Ok so, Friday I told you about the short segment I taped with one of our local morning shows. 
Well here it is!
There is so much I could have said and would have liked to say, but I'm believing the heart and cause of Project Hope was shown, and a seed was planted in getting Project Hope made known in our community.
I know this is just the beginning and I am already looking into ways to expand it beyond San Antonio!!
 
  God has been so amazing you guys. It is just a testimony even to me, for how He will bless your endeavors when you are obedient to the call He puts on your life.
He gets all the glory. 
Now, Please don't count the amount of times I said "um" without even realizing it. 
Please also know I had some awesome leopard heels on too, you just can't see them ;)

  3. Way to go love! So happy for you spreading the word! Grateful to be a small part of it! I'll have some booties coming your way tomorrow---I guess I'd better overnight them so they get there huh?!?!?! I wish I'd have started earlier! They are simple to whip up, just finding the time is hard to do! I'll keep going once this batch is done and I'll be ready for your next craft night! I think we need to spread this world wide! I"ll be the Nashville Chairperson! ;)

  5. i have goosebumps. just thinking about how this used to be a just a dream in your heart, but because you took that first step, God has grown it and blessed it and used it to bring lots of women together all over the country, and will use it to bless lots of women in your town and offer them hope. eternal hope, most importantly. it's just a little bit mind-blowing to me right now. thankful for you, friend :)

  8. this is just a testament to God firstly planting in our hearts HIS desires as our own, Him inspiring you and others to take steps of faith, and then Him producing big, lasting fruit to come of it all...we'll never know how much. His work through your steps of faith is already and is going to be really huge. all I can think of is that THIS is how the body of Christ is supposed to work! all the members working together, things falling into place, and lives are impacted. people are loved, and Love makes all the difference. thankful for you and your big faith!

  9. I am a first time visitor to your blog. I am really in awe of your courage, your faith, and your passion for this cause so close to your heart. Your love for God, your love for life, and your compassion for the souls around you really show through. It is hard to step back from it all sometimes, I know. But as someone from afar, I feel your work will go far. Praying for you...
