I believe that when we show our youth that Integrity , Truth , Perseverance and Handwork is more valuable then doing things the easy way. Our Society be comes GREAT!!!

As the Founder of Love In Abundance Vickie Gunnells-Hodge has not only touched the lives of young girls that have been a part of her program, she has made it a personal mission to reach these young ladies on level that they no only relate to but identify with. Vickie recognized early on that when you make the participants a part of the process, they really appreciate being included and being told what to do. Those young ladies know that they have in Vickie an advocate that will help them with whatever issue they may have which helps instill in them peace of mind to go forward in whatever they must deal with. We need more Vickies in our communities to help with our youth so that maybe they won't have a tendency to be lead astray.
