“I chose to be a part of this show because ~ this summer our Son was born oxygen deprived and as a result is now severely brain damaged. In the time since he was born my family I and have been deeply cared for by so many people. I feel like I really want to help others who have a need, as I myself have been given to in my need. Sometimes it really isn’t about money, sometimes it’s just the very real physical need for a glass of water or a meal to keep you sustained. I am humbled and blessed by how many times when I really needed something God supplied it right in my time of need. He uses others to fulfill our needs and even the very air we breathe is given by God alone. This world is broken and painful but God cares for us and He will work all things together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. We are only humans, we can’t solve the problem of pain ~ but we can certainly comfort others with the comfort we ourselves have been comforted with.

I want to use my talents and gifts to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever! In pursuit of that I have been actively looking for ways to help others while using my creativity etc. This was just one way to be able to share what God has done to bless us, and to carry on blessing others.”
