Music to My Ears

For many, the Holidays are a wonderful time of year filled with family, fun, laughter, giving (and eating!). One of my favorite things about the Holidays is the Christmas music. I am an avid collector of Christmas albums, and coming from a musical family means that singing in church and playing instruments is a part... Continue Reading →

It’s all about the kids…

Jonathon, Sam and Emily along with their parents Charlotte and Rob were homeless—or practically homeless. This family of five had just moved to our area and were living in a burned-out trailer with no heat. It was winter. Charlotte and Rob and their three beautiful children had taken to huddling together on the living room... Continue Reading →

‘Tis the Season…

In early November 2009, Nicole, a mother of two, called Bridges of Hope in tears because she knew she and her husband Tom would not be able to afford a Thanksgiving dinner for her family. Tom had been laid off a few months earlier and the family was just making it on Tom’s unemployment and... Continue Reading →
