Who reminds you that you're loved??


I'm gonna go out on a limb here and assume that I'm not the only woman who's questioned my worth-y-ness, my lovability or the point to my silly life on this planet.

Some days are "big question" days. For whatever reason, I seem to get plagued with all the meaning-of-life thoughts at once. On those days reading some red letters in the Bible and praying thankful prayers are my saving grace.

But still, dare I say it, sometimes I need a  little something else. God is always enough for us, but He knew from the beginning of creation that sometime I'd still be a little basket-casey even with His Spirit in me. So, he gave us each other.

He gave me friends and family that see all my junk and somehow all of that's dim in the light of the good stuff God put in me--- the kindness, the ridiculous ideas, the hugs, the creativity.

So on those days when I'm freaking out, my dear, most patient man award-winning husband makes me repeat out loud:

"I am Charlotte the loved."

It's silly, but true. It actually helps. 

I pray that ALL of us would have someone in our lives to remind us of our deepest, truest identity--- sons and daughters of God.

Who do you have in your life that reminds you that you're loved??

We're Thankful for Changed Lives!

We’ve reached the end of the 2016/17 school yearHere are some incredible milestones the students have accomplished through the 2016/17 school year, thanks to your compassionate support.
(We are still awaiting final reports from one group of classes, and we'll update these numbers when they are received).
In this season of Thanksgiving, we are grateful for your support, and for the many lives that have been beautifully transformed!

Thousands of students, their families and communities are being restored and renewed because of your assistance: Girls are now in school, instead of in early marriage or child labor. Families thrive; business skills are learned and incomes increase, preventing trafficking. New medical and sanitary practices bring health and wholeness. 
In hundreds of communities, and thousands of lives, you have brought incredible change and new life. And this is only the beginning for them. On their behalf, "Thank you for caring!"

Meet Annaya

The school year is more than halfway through! We’d like to introduce a student whose life is being transformed by your compassion and kindness.

As a young girl, Annaya’s heart was broken. She had a passion for learning, but her parents said that education is not for girls. Despite her opposition and resistance, Annaya was married by her parents at the age of 15.

Ten years later, now 25 years old, Annaya has four children and struggles with health problems due to teenage pregnancies.

Annaya’s husband Shreyas has a job, but he abused liquor which left insufficient funds to care for the children. Concerned, Annaya took a job as a maid but still did not have enough to provide for the family.

One evening, walking home from work, Anna encountered one of our teachers named Zara who invited her to the class meeting in Annaya’s village for 2 hours each week night. Annaya was excited for the opportunity to learn! She pleaded with Shreyas to let her attend, and she was able to join the class.
