I love to share good news with you and today I am deeply honored to give you, what I believe, is news that will warm your heart…make the world a brighter place, help light the way home for a woman in need and spread hope.
Right now you can light the way home and make a difference.
This past August I attended “Brighter!” at Thistle Farms, a non-profit organization in Nashville that is a sanctuary for healing women who are survivors of addiction, trafficking and prostitution. Jon Acuff spoke and if you’ve attended one of Jon’s events, they’re fun, entertaining and funny. This hot summer night, I was entertained, but I was also deeply touched to the core as Jon spoke about the “Light the Way Home” project. I had the privilege of speaking to Jon about his involvement because I want you, too, to have the opportunity to make a difference.
Jon has daughters and he and his wife, Jenny, make it a priority to remind them that they can do “special things with the power of community.” They can “connect to a cause and literally change the world because there’s possibility and hope.”
Please take a moment and watch this video, because the power is in the message and Jon’s words.
Like Jon, I visited Thistle Farms and sat in the Wednesday morning circle of Meditation and for a few minutes I felt small and ineffective. I, too, have a grown daughter and I can’t imagine what these women experienced in their lives at the hands of others, including their parents.
When you listen to stories of parents trafficking their daughters and selling them into prostitution, it’s truly overwhelming, but each of us has an opportunity to respond and make a difference.
I wondered – what can I do? What can we do? What can you do?
When we come together as a community – we CAN make a difference and Thistle Farms is doing just that.
You have a chance to light the way home for a woman who desperately needs hope and you need only purchase a candle. The Hope Candle is available beginning today and when you make your purchase, you’re contributing to a national movement to support women’s freedom and stop the “buying and selling of human beings.”
How can one little Hope Candle make a difference?
Five thousand high-quality candles (I have many, so I can attest to their quality and fragrance) have been hand-poured with love.
The benefits to Thistle Farms are a new candle-making machine, additional jobs, more women in recovery with economic independence and an increased awareness of the national anti-trafficking movement.
Pretty awesome benefits for one little candle.
The candle is a perfect holiday gift or home enhancement. It’s scent is white balsam fir with gold accents and you can even purchase them in bulk and resell them. More information about that here.
Five thousand Hope Candles will help light the way home for a woman whose life has been very different from yours and mine.
Will you Share the Light and be a part of this very special project? I know you will, my sweet reader.
Special thanks to Jon Acuff for taking the time to visit with and enlighten me and share his passion for Thistle Farms. Thank you Becca Stevens for your vision, dedication and belief that love does indeed, HEAL.
Once again…here’s your link to make a difference.
