Enlightened was my overall feeling.

I was surprised at the many different issues that concerned adults in our city. I was enlightened to the different issues that concern families that I had not thought of before.

The first Denham Strong Community Meeting reminded me that we all play an important role in the future of our city. Each of us have different concerns and opinions and none of them are less important than the other. I know DRAINAGE is at the top of the list for most of us, but traffic, beautification, and our youth come in close behind.

I enjoy the meetings I attend each week and I am looking forward to the future of our city.

I feel even stronger that we are empowered as a group and dedicated in our common cause.

There Are No Words

No Words - MMs Blog

What an amazing year 2015 has been for Mighty Moms.  I love this little group we call Mighty Moms.  I love the way God is writing this story in our community.  I love the people we serve every week.  I love the volunteers I’ve met and the beginning of new relationships.  I love the hard work it takes to keep it all going.  The gratitude and joy that I experience every day because of the incredible people who make Mighty Moms happen is more than I could have ever dreamed of.

The volunteers, teachers, businesses, children, churches, and all those who gave their time and prayers have truly blown me away this year.  I have been reminded of the good in the world this holiday season.  I see the love of Christ permeating our little community.  I am so grateful for the people I am surrounded with and lucky to work along side so many caring leaders and individuals.

We all live crazy busy lives.  Our families, our jobs, and our ministries all take time in our week.  Our to-do lists continue to grow and our calendars are full.  So, a sincere thank you to those who are balancing it all and still serving and giving of their time and resources to Mighty Moms even in the midst of crazy busyness.  I deeply appreciate you.

Thank you to those who have rallied around Mighty Moms in many ways.  Praying on your hands and knees for hunger to cease in our neighborhoods.  Packing Full Tummy bags every week for children to take home on the weekends.  Hosting food drives and barrels in your offices and classrooms to collect food for our Holiday Pantry and Full Tummy Project.  Committing to deliver Full Tummy bags every week for the entire school year–you are angels to so many in need.  Donating to our organization because you believe it is a good and worthy cause.  Calling and asking me if there is anything you can help me with, bless you.

You are Rock Stars, Heroes, and World Changers.  We would not be where we are today without the power of your generous and passionate hearts.

As I think about the last 12 months,  here are a few examples of how you have been a part of blessing our community:

  • January Holiday Pantry
  • Keller Williams Red Day
  • Easter Holiday Pantry
  • Oak Point Fresh Market Lemonade Stand
  • Souper September
  • Integrity Insurance Fill A Tummy 5K and Fun Run
  • Our 40th Livingston Parish School joined Full Tummy Project
  • Volunteer SuperTeams were launched
  • Thanksgiving Turkey Meal Outreach

I am wildly thankful for this incredible group of people that God has placed in my heart and in my life.  There are no words to explain how I feel about each person, prayer, and dollar that has come been shared with Mighty Moms this year.

Xoxo,
Dawn

Let’s Win $20,000 for Mighty Moms

Our very own, Beth Clark, is being nominated for BlueCross BlueShield’s Angel Award by a dear friend, Cathy.  Part of the nomination asks for newspaper clippings, photographs, letters of support, videotapes, DVDs, etc.  Beth is humbled by the very notion, but we’re asking that you write a letter of support in Beth’s honor.    Because you know as well as I do, Beth gives selflessly of her time and energy for Mighty Moms, I am asking you to write a recommendation letter on her behalf.

Mighty Moms stands to gain $20,000 dollars if Beth wins.  Are you running the numbers for how many children we’ll feed with that?!   If you can help, please address a few key points in your letter, including:

  • What is your perception of the community Beth serves (Eastover)?
  • What does the nominee do to serve Louisiana children?
  • Did the nominee initiate new programs or activities and use new methods to solve problems?
  • Has the activity or service provided by the nominee produced positive changes and provided examples for other groups?
  • What results has the nominee produced?
  • What amount of time does the nominee devote to the activity or service?
  • Was the nominee active, not a figurehead?
  • Has the nominee overcome unusual challenges, such as limited resources, public perceptions of the problem or a personal disability?

The nomination deadline is Friday, April 5, 2013. If you can take just a moment to send a recommendation letter for Beth, who is a deserving advocate for children, she could be chosen as an honoree, and you will have played a large part in aiding a worthy local effort.  Please send your letter of recommendation before April 5 in one of the following ways:

Email:  [email protected]
Mail:  The Angel Award
P. O. Box 98029
Baton Rouge, Louisiana 70898-9029

About the Angel Award

Celebrating its 19th anniversary, the Angel Award is a statewide recognition program honoring exceptional volunteer efforts on behalf of Louisiana youth. Because making a difference in Louisiana’s communities requires time and money, the Angel Award includes a $20,000 grant from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation for each honoree’s charity.

Thank you so much for your help!  Your recommendation letter will help give Beth the best shot at getting recognized for the time and dedication she gives to the Mighty Moms organization and the children of Louisiana.

If you would like to know more about the Angel Award program or would like to nominate someone, please go to www.bcbsla.com/angelaward or call 1-888-219-BLUE (2583).
