I read two powerful books that totally knocked me over and left me weeping: Half the Sky and Half the Church. The first book is a difficult read as it reveals the plight of women in various parts of the world in pretty graphic detail. The second book is more of a Christian response to this-- that we are all made in God's image. What is true for me is true for the trafficked women in India... After drying tears and much prayer, I've asked God to show me ways that I can help women and young girls, my sisters in Christ. One organization that keeps showing up is right here in Sonoma County, Crossing the Jordan. They are doing tremendous work helping so many hurting women right in my own backyard. I am hoping that as schedules shift and opportunities arise, that I can further lend a hand to this worthwhile endeavor. For now can I ask that you consider helping me hep them. This coming weekend at 800Blessings This painting will be auctioned and 100% of the proceeds donated to this stellar organization. I look forward to seeing you there. Please email me if you have any questions.
