Because life
never stops teaching.

Journaling for awareness. Growing for life.

A few years ago I reached out to Good Shepherd Shelter in L.A. to find out how I could help. I was inspired by their ability to help mothers and children rebuild and relearn after escaping domestic violence. Each family that comes to the shelter is given a completely furnished apartment to call home while they are healing. After about two years of counseling and education within that loving community, they are given the support to move forward, bringing everything in the apartment with them. When I told some friends at American Martyrs Outreach Ministry about the needs at the shelter, we began to gather yearly donations to help furnish apartments for new families being welcomed to the shelter. We’ve been able to supply couches, beds, dressers, clothing, books, dishes and so much more.

Sunday, March 2nd, my husband Kevin and I will be renting a U-Haul again with the McCarthy family and picking up large donations. If you live in the LA area and have items that could help a family start over, please email me at!

Thanks friends!
