Been working with Layman Lessons for over five years. Layman's Lessons is 100% about helping the down and out. Few ministries achieve as much for zero compensation. Faith walk from A to Z. The need is out there. This nonprofit is getting the job done. Day in and day out providing food to the homeless and hurting.

I have had the privilege of being involved with Laymen Lessons, Inc. since 2003. I serve on the board and for 4 years was involved in the day to day ministry with the homeless in the streets of Nashville. Louie Johnston and his team of tireless volunteers give of themselves physically, spiritually and financially to meet the physical and spiritual needs of the homeless of Nashville. From feeding them a hot meal, providing clothing and sharing the free gift of salvation every Saturday morning year round whether blazing hot or freezing cold, sack lunches to get them through another hungry night, bottled water to quench their physical thirst, to providing a home for those who choose to start a new life with job training, life skills and learning to live as a contributing member of society, Laymen Lessons provides all this and more. Noone, including the director are paid workers. All contributions are turned right around and used to feed, clothe and shelter the homeless. Giving to this ministry could help save a life! If you are in the Nashville area, I encourage you to stop down at the parking lot some Saturday morning and see Christianity in action. Your life will be changed! I watched my 12 year old daughter take off her shoes and give them to a lady who could barely walk because her feet were so swollen and infected from walking because she had no shoes. What an incredible moment to see my little girl be Jesus in the life of someone else.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing men restored to their families through this ministry.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find more organizations to help support them.
