Lakeshore is one of those amazing places where I experience God in a profound way. As a volunteer, I have served as a counselor, as part of leadership teams, and as a board member. Each experience humbled and inspired me. One night while doing pottery with a Girl Scout troop, I invited a disruptive restless girl to help me glaze my favorite piece of pottery. I didn't really want her help but I felt obligated to keep her busy and out of trouble. She began painting and as she painted she told me her story. She was her dad's last birthday gift. He was dying on his birthday and wanted to see her one more time. Her mom couldn't provide her a home so she was living with an aunt and uncle. She relaxed into painting and the disruptive and restless behaviors disappeared. I sat there in awe of God. He had used this place and this girl to make me a more compassionate person. I grew up a little that day and am thankful to Lakeshore for being a place that brings out the best in us.
