    A Letter To The Church

    "So do not become proud, but stand in awe." Romans 11:20 Jesus Christ was never afraid to speak the truth but he always spoke it in love: he was the quintisential role model of firmness that was tempered at all times with a never ending desire for the end result to be one of...

    I was in New York once

    and a homeless man came up to me to ask if I would donate any money to him. You could see that he was a little shy because of the rejection he must have had before and was worried I would be the same. My three friends all told him no and walked away, I gave him whatever I had in...

    Grand Central Winter

    I've noticed that many people who haven't experienced homelessness tend to have quite negative attitudes about homeless people. This deeply saddens me. But as I read reviews of the book, Grand Central Winter, by Lee Stringer, I was encouraged. I read the book myself a few years...

    Barriers

    Years ago I heard the term, "barriers to employment" and realized that many of those barriers were present in my life. I was fortunate enough to receive lots of support to get beyond those issues. Now it's my brother's turn. Some of his barriers include not having a GED, lack of...

    Wishing I Could Do More To Help

    When me and my mom went out and a homeless person walked up to ask for change, my mom would give a dollar or two. And I would give $5 or any amount I could find. I would ask her "Why don't you give them more?" and she said that we can't just give everything away to homeless...

    The Man On The Side Of The Road

    It was the dark of night; the way we expect a typical story of this genre to start out. The young boy trekked across the paved streets, as the bitter cold began to engulf him. He wore nothing but rags - a tattered jacket, ripped jeans, worn black boots and gloves, which had...

    When I was a little girl my mother would take

    me to the city. I was always excited to go with her. However things would change when I witnessed a homeless man asking for spare change. It tore my heart apart so much I would cry in public. I would tell my mom that I want to help them by giving them a warm blanket, food and...

    when I was 4 years old and I remember it was really scary and cold at night. It's so hard and for whatever reason people treat you like a monster when the truth is it could happen to any one of us for any reason at any time. We all just need to stop the hate and fear and start...
