♫I will live to carry Christ’s compassion, to love a world that’s broken, to be his hands and feet. I will live with the life that I’ve been given, and go beyond religion to see this world be changed by the power of your name♫
~lyrics, Lincoln Brewster
MAY 2011 – My family and I traveled from Wisconsin to Jacksonville, Florida to celebrate the first anniversary of Sisterhood Of Servants.
July 2011 – Our Rummaging For Rewards yard sale fundraiser was a huge success (even though no one actually held a yard sale! ☺) Through the generosity of many donors, over $4000 was raised. The net proceeds from the fundraiser were used to finalize printing and promotion of the S.O.S. Girls Leader Guide and finance our first homeschool exhibitor display.
August 2011 – I finished writing our S.O.S. Girls Leaders Guide just in time to debut it at the Chicago Homeschool Expo. We were blessed with a great location for our exhibitor booth and had the opportunity to speak with scores of home educators about S.O.S. Girls.
October 2011 – My husband accepted a position at the Renaissance World Golf Village and we began to make plans to move our family back to Jacksonville. I also began the logistical challenge of moving S.O.S. headquarters to Jacksonville.
January 2012 –
*Pat Ezell joined our board as Vice Chairman ☺
