Enlightenment!

By Kathy / March 9, 2015 / Blog / No Comments

One of the woman residents, her baby and I did a youth service at a local church last week. It was a pretty typical cross section of SWFL kids I imagine. A few were privileged but most were not. They were mainly a mix of North and Latin American heritage with a few Afro-Americans tossed in for go...

I was privileged yesterday to speak at another church in SWFL. It was a beautiful facility and the congregation was very friendly. As I started my presentation and ask “How many people here have heard of Lifeline Family Center?” almost no hands were raised in any of the three services...

Just too busy for a Good Cause

By Kathy / February 2, 2015 / Blog / No Comments

I didn’t get a post written last week. You’re thinking I was just loafing and wondering while I am still employed at LFC. Well, I spent most of the week at McGregor Baptist church in Fort Myers at their annual Missions Conference. It was five days of meetings and meals, making new fri...

The Power of Giving

By Kathy / January 19, 2015 / Blog / No Comments

One of the neat things I get to do as Ministry Development Director is to attend social functions in the community related to philanthropic giving.

Tourism at LFC

By Kathy / January 12, 2015 / Blog / No Comments

    Southwest Florida is a tourist magnet and why not! This is January and while our northern brethren dream of heat we luxuriate in a moderate clime with the sound of palm fronds rustling in the breeze. And when things get tough we can always go to the beach. I am always praying that [...
