Since graduating from college with her bachelors in social work a few years back, she has felt lost and unsure of who she is. With no family to help her through the transition from adolescence into adulthood, she has found herself having to figure it out on her own. From the disappointment of not being able to find a job in her field, to the struggles of being forced into low-paying retail jobs while suffering from anxiety and being financially unable to pay back her student loans, to feeling trapped in an emotionally abusive relationship–Lexi still held her head up. Last month though, she was fired from her job at a department store. I have never known her to give up, but she is at her breaking point. She believes she is not meant to achieve happiness because she doesn't deserve it.”

Grab your pens and join us in reminding Lexi that happiness is worth fighting for and she does deserve to find it!

JENNIFER

We received a request for a bundle of letters from a daughter for her deserving mother. She writes:

“My mom has gone through the year of a lifetime. She had gastric sleeve surgery and lost 115 pounds. She is no longer insulin dependent and controls her diabetes! She's gained so much from these changes, however, her recent medical issues have put a halt in her growth and confidence. This past year after her gastric surgery, she got breast cancer, had surgery and radiation, beat the cancer, but now has shingles. She constantly says how discouraging it is to continuously have such big issues impacting her life. She needs more love than I can give her at this moment. Please support my mom and let her know there's more love and life out there.”

Join us as we encourage a brave woman in her pursuit of life + happiness!
