I'm Out Change My World

Friday, November 20, 2009
Several years ago, my mom passed a book down to me that had impacted her when she was my age. It is called, I'm Out to Change my World by Ann Kiemel. Great book. You can borrow it, if you'd like. Just ask, and I'll send it your way.

I was reminded of the title when out shooting for the St. Louis Continuum of Care website yesterday- my little part of helping to end chronic homelessness. This is not the final shot for this particular part of the project, as the weather was "muddy" not as crisp and beautiful as we'd hope for. But I found the location I'd been sent to discover. I count that as a success.

I thought I'd include bits of the process here on my blog until the final pictures are ready to help end homelessness!

Would you like to join me in praying for the end of homelessness in St. Louis?


God, will you do that for St. Louis? Will you end chronic homelessness? I pray that you give wisdom to the 50 not-for-profits in St. Louis working to this end and perseverance to press on to that end. Jesus, bring about compassion in your people to make that happen! Amen.

this is probably a really random comment but this reminded me of an amazing project called Help-portrait...it's happening all over the nation on Dec. 12. www.help-portrait.com

Oh sweetie... I'm just reading this now. I'm kind of getting mushy and teary because I know that God put us together to show your photos and to tell the story.

Thank you.....for everything.
