Honestly…

 

I wanna see you be brave!

Just 4 days until race day…

 

For this note, I’m highlighting Lauren’s ToughKids Race song called, “Brave.”

 

There’s a lot that goes into training for a triathlon, especially if you are 8 years old and not comfortable with swimming. Lauren’s big lesson this summer was learning how to not worry about being perfect and allowing others to help. Because of that, she overcame her fears and became a much better swimmer.

 

Congratulations, Lauren! You showed all of us this summer that you can be brave.

 

Descriptions of our (5) Freedom’s Light charity organizations are below. Please consider giving today! Please let me know if you do…

 

God Bless,

The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need. Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House Foundation donates "comfort homes," built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times - during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury. At Fisher House, no family pays to stay at their facilities. Why? Because a family's love is good medicine…

Hundreds of thousands of military personnel are serving in far-off places defending the liberties we hold so dear - away from their families, friends, and the comforts of home.  In 2003, the USO discovered the changing needs of those thousands of deploying troops.  Understanding the impact that the little things can have and difference they can make, the USO launched Operation USO Care Package providing comforts of home in the form of a care package.  For as little as $25.00 you can send a care package letting a service member know that you care.
