Greetings from Colorado!

I am writing to you today to tell you about something that the Lord has been doing in my family’s life.  The last time I wrote to you was to ask for your support and come along with me on a very personal journey; to help me share the love of Christ through the launching of my book and a new ministry, TLC Squared: Endeavoring to “Re-create Homes One Family at a Time” via Teaching, Loving and Connecting families. 

Today, I am giving you an update on what has come about since launching the nonprofit organization, TLC Squared, and publishing my first book “Confessions of a Mother’s Heart – My Struggles and Victories from Calicosey (California, Colorado & New Jersey), Volume 1.

Here’s a list of the things God has accomplished through my family and TLC Squared Ministries from January 2017 through December 2018:

September 2018

  • Home Care Kit Assembly Day

We had several people gather in our home to put together the items that are placed in our Home Care Kit (HCK).  We were able to put almost 100 sets of kits to distribute to moms on an as needed basis.  Since September, we’ve given away 28 HCKs!  But, every one of them has either been personally handed to a mom or mailed to their home!  We’re hoping to build long lasting relationships with each mom and their family so we can accomplish our goal of “Re-creating Homes One Family at a Time”;

October 2018

  • Held our third Tea ‘n Talk of the year with Charmaine Stockstill, Nutritionist at Vitamin Cottage, Natural Grocers of Littleton;
  • Established relationships with or our personal Adult and Pediatric dentists to distribute and make Home Care Kits available to their patients, as they see fit;

November 2018

  • Held our annual Thanksgiving Ladies TIME-Out gathering;

December 2018

  • Ended the year with a Christmas White Elephant Tea Cup Party to honor and thank the Confessions of a Mother’s Heart, COMH Ministry Advisory Team.

As you have probably noticed, two of our main ministry projects are Tea ‘n Talks & and Home Care Kits.  Through Home Care Kits, provided by TLC Squared, moms are invited to attend COMH-Unity Support Group gatherings and Tea ‘n Talk events, where they will have opportunities to connect with their peers and have opportunities to build mentor relationships to gain hope in their parenting journey, especially if they are struggling with anxiety or postpartum depression.  COMH Ministry & Tea ‘n Talk events are designed to reach the women and moms that need somewhere safe and inviting to connect with others who are like minded.  

It is my heart’s desire to be able to reach as many groups of people in churches, mom’s groups, and women’s events so they will be encouraged to walk faithfully and not give up.

I am thankful to be able to share this family ministry update and vision with you.  I pray you will be spurred on to engage with God and His people, and be about the Lord’s business where you are in your life!

In Christ’s Love,
