Blessed BEYOND Measure!

Wow!!! I do not really even have the words to describe how overwhelmed I am with blessings right now. As many of you know, The Christian Chronicle published an article about Contact this month. I am still in disbelief that there is a national magazine telling the stories of the incredible kids that I work with and the amazing things that the Lord is doing at Contact. It is absolutely inconceivable! I love working at Contact & am so grateful that Contact is where the Lord has chosen for me to be.

I simply want to say thank you!.. 

Thank you Lynn McMillon for taking the time to visit Contact and to write the article. You have influenced me so much throughout my college experience.

Thank you Ron & Judy Babbit for being my mentors over the years & for telling me years ago that I should be in ministry.

Thank you Joel, Kaytie, Jamie, D, Courtnay, Dillan, Ariel, and Houston for letting me work alongside and learn from you. We truly are blessed with an incredible team.

Thank you Dallas Koehn for continually critiquing my writings about Contact, as well as being concerned about my own spiritual walk.

Thank you Gary Kennedy (Grandpa) "for having all the faith in the world in me" & teaching me all my life what ministry looks like. I could not have asked for a better example of what real christianity looks like.

Thank you Greg Kennedy for teaching the boys for sometime now. They desperately need examples of good men! Thank you for filling that role.

Thank you Shelly Logan for working alongside me in everything that I am involved in at Contact & for continually challenging me to be a better Christian woman. 

Thank you Mickey Bilby & Ladean Bilby for continually supporting me in the work at Contact. I appreciate everything you do & have done so that I can continue there. 

Thank you Brent Bilby, Maddi Kennedy, & Brock Kennedy for being the best sibling/cousins anyone could ever ask for! You've encouraged me so much just by using your gifts to touch other people. 

Thank you Curtis West for being a man that honors God first and through so caring about the children we work with and helping them know God. I am blessed to have such an amazing partner in ministry & am so grateful for everything you have done. 

Thank you to all of Park Plaza for your continual emotional, spiritual, and financial support. I was truly blessed to grow up in a place that is mission-minded and contains so many powerful examples.

And finally... thank you to every single person who supports me in any way, shape, or form. A ministry like this is impossible without every single one of you. Your prayers mean more to me then you will ever know! Thank you for your emotional, spiritual, and financial support. And thank you for taking the time to read my blogs, support letters, and The Christian Chronicle. You have each blessed my life beyond measure.

Lord, thank you for placing me at Contact! Thank you for each  & every person who has supported me over the years. Thank you for each and every child that you have allowed me to work with. Never let me forget that it is you who gave me a job in ministry. Thank you for using me. I pray that you will continue to use me however you see fit. You truly have blessed me more than I could have ever imagined. You are an awesome God!

"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all that we ask or imagine. According to His power that is at work within us."- Ephesians 3:20
