I was introduced about 9 months ago to Julie the founder of Beauty from Ashes (BFA) from a long time friend from church who had recently been hired as the Program Director for them. It was my horses and our mutual love of riding that brought us together initially. Already heavily involved in serving my church and another charity my involvement with BFA was slow going and I choose to initially focus on a growing friendship and enjoy my new horse riding buddy. You can learn a lot about a person when you spend hours at a time on the trail with them. And we have spent many many hours in the saddle since our first outing. :) You can also learn a lot about the organization they founded and lead. I realize that there are many organization that help the abused and trafficked girls and women but I cannot express to you enough the impact that seeing vibrant, healthy, strong women who have survived such ordeals lead others to health and wholeness in Christ. It is truly amazing. Their personal testimonies, the way the live their lives and their heart for serving these hurting girls and women is truly amazing. Whether you to invest $10 or $10,000 to change the life of an individual I can tell you not a dollar will be wasted. It's an investment that is changing lives of women, their families and the lives they touch across America.
