“I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world,” said Mother Teresa. Today on Home School Heartbeat, join host Mike Smith to discover the impact of a recent project to help a local single, homeschooling mom.
Anne Miller, a Home School Foundation ambassador in Virginia, joins me again today to describe a recent ambassador project she helped coordinate in the Newport News area. Anne, tell us about the impact this project had on the mom you helped.
Well Mike, I think we all felt like the little pencils God used to send his love letter to this family. When we first met Leticia, she told me she didn’t grow up in a beautiful home, but she always wanted to have one for her children. She’s a single mom on disability with limited income, and her children also have a lot of health and learning challenges, so the resources were never there. I just see that this family experienced the love and the tender care of our Lord through His servants here on earth, with the Home School Foundation providing funding and more than forty volunteers showing up and putting in hundreds of hours, transforming the home of this dear family.
Well Anne, tell us about the volunteers. What were some memorable moments for them?
Well, the volunteers were amazing. It was especially moving to see all the young people working together to serve another family. Not only did they do a great job, but they got to experience firsthand the blessings of giving without any expectation of a return.
Anne, this is just tremendous! Thanks for inspiring our listeners with this practical example of love for someone in the homeschool community. It’s been great to talk with you this week. And until next time, I’m Mike Smith.
